LG renames Optimus LTE to Optimus True HD LTE to highlight non-Pentile screen

When it comes to Pentile matrix displays, there are three major opinions: those who don't know, those who don't care, and those who absolutely can't stand them. LG seems to be squarely in the third camp, and they want to make sure that Chinese customers know exactly where they stand. To that end they've renamed their current flagship Optimus LTE (known as the LG Nitro HD and the LG Spectrum here in the States) to "Optimus True HD LTE", highlighting the fact that their 4.5-inch IPS 720p panels use a standard matrix layout. The first market to see the change will be Hong Kong.

New “Dark Google Apps” mod saves battery on OLED phones

Screens that use organic light-emitting diodes, better known as OLED and AMOLED, have a unique method of image production. When instructed to display a "black" color, the individual pixel cells are physically turned off, providing the stunning blacks seen on OLED-equipped devices like the Galaxy S II, DROID RAZR and the original Nexus One. Interestingly, this also means that displaying a mostly black image on an OLED screen also draws less power than a white or full-color image. To take advantage of this technological quirk, an intrepid modder on XDA has set about modifying all of Google's core Android apps to save the maximum amount of battery on OLED phones, via the simple expediency of reversing the color scheme.

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Review

Welcome to the United States, Galaxy S II, I see you've got the longest name in the history of smartphones here in your initial iteration! Don't worry, though, it's nothing to be afraid of - you're still the thinnest 4G device on any and every carrier you'll be on here in the states, and with this first launch on the WiMAX carrying carrier, you're round and lovely as well. The Epic 4G Touch has what many might call the most unique look to it of all the Galaxy S II devices out thus far, having a 4.5-inch display, the roundest edges in a Galaxy S II thus far, and almost spherical back corners with a textured battery cover. Four buttons at the bottom and it's lost its international single-center-button charm, will it add up to the legends we've heard of this device as it's been out for the past few months in Europe in Asia?

Samsung Confirms Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch

Well guys it appears this is a bit more official after this. Samsung has confirmed the Galaxy S II with 4G WiMAX and it will be called the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch on their online training site. I must say that is a HUGE name for a smartphone and it really is just way too long. I'll be calling it the SGSIIE4GT for short, if you call that short.

Samsung GT-19220 Photo Leaked, Packs a huge AMOLED display [Update]

Here is a photo that will most likely get those rumor mills stirring again. We aren't sure exactly what we are looking at, or how big the screen is but comparing it to the 4.0" display on the Galaxy S next to it, I'd say it's pretty large. Sources are claiming this to be the new Samsung GT-I9220 that we recently saw on a leaked Samsung roadmap. While the leak is claiming it to possibly be a 5.29" AMOLED display with a 1280x720p resolution the leaked roadmap suggests something much smaller for the GT-I9220.
