Korean LG G2 seen with removable battery and micro SD slot

It is a known, but sometimes still perplexing, practice for a smartphone model to have variants available only in certain markets that differ only in some hardware detail.

Galaxy S III enters testing in Korea, may have non-Pentile screen

Another week, another batch of Samsung Galaxy S III rumors. We know it's coming, because a Samsung representative told AsiaE that the device has entered the testing phase in Samsung's home territory of South Korea. The standard testing regimen apparently takes two months, but Samsung wants it done faster than that - perhaps to get it good and ready for a pre-Olympics rollout. There's also news out of Korean site DDaily that the GSIII uses a 4.65-inch 720p Super AMOLED screen. That sounds identical to the panel found on the Galaxy Nexus, with one important difference: it doesn't use the Pentile pixel layout.
