OLED Association outs Galaxy S III screen: 4.6-inch Super AMOLED+

Welcome to your daily dose of Galaxy S III news! We still haven't seen a convincing render or press shot of Samsung's upcoming flagship, but according to and off-hand sentence from the OLED Association,  we may finally know exactly what screen it's going to use. In among a gigantic report, the Association let slip that the Galaxy S III will have a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD+ screen - a 720p panel similar to, but distinct from, the screen that's on the Galaxy Nexus. What's different about it? That little plus sign makes all the difference: it means that the screen in question won't be using a Pentile pixel matrix. The report pegs the phone's release for May.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 kernel source released ahead of device

This seems a bit odd. It appears that Samsung has now released the kernel source code for their highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 with the first Super AMOLED Plus HD display. First announced and debuted back at IFA in September we haven't seen or heard anything about this impressive slate from Samsung since, especially in the US. Does this mean we could be seeing it launched and officially announced at CES 2012 next week?

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 Galaxy S II AT&T Sign Up Page Live with Details

The team at AT&T are now officially ramping up their online attack for the Samsung Galaxy S II, posting this week their first sign-up page for email updates on the device, orange, black, and blue flying everywhere. Mostly orange though, of course, as AT&T has in recent months been pushing a massively orange-looking ad campaign to work in a rather aesthetically pleasing way with their heavily Blue and White globe logo. Look nice to you here? You betcha. It'd be rather tough to make this device look less than amazing, when you get down to it.

Android Community Weekly: September 3, 2011

To start off September, we have a massive amount of tech news to present in this issue of Android Community Weekly! Sunday, the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE and Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE were officially announced. Later on, we ran across a recently initiated build of CyanogenMod 7 for none other than the HP TouchPad. Which build will have full functionality first? CM7 or the Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) port that’s also in the works?

Samsung Galaxy S II Upgrade Teased for IFA 2011 [Update: VIDEO]

We've gotten our first peek at what may well be the next generation Samsung Galaxy S II, or at least the idea of it, in a short 30 second teaser trailer for IFA 2011. This trailer is at the moment no longer available for public viewing (and will probably remain this way until we get a bit closer to the actual Berlin event,) but based on what we've seen, IFA 2011 is sure to have an "Unpacked" event that'll reveal some sort of newness in the smartphone-holding hands of citizens in the form of bright lights. This advertisement took the form of the handheld torches sort of look we've been treated to in the past when the Galaxy S II was first teased, this new ad revealing not just a whole heck of a lot of additional info on the subject.

Samsung Galaxy R Officially Announced

It's time to get funky in the next Galaxy. We've got word directly from Samsung that this device, a device we've spoken about once with a few specifications without an official confirmation of its launch, then a lovely leaked intro video as played from the device itself. Now the full release is live! This device is the smaller brother of the Samsung Galaxy S II and it shows! Without a doubt inspired greatly by the original design (be it the Galaxy S II, the Infuse 4G, or perhaps even the Galaxy R itself,) Samsung has been thinking pretty hard about putting out a collection of devices that looks very similar but has better specs in certain places that make them all unique.

Samsung Infuse 4G Review

Behold, the herald of Galactus!* Truly if ever there were a phone sent by a manufacturer to pave way for a much more powerful phone, this is it. The Samsung Infuse 4G is to the untrained eye a gigantic screen with a powerful single-core engine under the hood and a big fat camera on the back of a "razor thin" candybar form factor. The Samsung Infuse 4G is currently the the holder of the biggest and brightest display of all Android devices classified as a handset. Larger than this and they're tablets. Smaller than this and they're just pipsqueaks with a weight problem. Will it stand up to the current state whilst riding on into a future with a big cousin looming quickly overhead? View here a conundrum!
