Samsung Super AMOLED HD Displays Coming Soon?

We all have been hearing a lot about HD displays on our smartphones as of late. From the HTC Vigor being HD, to the Droid HD spotted this morning. When we say HD we mean something packing in a 720p or higher resolution. The Vigor is rumored to be 1280x720 and the Droid HD should be similar. New reports from OLED-info is now claiming that Samsung and their AMOLED displays will be HD and are coming soon.

Samsung Droid Charge eyes Droid lineup

Samsung looks to add to Verizon's line of Droid handsets with the Droid Charge that sports a clever new red eye icon. As the exclusive licensee of the Droid name from Lucasfilm, Verizon has been adding to the Droid brand with phones from Motorola and HTC. The Droid Charge, originally code named the Samsung Stealth V, has identical specs to the Galaxy S but brings a larger, 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen and 4G LTE speed to the mix. The Charge has a single core 1Ghz processor and the same 8mp camera used in the Samsung Fuse 4g, and capable of shooting full 1080p HD video. The Droid Line originally launched under Verizon with the Motorola Droid. Motorola has since expanded it's robot reach with the Motorola Droid X, Motorola Droid 2, and Motorola Droid Pro. HTC wasn't about to be left out and camera along in between with the HTC Droid Eris and Droid Incredible. Now, the Droid family grows against with Samsung's Droid Charge. But what's really interesting is how Samsung is pushing their own, more ornate version of the iconic Droid Red Eye that Motorola launched. HTC wasn't privy to adding the red eye to their marketing, but Samsung has managed to use it with flair. Did Samsung just change it enough to get away with it or are they being allowed to under the terms of their deal with Verizon? Kinda much ado about nothing since it's the phone that really matters, but it's just one of those things that make you go "hmmmmmm." [via PocketNow]

Samsung SCH-W899 Dual Screen gets FCC’d

Tear down images of the Samsung SCH-W899 Dual Screen clamshell handset have popped up and looking at the design, it's a rather interesting design choice. First the cool features, the "Sch" has two 3.3" Super AMOLED screens sitting in what looks like a back to back configuration. The primary screen is for palming the phone for smart computing. Then, when users want to make a phone call, they flip it up "old school" and the second screen comes to life. http://androidcommunity.com/wp-admin/tools.php

HTC Thunderbolt display comparison: looks are deceiving

Users of the new HTC Thunderbolt may be quite happy with the phone's touchscreen display ... so long as they don't show it next to the Google Nexus S or the Atrix 4G. Comparing the Thunderbolt's TFT display with the Google Nexus S Super AMOLED display or even the Atrix 4g qHD display, it really shows just how muted and washed out the images from the TBolt really look. But according to the review by Vince over at SlashGear, it's still a pretty impressive display. Users just shouldn't succumb to display envy.

US Cellular offers buy one get five deal on Android

U.S. Cellular has announced a family sized buy one, get up to five free, deal on Android handsets and messaging phones. Customers who sign up for a two year US Cellular agreement and purchase a Samsung Mesermize (aka Galaxy S) for $99.99 can get up to five LG Optimus U smartphones free or one Samsung Messager Touch for $29.99 and get up to five Samsung Profiles for free.

There's even more benefit if customers add either their Primary Plus Plan or Belief Plan which offers phone upgrades after 18 months.

Ferber, executive vice president of operations for U.S. Cellular. “Busy parents will love how the cutting-edge Android-powered smartphones help them stay productive, and kids can stay entertained and connected with friends on the go. Many of our customers prefer texting over talking, so we also wanted to delight them with great deals on our messaging phones.”

Samsung Galaxy SL GT-I9003 ditches Super AMOLED for Super Clear LCD

As predicted, Samsung has quietly unveiled the Galaxy SL GT-I9003, a Super Clear LCD version of the existing Galaxy S. The new model keeps the Galaxy S' 1GHz Hummingbird processor, Android 2.2 Froyo OS and 16GB of onboard storage, but swaps out the Super AMOLED display. Although Samsung hasn't confirmed it, the exchange is believed to be to preserve stocks of Super AMOLED for its newer devices; the best-selling Galaxy S is due to be replaced at MWC 2011 in a week or so. Right now it's being listed on the Samsung Middle-East site, but there's no telling whether other regions will also get this alternative model. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

Is the Samsung GT-I9003 a Galaxy S with Super Clear LCD?

Last month we started hearing rumors of a device making the rounds with a GT-I9003 model number. Speculation led us to believe that it was either a Nexus S with a Super LCD display, or a Galaxy S with the same display. Now, after further speculation, it seems the later will be true and that the I9003 is on track to replace the Galaxy S (I9000).

LG Pecan to be NFC Phone Launched at Mobile World Congress 2011

Two Korean publications, PlusNews and Etnews are suggesting that LG is planning to release a $200 (USD) mass market phone that's got built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities and goes by the name of LG Pecan. Cute! A strange turn in both stories is that this phone will be running Android 2.2, which, as you know, does not include native support for NFC. On the other hand, both publications say they do have a direct line to LG - which I don't think is too far out of reality to be true, so let's listen in!

Samsung Vibrant 4G for T-Mobile Poses for Photo, Shows Off Android 2.3 [Update]

The Samsung Vibrant 4G has been getting a lot of press lately, but not for the right reasons. The device's feature set should be the focus for potential customers. Instead, suggestive politics and rumors foreshadow this still unannounced device's upcoming availability. For one unnamed tipster, who managed to get some hands-on time with the device, the next generation Vibrant handset from Samsung is all set to bring T-Mobile's 4G network to the handset. That, and an unexpected update to the mobile Operating System.
