As reported before, the Optimus G will be the world's first LTE smartphone to have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (1.5GHz). According to LG, this makes it "not just one of the fastest phones on the market, but also one of the most powerful."
The handset incorporates a 4.7 inch True HD IPS+ display (1280 x 768 pixels), QickMemo, Live Zooming, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of memory, MicroSD card support, and a strong 2,100 mAh battery. For many unknown reason, AT&T's Optimus G may have an 8MP rear camera, not really a 13MP one (like the international version). It appears like Sprint will keep the 13MP camera though. At launch, the smartphone will run Android 4.0 ICS, but an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is scheduled for later.
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics today announced that the high-powered LG Optimus G superphone will be available in the United States on the AT&T and Sprint networks. As the world's first quad-core LTE (Long-Term Evolution) smartphone with the Qualcomm SnapdragonTM S4 Pro processor, LG Optimus G is not only one of the fastest phones on the market, but also one of the most powerful.
Designed to set a new standard in the industry, LG Optimus G combines LG's leading LTE, display and energy technologies with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro processor to create an extremely fast and incredible mobile experience. Equipped with a high-density 2,100mAh battery and impressive 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display, Optimus G users can seamlessly multitask between personal, business and entertainment needs and go beyond the boundaries of traditional on-the-go smartphone capabilities.
"LG Optimus G is the culmination of cutting-edge technologies provided by LG's class-leading global entities," said James Fishler, senior vice president, marketing and go-to-market operations, LG Electronics USA. "Drawing upon expertise from the LG Mobile Communications Company, LG Display, LG Chem and LG Innotek , we have carefully designed a new superphone that encourages users to step beyond everyday boundaries and explore a limitless world of power and creativity."
The elegant yet sleek design and the imaginative user experience displayed in the new Optimus G are made possible thanks to a collection of technologies from industry-leading developers in their fields. State-of-the-art display technologies from LG Innotek and LG Display such as True HD IPS Plus and Zerogap Touch, a unibody unit that eliminates the gap between the glass and the LCD panel, harmonize to offer one of the slimmest, sharpest and clearest viewing experiences yet. The new battery from LG Chem has a longer life designed for multitasking. An ultra high-resolution, compact camera is employed in the Optimus G to offer super sharp photos without pixilation.
Sprint and AT&T will be among the first wireless service providers in the world to offer the LG Optimus G, which is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor - a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU processor with Asysnchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing, which enables each core to power up and down independently to increase performance while saving battery life.
Combined with LTE technology, the impressive processor allows users to easily and quickly view a video while running other apps at the same time. All of this power and functionality is housed in a light weight, eye-catching slim body to cater to fashionable lifestyles. LG developed and patented Crystal Reflection to give the back cover the ability to display different patterns depending on the angle and lighting. The intricate pattern gives Optimus G a clean finish reminiscent of a jewel.
The Optimus G creates the perfect combination of pleasure and functionality through a unique user experience not seen on any other device. While mobile communication, business, and entertainment are easily accommodated with the Optimus G, the all-new device can also release one's inner artist with a wide range of features including:
The QSlide Function shows two different screens simultaneously on one display so users can quickly send an important work email while playing a graphic-intense video at the same time.
QuickMemo allows users to take notes on captured documents or photos with their fingers and instantly share with colleagues as an attachment or URL.
Live Zooming enhances viewing experiences by enabling consumers to zoom in up to five times while watching video to see small details normally hidden on the screen.
Photographs can be intensified with camera capabilities like Time Catch Shot, which empowers the user to choose the best photo among various shots taken before the shutter button is pressed.
Dual Screen Dual Play not only allows mirroring between the smartphone and a TV or monitor, it also has the ability to display different content on each screen. For example, a slide presentation can be displayed on the monitor while the Optimus G shows the accompanying speaking notes.
Creativity is also put to the test by the Icon Personalizer, which allows consumers to customize the sizes and images of their most-used apps.
Advanced 13 MP or 8 MP rear-facing camera with Time Catch Shot, "cheese shutter" and Smart Shutter and Low Light Shot Noise Reduction
Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system

But, the launch of this tablet depends upon the sales generated by Galaxy note 8.0. Another tablet by the name of Galaxy tab 3 10.1 is also in Samsung's plans and could any time this. Though, all these tablets will LTE versions too which is good news for all the tablet users. But, they would be required to pay a higher cost for buying LTE version.
Furthermore, Samsung is also working upon Galaxy Tab Plus too; it would be somewhat a special tablet from Samsung and would be releasing some time in this current year. Till then we have to wait and see what these tablets really possess and look like.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE version is all set to launch in U.S. All the date for the launch is not yet provided but it is believed to be launching very soon. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a high-profit device powered by a 1.4 GHz dual core processor and a 2 GB RAM. The phone also one large screen having a gorilla glass measuring 10.1 inches and resolutions of 1280 x 800 pixels. 5megapixel rear and 1.9 mega-pixel front are its salient features. There is one powerful battery attached with the phone with the power of 7000 mAh. In terms of storage, 16 GB memory internal memory is available in the phone and if it's not enough there is place for micro SD slot available for the users.
If see the official page of the phone there it is writer price tag of $499, but it's yet to be opened for sales to the general public.
Samsung follows a unique trend of launching many mid range devices each year. One might call it a tactical move, as Samsung wants to produce something for each market segment. Whatever it is, it's working for them at the moment, as their products are the most demanding in the market.
Samsung's 2013 plan hasn't changed and it took one step closer by launching Galaxy Express, and it has planned to launch 8 more like this in the coming year. The names of the upcoming phone are as follows: Galaxy Frame, Galaxy Pocket 2, Galaxy Star, Galaxy Young, Galaxy Core, Galaxy Fonblet 5.8, and Galaxy Fonblet 6.3. Furthermore, a special device to feature HomeSync is also in line for launch, although, much hasn't been revealed regarding it but it is believed that it would be fascinating.
It is likely that Samsung would be showcasing some of these devices at MWC 2013 in Barcelona. But, the most awaited one would be HomeSync, we shall wait for MWC 2013 to have exact idea of what these device look like.
In a bid to attract hip customers who love purple and Samsung, Sprint might just release a purple Galaxy S III next month. A leaked document hints at a new color for the S III and although the S IV is already out, the S III is not so far behind on specifications and still packs the punch. Also, the fantastic price drop on Sprint plan and even on prepaid, will more likely increase the subscription and sales for this awesome device.
A rendering of a purple Samsung can be seen over the net and no official photos of the actual one yet. Also, there are no news about pricing and if there are any other special modifications that will come with the new S III skin. Who knows? Samsung loves to surprise its patrons and rivals at the last possible moment.
Verizon's Galaxy Nexus looks like it might finally benefit from an update from 4.1 Jelly Bean to the latest Android version. This device has been "unfairly" left out and it's been well over 5 months since the 4.2 Jelly Bean came out. Now, you might want to try a leaked ROM for your Galaxy Nexus that may possibly turn out to be just the thing you have been waiting for.
Also, please be reminded that this is not the final version of the ROM and it could be slow or buggy initially, but it really is bound to improve. Also, it should be flashed from stock software. Back up your phone if possible and flash at your own risk, since this will void your warranty and it could even kill your phone if done incorrectly. If you're too cautious and would not want to risk your phone, wait for the official OTA rollout, it probably won't take more than a couple of months if we're hearing constant news (or rumors) about a Galaxy Nexus update.
In the not so distant future, Samsung is said to be going to launch bigger devices of 5.8- and 6.3-inch sizes and no word is given yet if these will be phones or tablets. The 5.8-incher has a model number GT-i9152 and it is possible that it will support dual SIM because Samsung uses a number scheme ending in 2 for their Duos products.
On the other hand, the 6.3-incher has a GT-i9200 and it may have been initially rumored to be the size of the upcoming Galaxy Note 3. It might possibly be the biggest smartphone (if Samsung confirms this) and it might also be compatible with the game pad accessory that the Galaxy S 4 was meant to have.
According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 will already be available on the last week of May.
You heard that right, Samsung Galaxy S4 coming to India on April 25; price around Rs 40,000 or $730 USD, quite expensive.
Unveiled on March 14, the Galaxy S4 has a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 441 ppi. The Galaxy S4's screen is 56 per cent larger than the iPhone's. It weighs 130g and is 7.9 mm thick; it's slimmer than its predecessor.
Other features are the same as on the Snapdragon variant, including a Full HD panel, 2 gigs of RAM, a 13 MP cam, a 2,600 mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean + TouchWiz.
The phone has an internal memory of 16GB, which can be expanded up to 64GB, and has 2GB RAM. Powered by a 2600 mAh battery, its battery is 20% larger than that of the Galaxy S III.
Those who are in, will you buy one at this price?
Samsung announces that their flagship smartphone will be available in seven mobile carriers in the US. AT&T, Cricket, C Spire, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular and Verizon will all carry the popular smart phone and will undoubtedly register record sales for the device, seeing as it is really quite well-liked by many.
Most, if not all of these carriers offer the S 4 for at least $629 for a one-time cash out or a lower fee for a two-year contract with the carrier. Other retailers have also either announced or have leaked documents purporting that they will start selling the S 4 tentatively on the 26th.
Furthermore, Samsung also released official information that the US version will get the Snapdragon chipset. The Galaxy S 4 enjoys unprecedented popularity ever since rumors have started coming out about its launch. We are now just patiently waiting for the HTC One's arrival to see if it will have a relatively significant share of the smartphone pie as well and if it can really hold a candle against the Galaxy S 4.
Samsung must have noticed the success that the Xperia Z in terms of its being water-proof and it is really something that the Korean company has not delved in yet. There are talks that the company is keen on developing an S 4 rugged variant that will possibly be dust, shock and/or water resistant.
There is indeed a market for devices that could withstand intense conditions and those that require better specs to go with the "invincibility" of the device and the rugged Galaxy S 4 just might be it.
Furthermore, according to rumors, Samsung might actually unveil one in the coming weeks. Apparently, a high-ranking Samsung official has mentioned the possibility in a press conference in the Gulf. Let's just wait for a few more days for more details about this vague rumor, but we know how rumors sometimes turn out to be true.
Engadget has received a document which shows that Three UK should start selling the Galaxy Note III on September 16. The Sony Xperia Z1 is expected to arrive a bit later - on September 24. At the very bottom of the screenshot we can see that the LG G2 is also headed to Three, being scheduled to go on sale on October 1.
The two most anticipated smartphones of next week's IFA show, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z1, haven't been officially announced, but neither manufacturer has made any secret of their existence.
Samsung's good heart may not be the reason we're getting the upgrade though, as it surely has an ulterior motive - to give as many people access to the Galaxy Gear smartwatch as possible. The Gear is only compatible with hardware running Android 4.3 and at the moment, that's only the Galaxy Note 3 and the 2014 Note 10.1. Add the many millions of Galaxy S3 and S4 owners into the mix, and Samsung's sales projections for the watch rise considerably.
According to Sam Mobile, Samsung confirmed that the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S III would be updated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean starting October. This lines up well with what was previously reported about the S III - skipping Android 4.2.2, and going straight to 4.3.
The Note II will probably get the 4.3 update pretty soon as well, although Samsung didn't confirm this yet.
Samsung is reportedly focusing on a rugged water- and dust-proof variant from the Galaxy Note 3.
According to korean's ETNews, and is also considering making the Galaxy S5 rugged and hard out of the box, similar to Sony's Xperia Z and Xperia Z1. Samsung won't be downgrading the hardware on either device for the rugged variants, that is stark contrast to the Galaxy S4 Active, which saw its specs watered down in exchange for a tougher and resistant build.
As the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could easily get a ruggedized variant, it's too early to be taking anything about the Galaxy S5 too seriously. Actually, it's best to not pay much heed to the of these rumors until something substantial turns up, though with the flexible display smartphone expected to become a reality soon, ruggedness could just be the next big feature Samsung puts its focus on.
T-Mobile USA is getting ready to launch a new Android smartphone made by Samsung, codenamed Garda, it not a high end smartphone according to the leak.
From the information available at the moment, we know that the Samsung Garda SGH-T399 runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Reportedly, its features include a WVGA display of 4 inches size, a 1.4GHz processor which is a dual core and LTE connectivity.
Samsung Garda could be available at T-Mobile starting October 18, its final name will probably have "Galaxy" in it.
There is no word on how much T-Mobile will ask for the Samsung SGH-T399. In any case, the handset should not cost more than $350 - $400 without a contract.
According to Sam Mobile, the S4 Mini La Fleur will be launched before the holiday season, The "flowery" edition will be made available in both single and dual SIM configurations, and in the color red, though other color options might be made available later on.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini La Fleur feature Android Jelly Bean (but upgradeable to 4.4 Kit Kat), a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED qHD display, 1.9MP front facing camera, 8MP rear camera with LED flash, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,900 mAh battery.
Samsung's Galaxy S4 Zoom hits AT&T for $200 on-contract on November 8th.
The Galaxy S 4 zoom is really a 4G LTE smartphone that includes a 16-megapixel camera with 10 x optical zoom. The lens includes a by hand adjustable zoom ring that enables customers to spin to zoom out and in. The devoted shutter button and Optical Image Stabilizer permit easy shooting. The Universe S 4 zoom captures video at 30fps in 1080p or 60fps at 720p, featuring a built-in Xenon expensive and 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone's screen is really a beautiful 4.3" Super AMOLED display.
Advanced camera features include:
- 10x Optical Zoom - Capture beautiful images from far away or up close accurately and easily
- Smart Modes -Choose from one of 25 pre-set camera modes, like Sunset, Best Face, Drama, and Panorama to capture the best photo possible
- 16-megapixel BSI CMOS Sensor - The built-in Optical Image Stabilizer helps keep the camera perfectly still, reducing blur and stabilizing the image
UK MOBILE RETAILER Carphone Warehouse has said that the Sony Xperia E is going to be arriving on its shelves in February. The web phone shop announced today that it'll start selling the telephone in February, there is however no word on pricing yet.
Announced by Sony recently, the Sony Xperia E will be the latest midrange addition for Sony's Xperia lineup, since the Japanese phone maker continues to move far away from a hero strategy.
The specs of the Sony Xperia E will arrive using a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 3.5in 480x320 touchscreen, running Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system.
This phone clearly aiming at those who wouldn't like a flashy Android phone, the Sony Xperia E also has a 3.2MP rear-facing camera, no front-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, a 1530mAh battery and Sony's usual mobile software including Walkman apps and it is Timescape user interface.
Sony plans to start selling its flagship Xperia Z phone through a U.S. carrier shortly; increased marketing efforts should help things, Sony CEO Hirai said.
Xperia Z managed to be the top-selling phone for six weeks straight in a highly competitive, which's Japan
Neither Sony nor T-Mobile are giving any hint as to when the expected launch would take place, but we would hope soon considering that the Xperia Z has been available internationally for a few months now. It's good to see that Sony is still willing to put in the effort to sell devices to the U.S. market, especially after some serious price drops in its Xperia ZL handset being sold unlocked here.
Sony may have shipped more than 4 million Xperia Z units around the world (as of April). Kaz Hirai did say that sales were going well, but didn't provide exact numbers. In any case, it's clear that there's demand for high-end waterproof smartphones - and this is why Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S4 Active in the near future.

HTC just sent out word via Twitter that the HTC One will not be delivered to Verizon. It can be recalled that components for its camera have been very limited and that HTC One deliveries will actually be delayed as a result. On the other hand, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will all get their limited shares of units and will possibly receive their shipment this month. There is no exact date of release yet.
In place of the HTC One, Verizon recommends users to get the DROID DNA with its quad core Snapdragon chip and 5-inch display. Furthermore, it will conveniently receive the latest Jelly Bean roll out and the HTC Sense 5.0 interface similar to the HTC One. However, not everyone likes the way DROID DNA looks compared to the One. It seems like HTC is doing all it can for damage control.

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 expected to be released at the end of this month, we aren't suprised at all that Galaxy S3 price has been dropped to $99 with 2 year contract.
It's actually a common practice for cellular carriers, manufacturers and retailers to drop the prices of older devices leading up to a big product launch. This allows them to sell as much inventory as possible to those who would prefer a better deal as opposed to newer device.
So will you buy the low priced Samsung Galaxy S3 or wait for the Galaxy S4, it's only $100 more.
Just in time for school, Galaxy S 4 is available from Sprint in three colors: Black Mist, White Frost and the beautiful Purple Mirage, for $199.99 (excluding taxes) with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement.
The award-winning Galaxy S 4 is powered by AndroidTM 4.2.2, Jelly Bean, and boasts a brilliant 5-inch full HD Super AMOLEDTM touchscreen, 1.9GHz quad-core processor and access to the Sprint 4G LTE network. It also offers Multi Window, which allows the use of two apps side-by-side.
Galaxy S 4 features dual cameras: a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera with a Dual Camera function that allows simultaneous use of both cameras. To make it easier to share those important moments, it also includes these
• Drama Shot captures a progressive event, like a baby's first steps or a basketball player's slam dunk, in one frame.
• Eraser Shot removes unwanted objects or people from an otherwise perfect picture.
• Live Filters allow an individual to see how a picture will look - on both the camera and camcorder - before the photo is taken.
Galaxy S 4 adds new touchless navigation with innovative features that detect face, voice and motions to enable screen control.

You could tell whenever a Nokia phone is coming when @evleaks tweets about this. Today he's done exactly that using the approaching Lumia 525, a follow up towards the uber popular Lumia 520. We haven't seen a lot of photos from the Lumia 525 until these last couple of days. According to usual, the photo from @evleaks is really a press render from Nokia.
The press render provides for us a obvious look of the Lumia 525 design. It appears a little thinner compared to 520 with sharper curved edges. We are able to also observe that the red-colored, yellow, and whitened colors are glossy rather than the matte finish located on the 520. Rumored specs for that Lumia 525 incorporate a dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, along with a 5MP camera. It's also stated to possess a concentrate on music, but we're unsure what which means.
@evleaks also mentions this phone is going to be arriving 2013. If you are searching for a minimal-cost Home windows Phone device this is someone to watch out for this holidays.
Google + is getting updated very soon and expect to see additions and improvements with some of its features such as photo features, community controls and a way to customize the timeline. Apple and Android users will definitely have fun with these new and better features.
Community posts that show on the timeline can now be customized so that only those that were selected will be displayed on your page. Re-sharing is now also possible as well as sending out invites to people whom you want to be connected with socially.
Another good addition is the ability to remove and report community members whom you think are just trolling around-but with the consent of the administrators.
Other additions are increased number of text lines and directly accessing links that are seen on your page. Furthermore, Apple users will be able to enjoy Snapseed, which they can use to edit photos and implement edits such as cropping, filtering and rotating. The Android users, however, will have to wait until Mountain View releases an update to go with the new Google +.
What's in this version:
- New stream design (including comment previews and swiping through photo albums inline)
- Control the volume of posts that you see in your stream from individual circles/communities
- New app setup flow
- Filter search results by best or most recent
- Tell others about a community (by sharing it or sending an invitation)
- Re-share posts to communities
- Share your current location on your profile and control who can see it via G+ settings
The unofficial Google Operating System blog recently discovered the new feature mentioned in a series of code. Google Now is currently only available on Android smartphones and tablets running version 4.1 or later, and is rumored to be heading to iOS and Chrome in the near future.
"Get started with Google Now. Just the right information at just the right time." That's how Google introduces the new feature. "Google Now uses your Home location to show relevant information like weather, traffic conditions, and nearby places," explains Google. You can edit the home location, work location and the current location. Another feature lets you track your favorite stocks.
