A new version of the Galaxy S Device Code named "Altius" will be announced at Mobile World Congress, that's 100% confirmed by SamMobile's insiders. The Samsung Altius will come in two colors (black and white). Samsung is planning to ship the Altius starting from week 16, which simply means April 15. We expect Samsung to hold an unpacked event at MWC or sometime in March. Samsung could hold one of its mobile unpacked events in London, New York or maybe South Korea as well.

 

We had rumors last week about Wireless charging capabilities and it's for real. Samsung will make the wireless charging kit available a couple of weeks later after bringing the device itself on sale. The back cover with wireless charging indicates that the next generation Galaxy S device will have a removable back cover, just like company's current flagship device the Galaxy S III.

 

100% confirmed specs below:

 

Code Name: Altius
Model Number: GT-I9500
Colours: Black / White
Battery Capacity: 2600 mAh

Imangi Studios has launched a free, ad-supported version of its updated Temple Run 2 game on Google Play for Android users. Until recently, the popular "infinite runner" game was exclusive to iOS devices.


Temple Run 2 features a glitzy, vibrant feel in addition to a generally busier milieu and a new mine cart level.


Previously, the mine cart level was used as the definitive mark of disgrace in a video game. As times change, the standard has been lowered by all this informal trash.


For now, we'll settle for the amazing Super Hexagon until we are totally irritated. For those who prefer informalities, Android Temple Run 2 is here.
