A few hours later by the spread of rumors on the Web that Samsung have decided to halt production of the 64GB version of the Galaxy S III, came the blunt denial by the same Korean manufacturer.
A spokesman for the Korean company contacted by the staff at Android Central, and confirms that the Samsung Galaxy S III 64GB version will come on the market in the second half of 2012. However, there is no word on which countries the device will be marketed.
At this point, those who want just the bigger version of the Samsung Galaxy S III have nothing to do, but wait for information on the date of launch and the markets where it will be available. Sooner or later, the device will come.
New suspected problems may afflict some owners of Samsung Galaxy S III. After the failure of cracks that appeared in the back cover, it is regretted by many users in recent weeks. In fact, another part of the device would be small in some cases subject to breakage.
According to images posted by users of the Dutch site, tweakers.net, it would be formed of small cracks in the metal frame of several devices of the Samsung Galaxy S III.
To tell the users that have published the photos, these cracks are not the result of a fall of the device, a shock or a bad case. It remains to be evaluated, of course, what the real issue of the terminals was and if indeed these were not actually victims of minor accidents.
However, Samsung has not released an official comment. We will keep you informed of developments.
Android does not only reign in the Europe area, but also in the USA, This is what emerged from the statistics made by the analyst firm, Nielsen.
Android is the platform preferred by the Americans, and about 51.8% have an Android smartphone and 54.6% have purchased a home with the little robot from Google over the past 3 months. This data was taken before the release of the Samsung Galaxy S III.
As what has happened in Italy and the USA, more than half the population use Android, but the remaining is divided among iPhone, BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Phone. Android is surely the undisputed king of smartphones at this time. Android is an open source operating system, unlike the others, so you can change any device, install any APP, hack up and customize it in every way. Unlike the iPhone, you’ll need to jailbreak it, as well as other devices that can not be changed even.
What most people seek is the ability to do anything with the smartphone. Others seek an intuitive smartphone, cheap, maybe even physically beautiful and light. Well, Android has all these features. There are numerous Android devices on the market that are cheap, expensive, professional, amateur, with old and new versions.
Obviously, tastes are always tastes. There are users who opt for LG, Samsung or Sony, but the OS is always, and only Android.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the Android world is the ability of developers that revolve around this operating system, make the porting of content from one smartphone to another.
And the case of what happened recently with the Samsung Galaxy S III, was made to launch Nature’s TouchWiz UX on other smartphones based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. And so, after porting the user interface to the HTC Sense 4.0, came the turn of the one built by Samsung.
According to the disclosure by the developer porting’s author, they are already supporting multiple terminals.
According to the official thread on XDA-Developers about porting, they remind you that the installation of ROM and content through unofficial channels is a dangerous operation that may damage the terminal and cause the loss of the guarantee offered by the manufacturer.
As some of you may know, Samsung today launched a version of the Galaxy S III LTE in their home country, South Korea. Unlike LTE-capable S III which was released in the U.S. and Canada, the Korean version comes with a quad-core processor (Exynos, typical of Samsung).
Samsung has revealed that the S III LTE has achieved record sales in its first day of availability in Korea. There were 50,000 units sold through the three Korean companies. That’s a lot compared to sales for the first day of the previous models Galaxy. There were 10,000 units for the Galaxy S and 24,000 units for the Galaxy S II.
Samsung expects to sell over 10 million Galaxy S III phones worldwide by the end of July. And, they are very likely to achieve that goal.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is invading all world markets. In America, the distributed model is equipped with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 and LTE, while in Europe, it came with a quad-core processor with 1 GB of RAM, but no support for 4G.
Now, it is the time of the commercial launch in its native Korea, and this is another variant of the model. The Galaxy S III comes with Korean Exynos quad core processor and 2GB of RAM. In addition, the product also supports LTE and DMB TV tuner, which is a popular feature in the East.
Other similar characteristics of the device with other markets is the 4.8-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 2.0 (MHL), NFC, 8 megapixel camera and battery by 2.100mAh.
The debut is scheduled on the 9th of July and will be distributed through operators, SK Telecom, KT and LG U +.
The version of the Samsung Galaxy S III with 2GB of RAM , LTE support and Exynos quad-core processor will make its debut on the market by Monday, July 9, in South Korea.
The announcement came from the same Asian manufacturer. They also mentioned that the smartphone will be marketed by operators, SKT, KT and LG U +.
Recall that this variant of the flagship of Samsung is not particularly new, compared to what was found in Italy, except, of course, for the amount of RAM, support for the LTE and TV T-DMB, as well as a thickness that is slightly greater (by passing 8.6 mm to 9mm).
The other main features of the terminal include a 4.8-inch display with HD resolution, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the TouchWiz UX Nature user interface, an 8 megapixel camera, NFC, 32GB of memory and a battery of 2,100 mAh.
Samsung has launched the release of a new firmware update for the Galaxy S III—trying to fulfill the request of users who complain about the presence of bugs.
It is in fact, a minor update aimed mainly at improving the overall stability of the smartphone and fix some bugs found in previous releases. The update weighs 72.68 MB and can be downloaded and installed via OTA directly to the smartphone.
Among the innovations introduced by the update, stands in the dropdown menu to add a notification bar that allows you to adjust the brightness of the display or set the automatic control.
To the first users that have tested the update, it does not seem to be no other news worth mentioning. The staff of the Webzine SlashGear, in particular, noted that the terminal is still somewhat slow to reload the widget from an application.
Samsung has recently announced that it will communicate as soon as possible to the Galaxy series terminals to upgrade to Jelly Bean, in addition to the brand new Galaxy S III, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S. It is these terminals that will definitely upgradeable to Jelly Bean.
The answer is decidedly uncertain, and on the network, begins to circulate the first hypothesis that terrorized a good part of the users of the Samsung Galaxy S II. They have begun to circulate on the network the first hypothesis that the selling terminal is ”top class” of 2011 and Samung is excluded from this “minor” update. The assumptions are quite absurd: it would require a quad-core processor, a display with a resolution of at least 1280 × 8720 and fewer than 2 GB of RAM.
The reasons are absolutely incredible if we think that the Nexus S uses a single core 1 ghz processor, 512 MB of RAM and a display of 800 × 480, with exactly the same resolution of the Galaxy S II. The S II hardware is slightly less than that given equipped with a dual core processor with 1.2 GHz and 1 GB of RAM. Why is then this terminal should not be upgraded to Android Jelly Bean?
The reasons could be many and are of a more commercial example is the launch of a Galaxy S III plus with a RAM of 2 GB. Google has pushed just to have a good performance with “Project Butter” and Samsung for the new Touchwiz, which will require 2 GB of RAM. It is very improbable and incredible, even at the conceptual level.
Somehow, you can still use and install Android Jelly Bean on Galaxy S II through special ROM (a port has already been carried out starting from the firmware for the Galaxy Nexus), but not all users are able to install various custom firmware. Personally, a Galaxy S II owner would remain quite disappointed to be excluded by the update to Android 4.1, as we are faced with a smaller update that does not require large and particular specifications, and especially before the 18 months to support hardware and software to be guaranteed by Google and Samsung.
The battle of the quad-core smartphone is designed to ignite. In fact, the LG Optimus 4X HD has already arrived in Europe.
LG announces the imminent arrival of the Optimus 4X HD— its new flagship Android smartphone—in eleven European markets. Among the countries that will first welcome the device are Italy, Germany, United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Sweden.
Presented last February at the Mobile World Congress 2012, the LG Optimus 4X HD is animated by a quad-core 1.5 GHz NVIDIA Tegra-based platform 3 and can rely on the combination of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and the new user interface is the Optimus UI 3.0.
Among the other features of the LG Optimus 4X HD are LCD True HD IPS 4.7-inch with 1280 x 720 pixels, an 8 megapixel camera, a thickness of 8.9 mm and a 2,150 mAh battery.
A smartphone that is to align the top range of other manufacturers like HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. Compared to the two direct competitors, however, the LG Optimus 4X HD should have from it, a more competitive price.
Samsung recently announced its new smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S III. The Samsung Galaxy S III possesses a Quad-core, Android 4.0, and an 8 megapixel camera, which is definitely better than the Nexus, which has 5 megapixels.
The device has 4.8 inches screen with Super AMOLED technology and 4G connection. This device weighs just 133 grams and 0.86 cm thick.
The Samsung Galaxy SIII will begin to be sold in the next few weeks in Europe and the USA. IT will also hit Brazil in June.
