Samsung outs Sprint's Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch ahead of tonight's event

84

Safe to say this one's official now, folks. Samsung's Mobile Product site has outed the Sprint Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch -- the SGSIIE4T, for short.

A couple of specs appear to be official confirmed as well -- a 4.52-inch (no mere 4.5-incher here) Super AMOLED Plus display in an "ultra thin" design. There's 4G Wimax data, natch, and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. We'll have to see what this "advanced Android experience" is -- typically that'd be something that comes along with its very own Android nerd.

Anyhoo, be sure to stop by our liveblog tonight as we bring you all the dirty details, live. And on a blog. We've got a couple more pics after the break, one of which might show you what that "advanced Android experience" is about, with a new-look app drawer.

Rogers bringing the LTE equipped Samsung Galaxy S II to Canada

12

With Samsung having now officially announced the LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, Rogers in Canada has wasted no time in letting folks know they will be one of the first carriers with the device. While Rogers LTE coverage at this point is still rather limited, come Sept 28 it will be expanding;

Customers in Toronto and Ottawa can be among the first in the world to experience LTE wireless devices when the company continues to roll out its LTE product line this fall.  It includes:  the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE Smartphone; the LTE Rocket mobile hotspot (Sierra Wireless AirCard 754S); Rogers LTE Rocket stick (now available in Ottawa); LTE Tablet from a leading manufacturer; and the previously announced HTC Smartphone.

No pricing details were announced yet but it looks as though Rogers will be bringing a lot of good equipment to those who live in their LTE enabled area. Sadly, I'm not one of them as of yet.

Motorola Pro+ announced, coming to Asia and Europe starting in October

12

While the Droid Pro never made it to the UK under any other name, Motorola is making sure the Motorola Pro+ makes it there. The freshly announced device is a rather obvious follow up for that line but not to be mistaken for the Motorola Fire we saw recently. Rather then the 2.1-inch screen from the Fire, the Pro+ will offer up a 3.1-inch Gorilla Glass screen. Other specs include Android 2.3, 5MP camera, 1GHz Processor and a 1600mAh battery. Full details can be found past the break.

Motorola DEFY+ slated for UK release this September

2

Motorola's recently announced DEFY+ will be making its way to British shores sometime next month, according to a press release by Moto's UK division. The DEFY+ is a beefed up version of the original DEFY -- you get a 1GHz CPU (up from 800MHz), Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a higher resolution screen inside a similarly rugged, waterproof chassis.

No word on which UK networks will be getting the DEFY+ just yet. However Orange and T-Mobile (aka Everything Everywhere) are a good bet, considering they've been quick to pick up Motorola devices like the Atrix and the original DEFY in the past.

If reading press releases is your thing, you can find Moto's DEFY+ UK presser after the jump.

LG bringing 3D conversion engine to IFA, worthwhile boost to its flagship?

8

 

So one of the biggest problems befalling 3D devices like the Optimus 3D -- and all (erm, both) 3D phones at the moment -- is the lack of 3D content right? Well, LG is making a play to change all that at the upcoming IFA 2011 show in Germany, by showing off for the first time their Open-GL based 3D game converter software ahead of its inclusion in the first Maintenance Release for the phone in October.

The idea is simple. The software allows existing 2D games that have been made compatible to be played in 3D, and around 50 titles will get a full 3D makeover. Unsupported games can be manually tweaked to achieve the desired effect. 

LG are expecting 50 titles to be fully optimized in October, with another 50 being added before 2011 is out. Many still aren't convinced by 3D phones, but LG is determined to make it less of a gimmick.The question still remains as to how successful it will be in convincing consumers to buy their flagship device.

See the full press release after the break.

LG releases Optimus S Gingerbread source, no sign of the update just yet

4

LG has released the Kernel source and assorted GPL bits for the Gingerbread build on their Optimus S device.  No reports of anything showing in the LG updater tool just yet, and rumor says mid-September for an OTA.  For now, this just means that our resident Optimus warlords (yes, they have transcended developer status) have some new code to play with and see if they can improve the Gingerbread builds they have had running for the Optimus S for quite a while.  Realistically, there will be a few things here of value for all Optimus developers, who have been forced to use hacks and work arounds for some of the closed-source functionality from LG.  With this new codebase, expect your favorite Gingerbread ROM for the Optimus S to get even better.

AT&T, on Twitter, confirms the Thrill 4G is coming Sept. 4

12

Confirming news we broke two weeks ago, AT&T has announced on Twitter that the Thrill 4G (aka the Optimus 3D) will be available on Sept. 4. We've basically reviewed this thing every way possible in its unbranded form (see our first review, and our European take as well), and we took another look at AT&T's version a couple months ago. Still no price, but word around the campfire is it'll run about $100.

The Droid Prime -- Just as Uncle Jerry predicted?

51

Who needs anonymous sources when you've got a witch like Jerry Hildenbrand? Here, in his own words, from last week's Android Central Podcast, is Jerry predicting a Nexus-caliber smartphone with Droid branding. Or, maybe Jerry and those anonymous sources are all wrong.

Motorola Milestone 3 heading to Brazil Aug. 29, six other Latin American nations by October

1

Motorola has announced that the Milestone 3 will be available for customers in Brazil starting Aug. 29.  As we've seen in the past, Motorola Milestone devices are copies of their Verizon counterparts, minus the America-centric CDMA radio and Verizon Droid branding.  Like the Motorola Droid 3, the Milestone is no slouch when it comes to specifications:

  • Dual-core OMAP4 CPU at 1GHz
  • 4-inch qHD display
  • 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p capture, front camera for video conferencing
  • 16GB internal memory
  • Android 2.3

Also included are Motorola's comprehensive set of business features, like GAL lookup, remote document access, data encryption, and remote wipe.  And we can't forget the five-row QWERTY packed onto this one, one of the best Motorola has offered thus far.  The Milestone 3 should be a hit with Android fans in Brazil, and in six other Latin American nations by October.  Read the full press release after the break.

LG VS920 skates through the FCC, could it be the Revolution 2?

5

The LG VS920 has just received FCC certification, and we're pretty sure we're looking at the LG Revolution 2.  We first heard that it would be coming along to replace the Revolution in that leaked roadmap we saw early in August, and since the Revolution is the VS910, it's not that much of a leap to call the VS920 the Revolution 2.  What we didn't know, and makes us happy all at the same time, as that this appears to be a world phone with CDMA, LTE, and GSM bands just like the Droid Pro. 

The rumor said we'll be seeing this one on or around Oct. 20, and the FCC certification lines up well with that timeline.  We'll just have to wait and see.
