Samsung

Samsung has been leading the global charge to put an Android phone into everyone's hands, and if we're to believe some specs listed by Mobili Linija, an online retail shop from Lithuania, we have a slew of new models with some great specs coming.  They have listed details for seven new phones and two new tablets, with the words dual-core and Super AMOLED thrown around liberally.  Hit the break to see the list, and a bit 'o commentary.

We'll start things off with a handful of Android smartphones rumored to be in production.  They range from the mundane in the GT-B5510, to the unbelievable in the GT-i9250.  More on that unbelievable part in a bit.

GT-B5510

  • 2.8 inch display

GT-i9250

  • 5MP camera
  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich

We also have a couple of tablets with interesting specs getting thrown into the mix.  It looks to be the same model in 3G/4G and Wifi only versions:

P6200

  • Honeycomb
  • 7 inch Super AMOLED 1024 x 600 display
  • 3MP rear camera, 2MP front camera
  • HSPDA


P6210

  • Honeycomb
  • 7 inch Super AMOLED 1024 x 600 display
  • 3MP rear camera, 2MP front camera
  • Wifi

For the most part, this looks like it could very well be a list of what's coming from Samsung, with a few minor facts missing or incorrect -- as they always are when dealing with leaked info.  Notably, the Super AMOLED displays at 720p and 4.3- to 4.65-inch sizes.  According to the folks who know all about this stuff at Oled-info, using current technology it's impossible to get that resolution on a Super AMOLED display under 7 inches in size.  The machinery that "prints" the screens just can't manufacture them with a dpi that high.  That doesn't mean that Samsung isn't working on it (as a matter of fact, they are), but I think if they have perfected the new method we would have all seen a press release, or a party in Times Square.  It's also possible that these are projected specs, and some of these phones are a good ways off. 

The tablets, on the other hand, look completely doable, and delicious all at the same time.  A seven inch form factor with a Super AMOLED display is something we haven't seen yet in the Android tablet world, and many folks are just waiting to buy one.  Make them thin, please.  And try not to get sued.

All their good phones have tablet sized screens, unfortunately. Personally, I like 4" or smaller.

I personally prefer larger displays 4.5" is what I want...but not everyone is looking for 4.3+ screens, it would be nice if they made some sub 4" phones with high end specs

Cool. Maybe by the time I'm up for a new tablet, there will be another compelling 7" offering on Sprint.

Yes it's dubbed the GT-I9220 (W43). it will have Android 2.3.3 and will feature the world’s first Super AMOLED Plus HD display at 4.3 inches, with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Sports a powerful 1.4 Ghz dual core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera

The next Nexus will have ICS, and if it did have GB it would be 2.3.4 or 2.3.5... not sub-latest issue.

I guess we all love high speced phones but as a mechanic i would love to see a durable Samsung like the Motorola Defy, hope they will make one soon i need to exchange my Galaxy Mini

Not one 4" phone? That's a bit disappointing. I mean there is a 3.7" but doesn't have the specs of the 4.3"+ phones. And a 4.65" phone? Who wants to carry that around? Maybe I'm just too used to my 4" Captivate at this point, but I think it is plenty big for a phone. I thought it was too big when I first got it but am used to it now. Maybe I'd get used to a 4.3" - but I'm a small person so I might look like an idiot talking on something so big haha.

ETA: why does Samsung keep making phones without flash? My LG Shine from 2008 had an led flash on it! I realize it's a phone first, but almost every high-end, even mid-range smartphones have flashes on them.

I'm looking forward to seeing how that 4.65" phone feels in my hand before I judge it. Can't imagine the phone would get good battery life, though.

Didn't notice the lack of flash for the cameras. No flash - no sale. Ty for pointing it out.

Damn, my eyes weren't good enough to see the pixels on the Photon. Why would I want a 720P display under 5 inches? All you nerd-braggarts line up. 800px on the long edge is good enough for me.

I know you guys won't like this butttt

qHD >> SAMOLED mainly becuz SAMOLED looks oversaturated and has worse battery life
