So you thought the Asian onslaught of Android flip phones was a joke, huh? A passing fad, a whim, a bizarre eccentricity as many Westerners tend to describe Oriental customs they don’t get or resonate with.
Though the world’s first couple of smartphones to sport curved displays didn’t quite end up as flexible as we imagined all this time, the Samsung vs. LG duel is shaping up to be quite heated and interesting to the outside viewer.
Pantech unveils Vega Secret Note, a 5.9-inch Galaxy Note 3 contender with stylus and fingerprint scanner
Don’t look now, Samsung, but your reign of terror over the booming phablet market is about to end. Or at least be seriously challenged for a change, though Pantech’s spanking new Vega Secret Note is likely to keep it modest and only go for South Korean gold.
Are you a big fan of board games, but oldies like Scrabble or Monopoly don’t do it for you anymore? Fret not, as there’s a hot new game that I know will spice up your tedious evenings when the internet is down and the only thing interesting on TV is “Duck Dynasty”.
The new Nexus 7 is currently one of the best and most affordable 7-inch tablets in the Android ecosystem, and now the LTE-enabled variant has been launched by Google in eight new markets.
A Galaxy S4 Active variant powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor is in the news again, with a new report claiming the upgraded model will be launching in Korea next month.
Flip phones, or handhelds with clamshell designs, might be considered a thing of the (distant) past in America or Europe, but it appears they’re still in demand in parts of Asia. Or at least that’s what Samsung wants to think.
Right on schedule, Pantech has unveiled the Vega LTE-A, which is the company’s third top-notch smartphone to see daylight in 2013, following on the footsteps of the massive Vega No 6 and the very sleek-looking Vega Iron.
In spite of a rumor bonanza that has started many months ago, you can still count the number of official Snapdragon 800-powered devices on one hand. Not to mention that technically there’s only one such gadget people can score – the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A in Korea.
Here’s a nutty idea of blending the past and future of mobile tech – putting Android on a flip phone. You know, the kind of handhelds that everyone owned or dreamed of owning a half a decade ago. Just with Android on top of it all.
Samsung continues its selling streak, despite introducing nearly a dozen models of a single phone, with their most recent Galaxy S4 iteration, the Galaxy S4 LTE Advanced model powered by the Snapdragon 800 SoC and being sold exclusively in Korea.
D-Day is approaching fast for LG, who will probably look to introduce the company’s next flagship, the G2, on August 7 in New York. I know, you must be a little confused by LG’s haste to already rehash the Optimus G Pro, only the G2 should be much more than a rehash.
Samsung is on pace to once again break a company record for investing in research and development, as it has been reported that the South Korean tech giant will pour about $4.5 (USD) billion into constructing five more innovation centers on Korean soil.
Well, well, well, what have we here? Could it be further proof the Samsung Galaxy S4 variant supporting LTE-Advanced and packing a Snapdragon 800 chip is real? Why, yes, it is.
The Galaxy S4 is getting yet another variant known as the LTE-A and the specs will surely make your new Galaxy S4 feel at least somewhat old.
LG may have never had a strong reputation in the Western mobile décor, but locally the Optimus makers have always been a threat for the likes of Samsung or Apple. Need proof? How about if I told you Optimus G Pro sales have already topped 1 million units in Korea?
