Samsung Galaxy S II, to Compete iPhone 5

Written on August 29, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Samsung gave a hint that their upgraded Galaxy S II will include 1.5GHz Exynos dual-core processor to compete against iPhone 5.

Samsung has tipped its hand early on some of its plans for their smartphone with an early Korean unveiling of the newly upgraded Galaxy S II. The new Galaxy S II LTE is packed with 4G, a larger 4.5 inch screen, and an even faster 1.5GHz Exynos dual-core processor. It also features NFC wireless and a larger 1,850mAH battery.

Samsung also claimed that the Galaxy Tab 8.9’s month-delayed launch is also rewarding buyers for the wait. Along with the LTE, the tablet would get the same 1.5GHz dual-core chips and ships with Android 3.2. Despite its smaller screen, it should still measure 8.6mm thick like the Tab 10.1.

Verizon Wireless Won’t Release a Samsung Galaxy S II Variant

Written on August 27, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Sources close to the company claimed that Verizon will not launch the Samsung Galaxy S II for their network.

Samsung has just confirmed that it will not launch the anticipated Galaxy S II smartphone on Verizon Wireless. Sources have hinted that the manufacturer will soon publicize this announcement, and would state that the device would only be released on other major wireless carriers — including AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

Up to now, it is still vague why the two companies have decided not to work together, even after Samsung’s Droid Charge has appeared on Verizon last May.

Samsung has indeed attained the highest sales rate in the smartphone market in 2010, comprising almost 13% of all the smartphone sales. However, having the lack of partnership with Verizon and the fact that Samsung is facing certain preliminary injunction issues from Apple, the growth of their future devices might be affected.

The Samsung Galaxy S II had already sold over 5 million units in just 85 days after its launching in Europe, Australia, and Asia. The Sprint version of the smartphone will then be available for $199 with a two-year contract.

Rumor: Sprint to Offer Apple’s iPhone 5 in October

Written on August 24, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

WSJ claims that Sprint, along with AT&T and Verizon, will be offering the iPhone 5 in mid-October.

Whether it’s real or just another rumor, this report would certainly catch the attention of most iPhone consumers. The Wall Street Journal had recently announced that Sprint will offer the 5th-generation iPhone once it has been released in “mid-October”, making it the third U.S. carrier to sell the iPhone 5, following AT&T and Verizon.

Sprint, one of the nation’s largest wireless service provider, is said to be the third to receive the anticipated device after Apple launched with AT&T in 2007 and with Verizon this year. Perhaps this is a good way to save the company from being left behind by Verizon and AT&T/T-Mobile’s merging.

Take note that although this would be the fixed pricing for the devices, some US carriers still plans to offer the phones for $50 more on average.
