Yesterday we posted that Samsung’s own CEO confirmed the existence of a mirrorless Galaxy Camera 2 that will be unveiled on June 20th. Much to my surprise, it looks like Samsung isn’t done as several leaked photos of another camera has surfaced. This one is called the Samsung Galaxy NX and is rumored to have a APS-C 20.3 Megapixel sensor, 1080p HD recording, a 4.8” HD display with Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad-Core processor, 2GB of RAM and options of 8 or 16 GB’s of internal storage. Definitely high end specs for a camera.
More screenshots of HTC’s upcoming Butterfly S device have surfaced and confirms that the all popular “BoomSound” feature will be on the device. While nothing else is rumored about the phone, we should expect it to have at least a 5-inch screen considering the first Butterfly was just that. We can also expect the Butterfly S to have the same features as it’s HTC One brother with the likes of BlinkFeed, an Ultra pixel camera, and Sense 5.0. As for hardware, this device will most likely don the Snapdragon 600 processor along with 2GB’s of RAM.
Yup, it finally looks like Sony is finally about to reveal its next great device for the masses, the Xperia Z Ultra— which is a larger-scale smartphone set to compete with the likes of the Optimus G Pro and Galaxy Note smartphones. How certain are we, you ask? Well— a nice press invite has gone out from the fine folks from Sony Mobile France highlighting “Sony Mobile reserves a big surprise for you” on July 4th. Moreover, the same invite encourages folks to “not forget to mark your calendars! “, all the while using a nice stylus-type pen to handwrite the note. So yes friends, all that’s left to do is wait for Sony to finally confirm the arrival of the device featuring a 6.44-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, potential waterproof capabilities and Android 4.2.

Samsung has released a three minute clip demoing their newly announced Galaxy S 4 Zoom, and in traditional Samsung marketing fashion, the video highlights how an average person would use all the
gimmicky features on a day to day basis. The video follows a smiling woman around who makes a phone call on her digital camera, uses the optical zoom on the camera, shares photos, etc. It’s nothing really new compared to what we already know, but this is Samsung’s way of wrapping up all of the Zoom’s features in a small package.
Hit the break below to check out the video, and let us know in the comments what you think. Niche product or next big thing?
Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 is no doubt a smash hit despite those lowered expectations, but its leader took some time recently to tout just how much of a hit the new smartphone has been since its release last month. While not giving raw numbers, Sammy head J.K. Shin told Korean reporters that the smartphone has been “selling well”, pretty much refuting J.P. Morgan’s analysis. With Shin’s comments, the hope is that the Galaxy S 4 will hopefully sustain, if not gain positive momentum so that Sammy can continue to pull in the cheddar and all that good stuff.

Samsung already announced the Galaxy S 4 Active last week and AT&T just announced plans to carry it. Those of you that want all the features that the Galaxy S 4 offers, but need something that can handle the many hazards in life, will want to check this one out. It’s IP67 certified to be water-resistant and dust-resistant. It has a 5-inch Full HD TFT LCD display, a 1.9GHz quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera, and Android 4.2.2. It will be available June 21 for $199. Hit the break for the full presser and demo video.
As the blogosphere complains about Samsung’s quality of materials, Samsung always fights back with the argument that their phones are not only light, but durable. Samsung set out to prove this theory with a little video showing you just how much the Galaxy S 4 can handle. This isn’t just a simple drop text folks. They not only drop it, but they also conduct a tumble test, impact test, sink test, temperature/humidity torture test, and they even show us what’s called a cover glass strength test. This video was produced by Samsung so it’s safe to assume that the GS4 performs very well. Hit the break to check it out.
While it was widely speculated, it’s now confirmed that the rumored HTC M4 is indeed the HTC One Mini. Seen alongside the HTC One above, the One Mini looks like an exact carbon copy of the One, just smaller of course. You can expect the One Mini to have a 4.3-inch display and while we don’t quite know the resolution or panel type of the screen, I’m assuming it’ll be a 720p S-LCD 2 or S-LCD 3 panel.
The One Mini will still have the nice aluminum body just like it’s big brother, but there will also be a plastic ring around the side. It also looses the IR blaster that the One has, but it looks like the BoomSound feature is still in tact. The One Mini will most likely have the same processor as the HTC First, a dual-core Snapdragon processor and will ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Stay tuned for more news on this device as it becomes available.
AT&T announced they will carry the Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE in the next couple of weeks. So far no news on how much it’ll cost but I’m sure one can estimate by looking at other similar tablets prices.
As for specs, we can expect the Note 8.0 to feature a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos 4410 CPU with 2GB of RAM and will ship with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI implemented of course. Will you be grabbing one?
Thanks to Samsung CEO Shin Jong-Kyun, we now know that their next iteration of their Galaxy Camera line, the Galaxy Camera 2, will be unveiled during their event on June 20th. The big splash thus far on what to expect on the Galaxy Camera 2 is that it’ll feature a mirrorless camera.
I am by far not knowledgeable enough when it comes to camera’s, but it seems as if this feature should make it smaller and lighter while still offering a good sensor. Once June 20th hits, we’ll be sure to update you on what else is expected on this camera. Stay tuned!
