Samsung New Galaxy Smartphone with 1.7GHz Exynos 5250 CPU

Samsung fans rejoice as the South Korean handset maker is about to launch another Galaxy smartphone, the GT-B9150.

Although the device cannot be put against the company's latest Android superphones, it still packs several good features that worth mentioning. First of all, the GT-B9150 will be powered by a 1.7 GHz dual core Exynos 5250 processor and an HD display that supports 1280 x 672 pixels (?). Secondly, the smartphone will be shipped with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

Unfortunately, these are the only specs that have been recently leaked several Japanese websites. Word is that this GT-B9150 will also pack a full QWERTY keyboard given the fact that Samsung usually puts this feature into its B series of phones. via SAMMobile and GLBenchmark.

RIM Suggests that BlackBerry 10 Will Change the Mobile Landscape

Canadian mobile phone maker Research In Motion is moving closer to the release of its BlackBerry 10 operating system, and the company is planning new events where to showcase the platform.

One of these will gather Canada’s officials who are interested in learning more on the OS that, according to RIM, will change everything. The company has been long touting the outstanding features of the upcoming operating system version, yet it hasn’t provided us with too many details on what to expect from it or from the devices that will be powered by it. “Join us for an exclusive cocktail reception and presentation of BlackBerry 10 and get a sneak peek of the next generation mobile platform that will change everything,” the vendor notes on its website. “This session will provide an insider look at BlackBerry 10, the much anticipated new mobile computing platform from Research In Motion,” the company continues.

The event is set to take place at the Fairmont ChateĆ¢u Laurier in Ottawa on November 7, from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. Those who would like to attend should head over to this page on the company’s website to register.   RIM also notes that the new platform version will prove more responsive than previous releases, and that it will also provide users with increased productivity capabilities. “BlackBerry 10 is promising to be intuitive and extremely responsive, providing easy access to the critical apps, communications and functionality that are most important to each unique user,” RIM states.

“Attendees at this session will experience how BlackBerry 10 will ultimately increase productivity while empowering users to stay fluidly connected to all aspects of their life.” For those out of the loop, we should note that the BlackBerry OS is already praised for its security features, and that many enterprise and government users prefer it to rival solutions. However, many companies have started to move away from the platform lately, and analysts even believe that BlackBerry will soon be outpaced in the enterprise segment by Microsoft’s rising Windows Phone platform (by the upcoming Windows Phone 8 OS flavor, to be more precise).

Android 4.2-Based Manta Emerges in AnTuTu Benchmark Again

One of the devices expected to arrive on shelves with Google’s new Android 4.2 operating system on board is codenamed Manta and is said to be a tablet PC coming from Motorola.

Nothing has been officially confirmed on the device as of now, but it can already be seen in benchmarks out there, including AnTuTu, where it was spotted with an overall score of 8754. Available details on Manta include the fact that it will hit shelves with a 1.7GHz processor inside and with the new Android platform release loaded on it.

Hopefully, additional info on the tablet PC will become available as the official release of Android 4.2 approaches, though nothing is certain for the time being, and Manta will remain only on the rumor side for a while longer.

LG Nexus 4 Unveiled in New Leaked Photo

The first Nexus device from the South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics appears set to become official before the end of this month, and some more info on it has emerged online.

A leaked photo that surfaced over at Android Central provides us with the possibility to have a closer look at the internal circuitry of this mobile phone. Basically, the handset has been photographed without the back cover on, which unveiled the 2100 mAh battery packed inside it, and which is not user replaceable. The SIM slot cannot be seen in this photo, as it is, in fact, a microSIM tray placed on the right side of the new handset.

No further info on smartphone’s specs has been provided but, should rumors on it pan out, we might be able to learn more on it on October 29.
