April 26: Samsung Galaxy S Advance day

Samsung just loves confusing the hell out of everyone with slight variations of its smartphones. Heck, at Mobile World Congress we met the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. Sigh.

Now we’re hearing that the Samsung Galaxy S Advance, first leaked back in January, is arriving in the UK next week. Hu…zzah?

Samsung Jigs in 45 Countries

Samsung Jigs in 45 Countries

Joe Hindy  Mar. 2, 2012 at 11:30

The Samsung jig is one of those accessories that everyone should not only know about, but everyone should have unbridled access to. They can do magical things to Samsung devices, like force them into Download or Odin Mode so users can flash stock firmware and unbrick their Samsung phones. On some, they remove a certain disgusting yellow triangle from several Samsung phones that have them. But unfortunately for some people, Samsung jigs are only available online and that presents a very big problem for those without PayPal accounts, bank accounts or debit cards.

Just because someone may have an understandable distrust for things like banks and online money mediating services, such as PayPal, doesn't mean that they don't deserve help when they need it. That is the premise for a list that has been compiled where volunteers give up their names and locations so anyone in their area can swing by and use their USB jig free of charge.

What do you mean Samsung is saturating the market with an endless stream of painfully similar Galaxy products? Choo crazy, mang.

The Samsung Galaxy S Advance was rumoured a few weeks ago, and quickly followed by an official press release, and now Sammo has brought a handful along to Mobile World Congress.

Samsung Galaxy S Advance leaked

With the Samsung Galaxy S Plus, Sammo essentially took the original Galaxy S and flung in a 1.4GHz processor. Now it’s going one step further with the Samsung Galaxy S Advance.

According to GSM Arena, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance will close the gap on its big brother – the Samsung Galaxy S II – with a 1GHz dual-core processor.

Apple and Samsung considering waterproof smartphone tech

HZO popped along to CES in Las Vegas last week to show off its Waterblock Technology stuff, and some of the big boys were reportedly rather impressed.

Indeed, all going well for the HZO chaps, this is the kind of thing we could find being the norm in the next wave of high-end smartphones.

Samsung: full Ice Cream Sandwich definitely not coming to Galaxy S or Galaxy Tab

Samsung: full Ice Cream Sandwich definitely not coming to Galaxy S or Galaxy Tab

There’s still a fair bit of confusion concerning which devices will get Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and when, but Samsung deserves a special mention for making an absolute meal of things with the Galaxy S.

First Samsung said that Ice Cream Sandwich wasn’t a possibility for the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab, citing TouchWiz and memory restrictions, then it said it was having second thoughts before announcing a “Value Pack”. Phew.

Samsung Galaxy S III to be Galaxy S 3D?

Samsung Galaxy S III to be Galaxy S 3D?

Samsung still hasn’t made anything official, but we’re fully expecting the Samsung Galaxy S III to touch down at February’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

That’s exactly what Korea’s ETNews is bawling, and it’s also speculating about the, uhm, specs. See what I did there? Sorry.

Rejoice, Samsung Galaxy S users: your Value Pack is on its way

Rejoice, Samsung Galaxy S users: your Value Pack is on its way

Mobile news can move pretty fast, but there's enough of it out there that we seldom write two stories updating developments on the same subject on the same day.

But such has been the PR fiasco surrounding Samsung's very public debate over whether to produce an Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S that we're happy to break our normal practice.

Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab after all?

Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab after all?

Lewis Curdie  Dec. 28, 2011 at 12:00

South Korea’s favourite son, Samsung, recently announced the Sammo devices that are confirmed for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) action, but there were two notable omissions – namely the original Samsung Galaxy S and 7in Samsung Galaxy Tab.

As one might’ve expected, in the days following the announcement, Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab owners wept openly before Samsung’s feet, and resultantly the manufacturer is said to be considering a cheeky u-turn on its previous statement.
