Coming this April, BLU Products will have three new smartphones vying for your hard-earned dollar. The trio of dual-SIM handsets, known as the Life View, Life One and Life Play, will be sold unlocked on Amazon and will range in price between $ 229 and $ 299. As a nice touch, Android 4.2 will be common among the bunch, as will backside-illuminated sensors on the cameras and the quad-core, 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 (Cortex A7) SoC. Likewise, each smartphone will also feature an HD IPS display.
The Life View ($ 299), the largest of the bunch, includes a massive 5.7-inch display, a 12-megapixel rear / 5-megapixel front camera, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and a 2,600mAh battery. Meanwhile, the more reasonably sized Life One ($ 299) includes a 5-inch display, a 13-megapixel rear / 5-megapixel front camera, similar storage specs and a 2,000mAh battery. Lastly, the sleekest of the three, the Life Play ($ 229), includes a 4.7-inch display and measures 7.9mm thick. Here, you can expect to find an 8-megapixel rear / 2-megapixel front camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage and an 1,800mAh battery. You’ll find the band support for each of the three phones in the PR after the break, but needless to say, you’ll be safe on AT&T (and in many areas, T-Mobile).
ZTE has just introduced the Grand Memo flagship smartphone at MWC in Barcelona. The Grand Memo has top-shelf specs including a 5.7-inch 720×1280 TFT display, a quad-core Qualcomm 800 processor, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a front-facing camera for video chat.
ZTE is marketing this as its phablet experience, as competitors like Huawei, Samsung, and most recently Asus bet big on extra-large screens. Considering how much data and texting overpower our smartphone usage, it seems to be paying off.
Lenovo has announced new 7-inch and 10-inch tablets with quad-core processors and Google's latest Android 4.2 operating system, becoming one of the few companies to offer that version of the OS in tablets.
Archos may not be a main competitor in the tablet marketplace, but they’re doing whatever they can to become more relevant. Case in point: the company just outed three new tablets, all of which come with Retina-quality, high-resolution IPS displays and quad-core processors. The tablets come in 8-inch, 9.7-inch, and 11.6-inch flavors. Archos is calling
On Tuesday, we reported that Samsung had launched its Galaxy Grand handset, which features a low resolution 5-inch display and 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Now the company has announced another Galaxy Grand, this one featuring a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and LTE support. The handset is destined for South Korea. The South Korea-bound Galaxy Grand features a
After being unveiled at the close of 2012, yesterday Samsung announced the Galaxy Grand for its native South Korea. At a glance the domestic build of this handset looks nearly identical to its foreign counterpart, however the device’s spec sheet tells a different story. Opposed to a meager dual-core chip and faux 4G connectivity, the Korean version of the Galaxy Grand sports a beefy 1.4GHz processor, along with LTE network support. Additional unique features include NFC capabilities and USB 3.0. Aside from these hometown enhancements, the device’s 5-inch WVGA display, dual-cameras and Android 4.1 operating system remain intact. Set to be available on three unannounced Korean carriers at an undisclosed time, potential suitors can pick up this superior version of the Galaxy Grand for 350,000 won (around $ 325).

Today’s most mysterious combination of components to hit the mobile universe must be no less than the Hyundai T7 tablet, revealed with a Samsung Exynos 4 quad-core processor and a 7-inch display for just $ 166 USD. While at that price we’re certainly not confident this machine is going to run, it certainly does look enticing
Huawei’s just unveiled the Ascend G 615 (not to be confused with the G 520) in Germany, and it’s packing a 4.5-inch 720p IPS display and 1.4GHz quad-core processor for 299 euros. In addition to the silicon, 8GB of built-in storage, 1GB of RAM and a microSD slot hide behind the 330 ppi display. As for optics, the phone carries a 1.3-megapixel front-facing cam and an 8-megapixel shooter accompanied by a dual-LED flash, and records 1080p footage. In terms of connectivity, the device features support for WiFi, Bluetooth and pulling down 21Mbps over HSDPA. Next month, the G 615 will be served up in Germany with Ice Cream Sandwich onboard, but Huawei says the hardware will be updated to Jelly Bean at some point in March. There’s no word on a US release, but it’s expected to hit the road for a few international markets in short order. If Huawei’s latest offering strikes your fancy and you call Deutschland home, hit the source links for more details.

Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z announced: 1.5GHz quad-core, 10.1-inch 1,920 x 1,200 screen and 6.9mm thickness
Announced bright and early in Japan today is the Sony Xperia Tablet Z that we’ve been hearing about. As you’d expect, this 10.1-inch Android 4.1 tablet features the same design language as its smartphone counterpart, but it’s what’s inside that really sells this device: a Qualcomm 1.5GHz quad-core APQ8064 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, a 10.1-inch 1,920 x 1,200 screen (with Mobile Bravia Engine 2), an 8.1-megapixel Exmor R camera, NFC, LTE (MDM9215M radio), microSD expansion and Sony’s very own “S-Force” virtual surround sound technology. Amazingly, these are all packed tightly into a 6.9mm-thick, 495g-heavy body, and it’s both waterproof and dustproof. We’ll update you guys once we get hold of info on pricing and availability.

It was only a matter of time before ZTE came out with another device that would use the same design language as its much anticipated Grand S, so we weren’t at all surprised when this sister device popped up on the Chinese regulatory database. Like the aforementioned flagship, this upcoming V987 also sports a 5-inch gapless display, except it is capped at a 720p resolution. Naturally, the rest of the phone is built with a smaller budget in mind: the 13-megapixel camera is sized down to eight megapixels, and the original 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro is replaced by an unknown 1.2GHz quad-core chip (hopefully the MediaTek MT6589). That said, there’s dual-SIM support (WCDMA plus GSM) and a removable 2,500mAh battery — much bigger than the Grand S’ built-in 1,780mAh cell — here, so it’ll be interesting to see how well the V987 will outsell the Grand S.
An Ubuntu-powered tablet has appeared from DaVinci Mobile, an Italian company. The Kite features high-end specs that trump a lot of tablets on the market, with an HD display and quad-core processor. For those not thrilled about running Ubuntu, the tablet also runs Android, making it a dual-boot slate that meets your needs. Inside you’ll
Huawei put its best foot forward (twice) last week at CES, but it seems that the company has yet another smartphone up its sleeve: a 4.5-inch Android device known as the G520. According to Gizchina, the phone is said to wield a quad-core 1.2GHz Mediatek MT6589, but its key selling point will be the price — it’s said to be in the neighborhood of ￥1,399 ($ 225). The specific resolution of the G520 is currently known, and the same is true for the version of Android it’ll ship with. That said, Ice Cream Sandwich seems most plausible, as the smartphone includes just 512MB of RAM. The Huawei G520 also includes a 5-megapixel rear camera and is said to go up for sale on January 21st within China. Hopefully by then, we’ll know a bit more about this one.

Much like many Chinese smartphone brands these days, ZTE sub-brand Nubia had prematurely given away the main selling points of its Z5 ahead of its Beijing launch today, but there were still some surprises. As you probably already know, here’s yet another five-inch 1080p Android phone featuring Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz quad-core APQ8064, 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, along with a 13-megapixel F2.2 main camera (with five-element optics by Konica Minolta, plus separate touch focus and touch exposure in the app) and a two-megapixel front-facing camera. For multimedia consumption, the Z5 supports WiFi Display and MHL output should you wish to beam content to a larger screen; whereas on the audio side you are spoiled with either Yamaha or Dolby Digital Plus. But wait, there’s more!

We’re definitely not surprised that HTC is prepping another flagship smartphone for the coming year, but we’re starting to hear rumors and get a hold of some leaks to at least make sense of the new handset. HTC is rumored to be launching the M7 sometime in Q1 2013, and today, a few details have
It’s here, folks. The next generation of smartphone specs is arriving in the form of faster processors and larger displays. Popular Chinese brand Xiaomi is rumored to be releasing a smartphone with some crazy hardware. We’re talking a quad-core Tegra 4 chip, 2.5GB of RAM, and a 1080p display. We should be seeing devices like
Combining components on a single chip lowers the cost of manufacturing.
Taiwanese chip giant MediaTek today launched the world’s first quad-core “system on a chip” for smartphones. The new chip, the MT6589, is cheaper to manufacture—which will help lower the price of smartphone hardware globally.
Qualcomm is preparing two new quad-core processors for the mainstream smartphone market, with support for several Chinese standards.
Qualcomm has unveiled two new quad-core processors, the MSM8226 and the MSM8626. These 28nm silicon chipsets offer support for 13-megapixel cameras and feature an Adreno 305 GPU, which can handle video playback and recording up to full HD 1080p. Both of these processors and their Qualcomm Reference Design versions will make their appearance in Q2
One area where Moore’s law can be seen alive and well seems to be the developer and small project computer world. Whether it’s the ubiquitous Raspberry Pi, Intel’s NUC, or any number of similar products. There’s one more name to add to this list, and that’s the ODROID-U from Hardkernel. The boards are a little more expensive than Raspberry Pi’s impressively cheap Model A and Model B, but you are getting some bang for that buck. The $ 69 ODROID-U comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor (as found in the Galaxy S III and Note II, 1GB of RAM, quad-core Mali 400 graphics, micro-HDMI, a brace of USB ports, a headphone jack and Ethernet. If you want a little more oomph, for an extra $ 20 you can have the RAM doubled, and a 1.7GHz core with the ODROID-U2 model. There’s one stat you might notice missing which is flash memory. There’s no onboard storage, so you’ll have to bring your own memory for the built-in microSD slot. As the ODROID name suggests, the boards can run Android, as well as a variety of Linux flavours. Sound good? In a reverse of what you might expect, the ODROID-U2 will be available first, starting December 21st, with the cheaper board pencilled in to arrive on January 16th.

Apparently feeling we were running low on Galaxy smartphones after the current lineup of Galaxy S III, Galaxy S III mini and Galaxy Note II, Samsung’s SHV-E270L just made the FCC rounds and is rumored to be next in line. Flashing its codename “Baffin” in the documents, this device does not seem destined for an appearance beyond Korean borders, but a unique blend of specs and rumors that it will arrive as the “Galaxy Grand” continue to intrigue. Listed as an LTE phone in the Bluetooth database, and appearing in GLBenchmark reporting a 1.4GHz (possibly quad-core) CPU like the Galaxy S III, but with a much lower 800×480 WVGA display. According to a report from Korea’s Money Today, the idea is to create a device for older customers that’s easier to read with bigger icons and letters on its large 5-inch low res screen (as opposed to the 5-inch 1080p pixel density monsters we’re now accustomed to), with a quad-core CPU pushing Android 4.1 and its Smart Stay features plus a 2,100mAh battery. We’re not sure if it will increase your parent’s scores in Fruit Ninja, but vision-challenged KT, LG U+ and SK Telecom customers may have an interesting decision to make very soon.
It’s been almost a year since the ridiculously expensive SCH-W999 launched on China Telecom, so it’s about time for Samsung to come up with yet another dual-screen flip phone to lure folks with too much money. Launched in conjunction with a big charity concert (again) earlier today is the SCH-W2013, a 1.4GHz quad-core (likely an Exynos 4412) device with Android 4.0 and dual-3.7-inch 800 x 480 Super AMOLED touchscreens. On top of that there’s 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD expansion of up to 64GB, 1,850mAh of battery juice, an eight-megapixel main imager plus a whopping 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. As with many flagship devices on China Telecom, the W2013 comes with dual-SIM support: one for CDMA2000 800/1900 and the other for GSM 900/1800/1900. The damage? Well, there’s nothing official yet, but it’s believed to be somewhere between ¥18,000 ($ 2,900) and ¥20,000 ($ 3,210). After all, it ain’t cheap to hire Jackie Chan (and he was also given a W2013 at the concert).
Asustek Transformer Pad TF300TL has quad-core processor and LTE support along with a 10.1-inch screen, the company said Friday.
Intel’s curious decision to shun the US and release Medfield-powered smartphones in India, China, Russia and the UK might be because of those countries’ underdeveloped levels of LTE. Marketing chief Sumeet Syal told TechCrunch that its current-generation x86 system-on-chip won’t support the standard, but a capable version will arrive at the end of the year — with production ramping up in 2013. He also let slip to the site that dual-core versions will arrive shortly, each core theoretically able to beast its rivals thanks to Intel’s hyper threading know-how. Syal said that Santa Clara is “comfortable” with its progress just months after entering the smartphone space but declined to discuss numbers — for which we’ll have to wait for the Q3 earnings call in October to find out how well (or not) it’s really doing.
The upcoming ASUS Padfone 2 has been making its way to headlines this past week, and today we have a leak reportedly sharing its full spec sheet. After seeing some leaked benchmarks, yesterday ASUS sent out invitations for their official unveil, but today we might know all the details a bit early. While we can’t
If there’s been a race in the Pico-ITX realm to catch up to full-size PCs, VIA just leapt ahead by a few bounds with the EPIA-P910. The tiny PC mates one of VIA’s 1GHz QuadCore E-Series processors with a VX11H media core to handle the kinds of tasks that would break just about any other system its size: stereoscopic 3D displays and DirectX 11 3D graphics are entirely within the realm of possibility. Likewise, there’s a surprising amount of expansion headroom compared to many of the P910′s similarly small counterparts, such as the 8GB RAM ceiling and support for both HDMI 1.4a and USB 3.0. You’ll need to get in touch with VIA if you want to find out how much it costs to work the new EPIA into an embedded PC, and it’s more likely to be headed to corporate buyers than to homebrew projects. We’re still looking forward to the shot of visual adrenaline, whether it’s in a mini PC or a store display.
We saw a leaked hint of what was coming for Intel’s Valleyview system-on-a-chip (SoC), but now the full plan appears to have been outed by Chinese blog Expreview. The lineup will feature four models of the 22nm chips, with the D- and M-series looking to replace the Cedar Trail 32nm SoC chips used in current netbook and low-end desktop devices. The I-series is for embedded and industrial use, while the T-series would appear in tablets and other small form-factor devices, according to the leaked slides. That model would supersede the Clover Trail SoCs, which are only just arriving themselves in upcoming Windows 8 slates like the Acer W510 or Asus Tablet 810.
The chips should offer a burly horsepower bump over their predecessors, with up to four cores and clock speeds topping out at 2.4Ghz. The icing on the cake will be the integrated Gen 7 graphics engines of Ivy Bridge fame, featuring the same HD 4000 and HD 2500 GPU‘s as the grownup chips, but with only four “execution units” instead of the 16 you’d find there. That would offload functions like video decoding and 3D rendering from the CPU and allow simultaneous display to a TV or monitor. Bay Trail would also support 8GB of DDR3 RAM, double that of the “last” gen, and support USB 3.0, SATA 2.0 and a host of other connection options. If the leak is accurate, the processors would arrive sometime next year, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s soon enough for Intel to take a run at its formidable competition.
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly quad-core processor, you need look no further than the AMD FX 4130. This new AMD processor is a small step up from the AMD FX 4100, offering clock speeds at 3.8/3.9GHz to the FX 4100′s 3.6/3.8GHz. Not too bad, especially considering that you’ll only be paying $ 11 more for
LG Electronics has launched an LTE smartphone with a quad-core processor, the Optimus G, which it hopes will set it apart from the competition as the smartphone market starts to ramp up for the holiday season.
So, it seems that all those airborne clues about LG’s new superphone are slowly coalescing into something more concrete. In fact, according to the folk at AndroidMx, so concrete they’ve actually had a go with one. Most of the specification they report chimes with what we’d already heard. The 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4, the 2GB of RAM, the 4.7-inch IPS display, Android 4.0.4 and 13-megapixel camera, all present and correct. The screen resolution actually claims to be 1,280 x 768 if the grabs are to be believed, but AndroidMx does remind us that this is all pre-production hardware, so final details might change. This makes sense, especially given the video tease we saw yesterday, which hinted at a slightly more rounded design. Hopes are, that we’ll be put out of our misery come IFA, but with other potentially big announcements also in the pipeline, it’s going to be a busy week in mobile-land.
The folks at Qualcomm have announced that they’ll be collaborating with LG to release their Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor to the market quite soon. This “global device” as they’re calling it at the moment will bring a Adreno 320 GPU as well as support for “higher HD resolution displays”. This bit of architecture will
It appears that T-Mobile will soon be getting the HTC One X, although this time around it will be coming with slightly different branding. HTC’s powerhouse will apparently be called the HTC One X+ when it arrives at T-Mobile, and though there are many things that are similar to the currently-available One X, there are
LG has an ongoing smartphone problem: despite a few valiant efforts (the G2x comes to mind) the company continues to live in the shadow of rival Samsung. Most of this malaise can be attributed to hit-and-miss hardware combined with lackluster software (we’re looking at you, Spectrum). Last February, at Mobile World Congress, LG spiced things up with an attractive collection of devices including the Optimus L7, Optimus Vu and Optimus 4X HD — the latter being one of the first quad-core handsets announced. Now, six months later, we live in a world where the global versions of HTC’s One X and Samsung’s Galaxy S III dominate the superphone market and share the quad-core crown. With me-too features like a Tegra 3 processor, 4.7-inch HD display, 8-megapixel camera and Ice Cream Sandwich on board, the Optimus 4X HD appears ready to play in the big leagues. Does it succeed or is it just a flash in the pan? Is it all style over substance or does it bring something unique and meaningful to the table? Hit the break for our full review.

Samsung has outed its Galaxy S III for Korea, and we suppose we shouldn’t begrudge them keeping what’s potentially the best iteration of the flagship Android phone for the home market. The phone – which goes on sale via a trio of carriers today – pairs a quadcore processor like the European original with LTE connectivity
While in the US our LTE-equipped Galaxy S IIIs are packing dual-core Snapdragon S4 processors, the (so far) Korean-only Galaxy S III LTE that combines the quad-core Exynos processor of the international model with high speed data finally has a release date — July 9th. Samsung’s post indicates three carriers (SK Telecom, KT and LG U+) are lined up for the launch and confirms that the battery will remain at 2,100 mAH along with 2GB of RAM and DMB TV tuning. Having everything will likely come at a price of battery life since the quad-core CPUs are not as well integrated with LTE so far, but those willing to compromise for more cores (despite the dual-core Krait’s not-at-all shabby performance) will likely look on with envy.
Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy S III smartphone is coming in multiple variations for the different mobile markets around the world. There’s a quad-core version, as well as a dual-core model with 2GB of RAM for the US. We are now seeing rumors suggesting the best of both worlds will be headed to SK Telecom over
Creative Labs might want to get some white gloves, because we recognized its fingerprints on the HanZPad, a Chinese tablet platform which just landed at the FCC. Using its own ZiiLABS division’s ZMS-40 ICS optimized SoC (system on chip), the thinnish 7.95mm tab looks to have meaty specs with a quad-core ARM 1.5GHz processor, 1280 x 800 10-inch IPS display, 1GB RAM and microSD slot allowing up to 64GB of external storage. On top of Android 4.0 support, Creative will be developing its own OS for the device, which will be distributed through OEMs and its own channels. While currently tapped for the Chinese market, Creative’s weighty US presence may suggest it’ll eventually reach across the Pacific — if it does, let’s just hope it leaves the smudges behind.
The British clearly didn’t waste any time once pre-orders opened up for the Galaxy S III, which just broke through pre-order records for at least one carrier and one retailer in the country. Carphone Warehouse‘s chief commercial officer Graham Stapleton says that the quad-core, 4.8-inch flagship is the quickest-moving pre-order of the year “so far,” while Vodafone UK adds that the new Galaxy is its most pre-ordered Android device to date. Without hard numbers, though, it’s difficult not to couch the successes in relative terms: both are using conditional language that makes clear neither record is absolute and that they might be eclipsed by companies with a knack for building early demand. Even so, that pride in early results suggests the third time is indeed the charm and that Samsung won’t have much trouble filling its own pop-up stores with customers at the end of the month.
When the Galaxy S III does land in the US, it might not have that rumored quad-core chip. That’s according to a Samsung executive speaking to The Korea Times, who told the publication that Galaxy S IIIs in different markets will feature different chips. In Europe, the GSIII will feature Samsung’s Exynos quad-core processor, while Qualcomm’s
Asustek on Sunday started shipping its Transformer Pad 300 tablet in the U.S., with the company pitching the tablet as a gaming device and laptop replacement.
This is, well, a little strange. The fine folks over at Netbooknews are reporting that Samsung has ended production on the GT P5100 — better known as the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The story comes courtesy of an unnamed “Korean Samsung insider” who claims the device is getting upgraded to a quad-core CPU. Whether the chip in question is the much lauded 32nm Exynos 4412, which packs not only four Cortex A9 cores, but four Mali 604 GPU cores as well, is unknown. It’s also not clear how this is going to affect US launch plans. Rumors are the Galaxy Note 10.1 will be getting a similar brain transplant before hitting the market. Sadly, all we can do right now hold our breath and wish real hard that both will hit shelves sooner rather than later and with an extra pair of cores in tow. Sammy better get a move on too if it’s gonna have to give Uncle Sam another crack at this slate.
Just five months after the Meizu MX became official, it’s getting the quad-core processor that the Chinese superphone was rumored to get in the first place. But this time there’s a surprise: the MX Quad-core is using Samsung’s Exynos A9 architecture for its system-on-a-chip, something that should make performance junkies ecstatic even without a given clock speed.
Asus' latest Transformer Pad 300 will start shipping in the U.S. on April 22, the company said Friday. The tablet is being pitched as a laptop replacement with 4G LTE network capabilities.
