• Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich hands-on (video)

    The Galaxy Nexus (formerly referred to as the Nexus Prime) carries on the Nexus torch in spectacular fashion, and we've just spent a few quality moments with one here at the launch event. Design-wise, it's clear that the Nexus S DNA is here, though the rear reminds us most of the Galaxy S II. Those who abhor physical buttons will also be delighted, and while we'd gotten used to the whole Power + Home for a screenshot on the GSII, Power + Volume Down works just fine on this fellow.......

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich now official, tons of enhancements

    PSHax member - Google has taken the stage in Hong Kong to make the next version of Android OS, nicknamed Ice Cream Sandwich, a thing of reality. Better known as Android 4.0, the update offers a massive redesign to the user interface and adds a plethora of new features. Some of the highlights include an NFC-enabled feature called Android Beam, offline search in Gmail, new lock screen features and a fancy unlocking method called "Face Unlock," which uses facial recognition to ensure strangers can't use your phone without permission. Ice Cream Sandwich also includes enhancements in.....

  • Motorola RAZR to get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012

    Mutricy mentioned that while the company's new flagship device was designed for Gingerbread, plans have been set to introduce the latest version of Android in the start of 2012, with a more precise date naturally on its way. Given past experience, however, it's probable that the unbranded version of the device will get the refresh ahead of the Droid RAZR on Verizon, so US users may need to exercise a wee bit of patience here. Regardless, it's time for the competition to step up......

  • HTC Rezound render resoundingly revealed- wait next November 10th

    Hark! The first renders of the HTC Rezound have appeared online, thanks to some of the device's cases going up for pre-order. You can see that, like the Sensation XE, the phone has red-glowing soft keys -- a bit of a departure from HTC's traditionally conservative design language. If you recall, the phone formerly called Vigor is said to have a 4.3-inch screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, Beats Audio and an 8MP rear camera.....

LG quad-core Android phone makes an appearance, the LG X3

Posted by Mohd Khairun Nasir Saadi On - - 0 comments

Another quad-core Android device has decided to show up today, this time coming from LG. Currently we know of two quad-core devices in the works, one of which is from Fujitsu which we played with at CES 2012, and the second rumored to be from HTC. Now we have a third which is coming from LG called the X3.

The LG X3, as it is currently names, will also be a true HD phone like the Nitro or Spectrum, running at 1280x720 resolution on a 4.7" screen. The chipset inside will bea Tegra 3 quad-core chipset from nVidia and the outside will play host to an 8MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front-facing camera. This new quad-core device should also come right out of the box with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).

Other specs floating around include 16GB of storage, a 2000mAh battery, a 21Mbps HSPA radio (with the possibility of LTE versions in certain areas), physical capacitive and not touchscreen buttons, and also a fabled NFC transceiver. So far it the LG X3 sounds like a beastly little phone.

If you want to nab one of these though you will have to wait a bit as the release for the LG X3 is slated for sometime in late Spring to early Summer. No word yet on what carrier(s) will get the device although I'm hoping for T-Mobile. We could see this unveiled at Mobile World Congress next month.
