Samsung on Monday unveiled three new smartphones in South Korea, the GALAXY S II LTE and GALAXY S II HD LTE Android phones, and the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango-powered Omnia W.

Samsung's next Android, Windows Phone and bada devices leaked

Several of Samsung’s forthcoming Android, Windows Phone and bada devices have been leaked by telefonino.net. If the leak is indeed legitimate, Samsung will surely have some big announcements during the Berlin-based IFA trade show in early September and probably at CTIA Fall 2011 in October as well. Starting things off, the P6200 is said to be a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet with a 1024 x 600-pixel Super AMOLED display, an HSDPA radio, a 3-megapixel camera and a 2-megapixel forward-facing camera for video chats. Also on deck is the Samsung I9250, which is apparently equipped with a 4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD display, a 5-megapixel camera and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Samsung’s first Windows Phone Mango device could be the Samsung i8350 Omnia W, which offers a 3.7-inch WVGA display, a 1GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera. It’s expected to launch in October according to the report, which is on a par with Microsoft’s leaked Mango launch plans. Read on for more details on Samsung’s Android and bada handsets. More →

Samsung Romania seemingly confirms Nexus Prime report

Samsung Romania seemingly confirms Nexus Prime report

Samsung Romania appears to have accidentally verified BGR’s exclusive report covering the Nexus Prime along with various specs. Romanian paper Ziarul Financiar recently mirrored parts of our report, stating that the Nexus Prime will sport a Super AMOLED Plus HD screen and will run Google’s new Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system. Samsung Romania’s PR teem tweeted the story, which is a practice that is uncommon for official company Twitter accounts as such tweets are construed as confirm an article’s validity. The Ziarul Financiar write-up and Samsung’s original tweets have since been pulled, and Samsung Romania is blaming the snafu on a leak from an outside source. We’re also expecting the Nexus Prime to pack Texas Instruments’ new OMAP 4460 processor, and our sources have indicated that Google may be planning to launch “pure Google” devices with multiple OEMs across a number of carriers. A screenshot of Samsung Romania’s tweets follows below. More →

Google’s first Ice Cream Sandwich phone to be manufactured by Samsung, possibly dubbed ‘Nexus Prime’

We exclusively reported details of Google’s first Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone — either a Nexus device, or a “pure Google” flagship handset from one of Google’s key partners — and we now have more information surrounding the world’s most anticipated Android phone. We reported that the handset would nix physical menu keys going forward, and would feature a monster 720p -resolution display, and we have now confirmed with our source that the screen itself is branded as a “Super AMOLED HD” display. The branding confirms our suspicions that Samsung will indeed be the manufacturer. We have also confirmed that the processor in the upcoming device will be an OMAP4460, just as we originally reported. Hit the jump for more. More →
