Samsung recently launched a teaser website, “tgeltaayehxnx.com,” that contained a twenty-four hour countdown. When the clock hit zero Monday morning, the website redirected users to thenextgalaxy.com. Samsung teases its next-generation Galaxy device with an embedded video, and says a “whole new world will soon be unpacked.” In the final frame, the video promises that the new Galaxy device will allow users to “stand out from everyone else,” as hundreds of sheep stand in a field — a clear dig at iPhone users, who are sometimes referred to as “iSheep.” Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S III smartphone, possibly alongside a new Galaxy Tab tablet and cloud service, on May 3rd. The teaser video can be found after the break. More →
Electronic Arts and Crytek announced the highly anticipated next installment of the Crysis franchise earlier this week, and the companies have now released the first Crysis 3 teaser that includes gameplay footage. Albeit brief, the teaser reel showcases a new weapon and stunning graphics that will definitely pique gamers’ interest. “Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said in a statement. “Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.” The first full trailer for Crysis 3 will be released on April 24th, and Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is already available for pre-order ahead of its release in 2013. The full teaser video can be viewed below. More →
HP recently circulated a short video of a new ultra-thin notebook that is purportedly its upcoming HP Envy Spectre ultrabook. While there aren’t any specs discussed in the video, we’re definitely impressed by what appears to be a very sleek design. HP’s first ultrabook, the Folio 13, was unveiled in November and it offers the latest Intel Core processors, a 128GB SSD and more for a relatively affordable $900 price point. The Consumer Electronics Show is just around the corner so hopefully we’ll hear a bit more about the Spectre next week. The clip follows after the break. More →
Samsung just cranked our anticipation meters up to 11. The phone maker on Wednesday posted a teaser video for the Nexus Prime, which is expected to be unveiled during Samsung’s Unpacked event in San Diego on Tuesday, October 11th, alongside Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The video does not reveal much about the phone or Ice Cream Sandwich, but we do see the Nexus Prime appears to be incredibly thin and it will sport a curved glass display similar to the one on the Nexus S. Additionally, there are three small metal dots on the side, which suggests it may support one or more dock accessories. Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to run on both tablets and smartphones, merging Honeycomb and Gingerbread features into a single Android build. BGR will be reporting live from the event, where we will hear all of the details on the new operating system, the Nexus Prime hardware and more. Samsung’s full teaser video follows below.
Vodafone in Australia has just put up a teaser page for what is undoubtedly the upcoming Apple iPhone 5. What else could be “this year’s biggest smartphone release,” some generic run-of-the-mill Android handset? In any case, Vodafone is giving interested customers the ability to subscribe to receive updates about the iconic handset once official information becomes available, and it even offers to “end the rumors.” Isn’t that thoughtful? Apple is expected to introduce the company’s next-generation iPhone at a press conference on October 4th with availability to follow sometime in mid-October.
A new 31-second teaser for Verizon Wireless’ upcoming Motorola DROID Bionic confirms that the phone will launch on September 8th, a date that has floated around in many rumors recently. Toward the end of the reel, at the 0:26 mark precisely, the video quickly displays the date before showing “DROID Bionic” and “2011.9.8″ in another frame. The video is otherwise in Korean, which seems a bit odd to us. At least we know that after delays and a redesign the DROID Bionic is less than a week away from making its debut. The phone is expected to offer support for Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network and rumors suggest it is equipped with a 4.5-inch screen, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p video, a front-facing camera for video chat and an HDMI-port. Read on to see the video for yourself. More →
Earlier this week, ASUS teased a new device to be unveiled at the annual Computex trade show. The question it raised, “pad or phone?” lead many to speculate that we might be looking at another device featuring a convertible form factor similar to that of the company’s popular Eee Pad Transformer. Now, new teaser images posted to ASUS’ Facebook page add fuel to the fire. The first teaser, pictured above on the left, shows a smartphone and reads, “Break the rules: A tablet that jumps out at you.” The second, pictured on the right, shows both a tablet and an Android phone while asking, “Break the rules: Pad or phone? How about both?” It would now certainly appear as though ASUS is preparing to unveil a hybrid device that marries a smartphone with a tablet, just as the Eee Pad Transformer married a tablet with a netbook computer.

Can’t get enough Sony tablet madness? The company has just posted a teaser video for their just announced S1 and S2 tablets set to debut later this fall. We’re talking about products that could change at any time (even the names aren’t final), but it’s still great to see a visual representation of what they’ll presumably offer, no? More →
We just were sent a teaser video for Verizon Wireless’ Samsung DROID Charge, the carrier’s latest 4G LTE smartphone. If you’re up for following the DROID Charge’s landing saga, make sure to check out http://www.chargelanding.com. Plus, you know we have to ask… if you are in the market for a 4G smartphone on Verizon, are you leaning towards the ThunderBolt or DROID Charge?
Samsung on Wednesday posted a new flyer to its Facebook page that hints at a new tablet the company plans to unveil at CTIA. The device in question will be the third addition to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab lineup, though it’s hard to call it third when the second Galaxy tablet — the Galaxy Tab 10.1 — still hasn’t seen the light of day. The new slate is expected to sport an 8.9-inch display, positioning it between the 7-inch Galaxy Tab and the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 10.1. The device may be named “Galaxy Tab 8.9,” though the moniker has not yet been confirmed. Samsung will be holding a press conference at CTIA on March 22nd where this new tablet and several other devices are expected to be unveiled. BGR will be covering the event live to report news as it breaks. More →
This is cold HP, so very cold. One week ahead of its scheduled February 9th media event, the company has posted a brief, 9 second video to taunt the webOS faithful. What we see lurking in the shadows of said video looks to be a very well rounded (insert rimshot) piece of hardware. What does Palm have in store of us? A new smartphone? A new tablet? Both? Your friends at BGR will be in sunny San Francisco next week to bring you the news as it happens. Meanwhile, the video is waiting for you after the break. More →
It looks like the folks at LG have gone and hired themselves a mediocre video-production company and that guy who does voiceovers for MMA commercials. The company has put out a short video teaser, touting its “triumphant return to the smartphone market”, the “world’s first dual-core, multichannel” smartphone, and “something bigger” that is coming our way at Mobile World Congress. We’re not sure if this “something bigger” is the LG Optimus 3D or perhaps a new, tablet offering. Regardless, the short clip is awaiting your scrutiny after the break. Let us know what you think.

We know the next generation of Samsung’s Galaxy S handset, being referred to as the Galaxy S2, is due to drop at Mobile World Congress in just two weeks. We assume the device will sport Samsung’s new Super AMOLED Plus display and a more current processor offering. What we don’t know is exactly what the device will look like… until now. In a short teaser video, Sammy gives us a quick look at the profile of the next generation Gally S. What can we surmise from the video? Not much, other than the device is going to be incredibly thin… like really thin. You don’t have to take our word for it, the clip is waiting for you after the break. Enjoy. More →
