I very seriously doubt the device will be exclusive to Verizon. That makes no sense. A CDMA-only device would have no worldwide market.
If that rumor is true, I will be very disappointed as I will not EVER go back to Verizon or AT&T, for any reason whatsoever.
That Screen would be too Big for one Hand use. Even 4.3" screen phone is difficut to type with one hand.
If all these specs are true, this effectively kills the 5 in tablet market.
Specs are VERY similar to the LG LU6200. Minor differences include .15 bigger screen and that's about it.
Not bad as the LU6200 is looking very good so this Next Nexus should be something to compete with.
AnonD-16587, 17 Sep 2011GSM Arena, why is 1280x800 resolution more probable/logical? The ongoing trend is precisely 12... morea wxga screen will keep it consistent with the tablets. easier cross platform app interface designs.
btw no android device with a 1280x720 screen exists at the moment.
GSM Arena, why is 1280x800 resolution more probable/logical? The ongoing trend is precisely 1280x720 (HD), not 1280x800, which is implemented only in one device so far - Galaxy Note - and that's for a 5.3-incher.
I think 720p is more probable.
He lost me when he added that only Verizon will get the device. Not even vaguely possible rumors. Come on GSMArena. Sammie wouldn't release their flagship device on only one carrier.
Samsunbg has the latest hardware and that's why Google is making another alliance with them ...that's how i see things
Samsung hardware + Google designs = perfect !
Even if its true, coming out by Q4 it would still be the middle-ground between current S2 and S3; its Galaxy S2.5, if you like.
If you've got S2 already, as I did then its probably working great, as amazing as the spec sound, it simply make sense more sense jumping on the Galaxy S3 bandwagon.
It's probably the case this is to steal iPhone 5's thunder; by now surely a move that's unnecessary given the success of S2; amounted by Google Nexus's typical unpopular uptake by networks, it likely only few would ever have one; further more its a move from Google that's more puzzling now they've acquired Motorola.
"16GB internal memory, with the option to expand it further." does that mean there will be microsd card slot?. I hope it will support the new microSDXC 64GB-2TB flash memory.
I could have wrote that but no-one would believe me,,but i sort of admire Samsung they really push boundrys of what possible and innovate..I reckon no-one on the planet would have dreampt of releasing a 4 inch screen (excluding dell streak yuk)never mind chucking out s.3 plus sammys displays,DnSe settings,vivid massagung on earlier fones was brilliant idea ,plus sonic wellness etc.
So it's a Note that got Googled :)) ,you should of see it coming :) it's the SGS-NS think all over again.
Killer specs ,don't care if it beats the "new wonder from Apple" because i do not care! And you shouldn't either !
Really want to see the design of this one ,hope the G-man will do wonders ...again.
...don't like the screen size tough ..4.2/4.3" would of been much more atractive ! :(
