A supposed leak of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II + running Android 4.0 with TouchWiz UI has appeared on the inter webs. Industry insider Eldar Murtazin is responsible for the above image of the suspicious looking phone. A close look reveals that the buttons below have been updated to host the new flavor of the Android platform, Ice Cream Sandwich. The device is being considered as the Samsung Galaxy S2 plus purely because of its resemblance to the S2 and the fact that a benchmark score has also popped up on an3dbenchxl website. The device is running a 1.5 GHz processor on a Android 2.3.4 platform, but that could have changed by now.
Various builds of ICS on the Samsung Galaxy S2 have started to leak out, indicating that they are meant to be upgraded through Kies. They consist of an early Android 4.0.1 build made on December 20th and version 4.0.3 crafted soon after. These builds are much more improved than the builds released earlier, included cosmetic changes and less neon looking notification. The builds also seem to have better integration with Samsung Apps.
Its like winning and loosing all round, Apple was denied injunction lift suspension and Samsung was denied primary sale ban in France. The french courts yesterday denied Samsung’s request to ban the sales of Apple iPhone 4S in France. The court called the reaction out of proportion with its claims of intellectual property theft and ordered Samsung to pay a fine of €100,000 (about $134,000) to cover Cupertino’s legal fees.
The case is one of many legal battles being waged between Samsung and Apple in the United States, Italy, and several other countries over intellectual property protecting their smartphones.
Before the journey, Here are the major and upcoming smartphones of India in a spec by spec battle.
