Samsung CEO JK Shin expects the Samsung Galaxy S4 to surpass 10 million sales next week, less than a month after its debut. The milestone will make the new device the fastest-selling Samsung smartphone to date, a title that’s currently held by its predecessor, the Galaxy S III.

We were surprised to see no new Nexus hardware at Google I/O on Wednesday. We were expecting at least a new Nexus 7, and possible a white Nexus 4 with 32GB of storage. The closest we got was a Samsung Galaxy S4 “Nexus edition” with stock Android.
But we may not have to wait too long before Google updates its 7-inch slate. In fact, it looks like the company has already begun teasing the device in its new promotional video for Google Hangouts.
Motorola is expected to announce a new Android flagship called the X Phone sometime this year, and recent rumors suggest that it’ll be worth getting excited about — particularly if you like pretty colors. According to an unnamed source at Motorola, the device will be available “in over 20 different colors.”
Google will reportedly announce a new Nexus 7 in the coming months — possibly at Google I/O in May — and it’s expected to become a big seller. According to sources in the search giant’s supply chain, 8 million units are expected to ship by the end of 2013.
If you’re a Nexus 4 owner and you’re lacking a few accessories, Google has your back. The company has released three new accessories via the Google Play Store, including some earphones, a USB cable, and a power adapter. Although the prices aren’t as low as we’d expect, they aren’t too bad for an official mobile device accessory.
Google’s second-generation Nexus 7 tablet will launch “around July,” powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors, Reuters reports. The device will reportedly push Google deeper into the “cut-price” hardware market with yet another aggressive pricing strategy, competing with other affordable tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire.
With Android 4.2, Google completely revamped the camera experience with a brand new interface and features like Photosphere. While the new UI may seem like a welcome change, it is poorly laid out which can make selecting the intended option cumbersome.
The lack of some downright basic options like scenes and timer mode does not help the matter, either. Worse, on the Nexus devices, the camera app has an auto-focus bug that can often lead to blurry photos.
While Motorola phones are not particularly known for their camera performance, the camera application on their handsets is perfect for most, with just the right amount of settings. Here is how you can get the Motorola camera app on your Android 4.0+ handset.
1080p displays are the latest must-have for high-end smartphones, but you may not see one on Google’s next Nexus. According to the latest rumor concerning the Nexus 5, the device will skip a full high-definition display and instead focus on a better camera and a bigger battery.
Could we be seeing the Nexus 5? According to an anonymous source that claims they work for Google, this is it. It’s a device equipped with the latest cutting-edge technology that promises to be the smartphone to beat for 2013. To us, it looks more like a fanboy’s mockup.
A new Motorola smartphone has surfaced in images and video from Vietnam ahead of the handset’s official unveiling. The device sports a design unlike anything we’ve seen from Motorola in recent years, with a small resemblance to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. But is this the flagship “X Phone” we’ve been expecting? It doesn’t look like it.
