Samsung Galaxy S4 users on NTT DoCoMo in Japan will begin to receive their Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update later this month. The update will add a number of new features and TouchWiz improvements, including support for the Galaxy Gear.


Samsung’s working on a new high-end smartphone for Japan called the Galaxy J, and it has just been leaked ahead of its official debut. The device looks a lot like the Galaxy Note II, but it has a smaller 5-inch display. Don’t assume it’s a cheaper version, though — it also has a faster Snapdragon 800 processor, a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a dust- and water-resistant design.


Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo has today unveiled the LG Optimus G Pro, a successor to the flagship Optimus G, which offers a much-improved display, a faster processor, and a bigger battery. The device comes just four months after the Optimus G was announced, and it aims to compete with the latest crop of smartphones that pack a full high-definition 1080p display, such as the HTC Droid DNA, and the Sony Xperia Z.


Samsung sells some of the best and most successful Android devices currently available. The Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note II are undoubtedly two of the hottest Android handsets on the market, and they’ve both shifted millions upon millions of units. But despite that success, the Korean electronics giant is expected to try its luck with another mobile operating system in 2013.

It’s called Tizen, and Samsung’s been developing it alongside Intel. Samsung confirmed its plans to merge the open-source operating system with its own Bada OS back in October, and according to a new report, it will partner up with NTT DoCoMo to launch its first Tizen-powered smartphones in Korea in 2013.

Japanese mobile operator NTT DOCOMO announced its plans to join forces with the fab five — Samsung, Panasonic, Fujitsu Limited, Fujitsu Semiconductor and NEC — to put an end to Qualcomm’s long held reign of mobile processing chip domination. Together they plan on developing “feature-rich, small-size, low-power-consumption semiconductor products equipped with modem functionality,” focusing on LTE and LTE-Advanced mobile communication standards. As long as all parties agree on the details, this “Semiconductor Six” (as I’m calling them) should be established and ready to powerhouse the mobile industry by the mid-January.
