Samsung is having a hard time shaking off speculations on its next Android device rumoured to be the Nexus Two. Fresh from Engadget are new details of its next flagship Android device which looks rather convincing.
The power point slide above tells us that Samsung’s upcoming phone will have a 4.3″/4.5″ sAMOLED2 which seems to be Super AMOLED 2. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of the supported resolution but we believe it could be something higher than its current 800×480 resolution on the Galaxy S. It also states 1.2GHz processor and it runs on the upcoming Gingerbread Android OS. Other notable features is a 8MP camera with LED flash and the capability of shooting FULL 1080p HD video.
Now this is something new as most of the new speculated Android devices doesn’t really differ much from its Samsung Galaxy S. Who knows, this could be the rumoured Samsung Galaxy S2 which we mentioned earlier.

Earlier on we’ve seen a brutal prying of Samsung Galaxy Tab which revealed its internals partially. Now it’s time to see how it is done by the professionals. iFixit which does high quality dissecting guides now has their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Tab and they are giving it their signature tear down treatment.
In the earlier prying, the person mentioned that the glass seems to be fused together with the frame, which makes repair more complicated if it is broken. iFixit too had a hard time removing the glass that they even used a heat gun! This makes the Tab score high marks for difficulty level.

Maxis has started accept registration of interest for its first Windows Phone 7 bundling with the HTC HD7. The HTC HD7 is a 4.3″ touch screen device with 5.0MP camera assisted with dual flash which also does 720p HD video recording.

You’ve gotta admit that most devices today are not just more advanced but also more delicate especially when its a touch screen phone. Nokia being in the phone business for a long time had to ensure its products are able to withstand some abuse in its lifespan. One of the common abuse is being dropped from a table or your pockets which is among the various test that Nokia had conducted for its Nokia N8.
Nokia claims that they’ve conducted over 200 endurance test for its new models including extreme weather conditions, humidity, bending in pockets and button abuses. As usual, don’t try this at home.
