The 5.5″ Samsung Galaxy Note II which will be available here soon brings a host of new features on top of what’s being offered on the Galaxy S III. Among the new features include AirView, Smart Rotation and Multi-View.
After the Multi-View feature was demonstrated, some are wondering if this is a Korean market specific feature as units sold in the UK didn’t come with it. Now Samsung has finally released an update which supposedly enables Multi-View for the rest of the world. Apparently Galaxy Note II units in France has already received an update as shown above. To get a better idea how Multi-View works, check out the demonstration here.
To recap on the specs, the Galaxy Note II offers a quad-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and a massive 3,100mAh battery. Compared to the original Galaxy Note, the new version has a smaller width by 3% and thinner by 2.5%. Do check out the spec comparison with today’s latest offering including the iPhone 5 here.

The Sony Xperia Tablet S which was announced recently has hit a snag when its water resistant capabilities was discovered to be not up to par. This is due to a gap between the display panel and the back panel. While it is unclear if any users had reported any water issues, Sony has offered free inspections to owners. As much as 100,000 units of the Xperia Tablet S have been sold so far.
For affected units, Sony is offering repair, replacement or refund at no extra charge.

Word has it that one of the next upcoming Google Nexus device will be coming from LG which will be based on its flagship LG Optimus G. Although it shares similar hardware, the design of the Nexus device will be totally different which possibly maintain the same curved design of the Galaxy Nexus.
Among the specs revealed include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM and 8GB/16GB of on-board storage. The display would be utilising LG’s 1280×768 TrueHD IPS screen and there’s a 8MP shooter at the back. The next Nexus is said to be running on Android 4.2 and it is expected to be revealed next month. What’s new with the Optimus based Nexus is it supports wireless charging. The downside for this device would be its non-removable battery and there’s no microSD expansion slot.
Earlier chatter also suggests that the LG Nexus device would have some water resistant capabilities but this is yet to be confirmed. While LG isn’t favoured for its speed of software updates, perhaps a Nexus device this time might attract some new consideration for their smart phone.
It has been a year since the Galaxy Nexus was revealed and replacement is finally due. It was earlier rumoured that we could be seeing as much as 3 Nexus phones from different manufactures – LG, Sony & Samsung. Samsung’s upcoming Nexus device is said to be a bumped up version from the existing Galaxy Nexus with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, better cameras (8MP back, 1.9MP front) and the inclusion of a microSD expansion slot.
