Android 5.0 coming to Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II

Android 5.0 (rumored to be named Key Lime Pie) hasn’t been officially announced yet, but it’s already rumored to be coming to the now-last-generation Samsung Galaxy S III, as well as the Galaxy Note II. Furthermore, it’s also said that the Galaxy S II and the original Galaxy Note will eventually be receiving the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.

It’s said that Samsung will only be updating five of its devices to Android 5.0 when it eventually releases. These devices include the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Note 10.1, and of course, the new Galaxy S 4. While there’s no definitive release date for Android 5.0, we could see it announced at this year’s Google I/O conference.

As for Android 4.2.2, 15 Samsung devices are on the list to receive the update, all of which will see the updates ending after the 4.2.2 update. The Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S III Mini, Galaxy S II Plus, and the Galaxy Beam are just a few of the handsets that are said to have made the cut for the Jelly Bean update.
Again, this is just rumored for now, and hopefully we’ll actually hear from Samsung after Google I/O as far as upgrading devices to Android 5.0. Samsung is second to Google as far as companies who update the most devices to the latest version of Android. All of the Nexus devices receive updates to the latest Android version, while Samsung follows just behind the search giant.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d

Xarius: Charge Your Mobile From Air
