Sunday Android News
1. Samsung Lebanon said on their Facebook page that Galaxy S4 is going to be released later than May. Most likely on their own event like S3. There is a leaked photo as well but let’s not believe it right now. It’s too early to tell.
2. Facebook “reserves” their Pages Manager app for Android on Google Play by setting up a sample app. Some people downloaded it and reviewed it as non-compatible to any device. Facebook has locked the download to every countries so nobody can test it anymore. Probably they will have an announcement soon.
3. Samsung Korea says there is a Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S2 in the work. No time given though. But expecting your S2 to have Google Now, Project Butter, new Camera functions, Smart Stay and Pop-up Play. Sweet, hah?
4. Google releases active Android versions usage last month: Jelly Bean kicking around 10% now. That’s quick, probably thanks to S3, Note 2, and Nexus 7. Some other devices out there are being updated and released as well but these three should have the leading sales. Gingerbread phones are now under 50%.
5. Talking about sales, some XDA members managed to find out the secret Nexus 4 sales: around 700,000. Not even a million. That is a disappointing sales number for LG because the Nexus 4 are being wanted everywhere thanks to its impressive specs and price tag. LG manufacturing speed is to blame. Christmas has already passed and people haven’t been able to even order a Nexus 4 yet (if you live outside the supported countries).
6. CES is coming. You know there will be a lot of things to talk about.
That’s it, folks. Have fun.
