Samsung announced the next generation of its popular GALAXY S line of products in London today. The idea behind its design is that this smartphone will get to know and ultimately understand you. At the heart of how you will interact with the phone is a natural language interface called S Voice. It can be used to tell the phone what to do - anything from play a favorite song, send messages, or take a picture with the camera. The feature will get so accustomed to you, that it will be able to recognize your voice and even your face. With a 4.8-inch display the phone is a bit smaller than the Galaxy Note.
There are also quite a few enhancements made in the camera such as a zero-lag shutter speed, a burst shot feature for capturing 20 shots in a row, and even a Best Photo option that can select the best picture out of eight photographs. Find a photo that you want to share with others feel free to share it using Buddy Photo Share. Want to share something larger? Then check out S Beam. Its like Android Beam, but will work with bigger files such as a 1GB movie file in three minutes or 10MB music file in just a few seconds. None of this requires using a WiFi or data connection.
Now for the tech specifics: The phone will sport a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED (bright, crisp, and viewable in bright sunlight), rear-facing 8-megapixel camera and front-facing 1.9-megapixel camera, built-in NFC Chip, and run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The phone will be able to playback full HD 1080p video. Plus the phone can be turned on its side for watching videos in 16:9 widescreen mode. There will be 16GB and 32GB configurations for onboard storage with a 64GB model available soon and it will support up to a 64GB microSD card. Thats plenty of storage for videos, photos, music, files, and more.
The phone will be available this summer and you can learn more about it by cheking out the The Next Galaxy.

The idea behind this feature is that it will offer improved voice quality making callers sound fuller and more natural and help reduce background noise. As the cell phone name suggests, this Sprint model will work on the companys 4G LTE network that will be unveiled in select cities by the middle of this year. The cell phone will also work with Sprints 3G network when 4G LTE service isnt available. The Mobile HotSpot feature can be used to share the data connection with up to 8 WiFi-capable devices.

The cell phone will have 16GB of onboard memory and will accept up to 32GB microSD card - plenty of room for storing pictures and video. Since HTC teamed up with Beats, its no surprise that the HTC EVO 4G LTE will feature Beats Audio allowing users to listen to music the way the artist intended.

The popular photo-sharing site, Instagram, previously available only in the Apple iOS App store is now available for Android users in the Google Play store. Instagram is a free app that you can use to transform the look and feel of a picture taken with the camera on a smartphone by adding a filter (Hudson, lo-fi, and tons more). Have a photo you like? Then go ahead and share it to Facebook, Twitter, and even Tumblr. Similar to many social media apps other Instagram users can follow the pictures you share. The Instagram Android app will work with any Android phone running the 2.2 OS or higher.
Heres a picture we took using the new Instagram App for Android. Let us know if youre going to be an Instagram user, too.
