Samsung Galaxy S II 1080p 30Mbit/s video hack released

Remember the Samsung Galaxy S II hack we told you about yesterday that allowed for 1080p 24Mbit/s video recording on the Android smartphone? As we hoped, it's spawned a new package for GSII owners wanting to boost video quality, with original dev hyperX working with xda-developers' Potatoman (who had already released an audio quality tweak for the phone) on a way to persuade the Samsung to record up to 30Mbit/s Super Fine 1080p HD at 30fps with 48Khz/192kbps audio.

Samsung Galaxy S II gets 1080p 24 Mbit/s recording hack [Updated]

Samsung's Galaxy S II has been coaxed into recording higher-quality video than the 1080p Full HD it supports out of the box, with a modder better known for his work on Symbian cameras turning his attention to the Android smartphone. hyperX added continuous auto-focus and 720p 30fps recording to the Nokia N8 back in 2010, but has now persuaded the GSII's 8-megapixel camera to record 24 Mbit/s 1080p at 30fps complete with 44.1khz 192-bit audio.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4G in 2011; Galaxy S III in 1H 2012

Samsung may be popping bottles over its 1m Galaxy S II sales success in South Korea, but that hasn't stopped the company's engineers from planning ahead. Mobile comms president J.K. Shin told Dow Jones Newswires that not only was Samsung planning a 4G tablet for later in 2012, "an evolution of and an enhanced version of" the Galaxy Tab slates we've seen so far, but a replacement for the Galaxy S II in the first half of 2012.

Sensation vs. Galaxy S II: Does qHD make a difference?

Sensation vs. Galaxy S II: Does qHD make a difference?

One of the lingering questions after our HTC Sensation review earlier this week was just how much of a difference the smartphone's qHD 960 x 540 resolution display makes over the regular crop of WVGA 800x 480 phones. More pressingly, does Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus panel on the Galaxy S II, with its surfeit of sub-pixels, hold a candle to the Sensation. There's only one way to find out: some uber-high-resolution photos in a GSII/Sensation shoot out!

Apple wins early access to Samsung phones/tablets in copycat case

Samsung must hand over samples from its current and incoming smartphone and tablet range, along with marketing materials, to Apple's legal team as part of an "expedited discovery" process to see whether allegations of design similarity are accurate.

HTC Sensation Review

Once, Android's primary challenge was the iPhone: proving that Google's open-source platform - and the devices that ran it - were good enough to share retail space with Apple's groundbreaking smartphone.
