While there were few surprises when the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 swung past the FCC, we didn’t expect additional tablets all that quickly. However, we’re already looking at one today: a Samsung SM-T310 (the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is the SM-T210) has just reached the US agency carrying 16GB of storage, Bluetooth and WiFi. The filing doesn’t reveal just which product family is involved, but the 9-inch diagonal frame is about in line with that of an 8-inch tablet that isn’t just a clone of the Galaxy Note 8.0. To us, that suggests the tablet may instead be a rumored Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 that would drop the S Pen and, by extension, the price. Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything beyond incidental certifications and support pages for the SM-T310, but the FCC appearance hints that we’ll learn considerably more in the near future.
Samsung is in a unique position among Android smartphone manufacturers, which allows it to create devices like the Galaxy S4 Zoom, a rumored S4 variant that showed up for certification at the Bluetooth SIG this week (via UnwiredView) as the “SM-C101.” The S4 Zoom is reportedly going to resemble the unreleased S4 Mini, but boast a 16 megapixel rear camera with optical zoom.
Optical zoom is really the one remaining advantage that point and shoot cameras have over smartphone shooters, at least from a hardware perspective. Other companies, including LG and Huawei have been working on building smartphone optical zoom tech, too, but if Samsung brings this one to market with its rumored 10x zoom, it’ll be the strongest one currently available, beating the Nokia 808 PureView’s measly 3X power.
Samsung has the luxury of experimenting with different form factors, and using its flagship branding to offer a range of devices that potentially cut off competitors by giving users a complete device to match ever competitive advantage. Like the S4 but want a more manageably sized screen like on the iPhone 5? Get the S4 mini. Like the S4 but want something a little better able to withstand the environment and harsh conditions like the Xperia Z? Get the rumored rugged S4 variant. Want an S4 but with the best smartphone camera in the business, which exceeds even Nokia’s most ambitious efforts? Get the S4 Zoom.
Samsung’s lineup variety strategy may be more about blocking the competition and casting a wide net than anything else, but a big zoom on a mobile camera will have a lasting effect on the industry if it goes over well and produces impressive results. More importantly, it could bring about even bigger changes for the dwindling standalone point-and-shoot camera market, which means other smartphone OEMs won’t be the only ones watching to see if and when the Galaxy S4 Zoom makes a splash, which could happen as early as June according to release date rumors.
Ready for round two? Nokia is: it’s put the Galaxy S III and its own Lumia 928 back in the ring,challenging Samsung’s handset to an audio recording duel. The company’s latest video tasks both phones with capturing a musical performance in a New York subway. Naturally, Nokia uses the clip to promote the Lumia’s strengths, flipping back and forth between the 928′s clear, undistorted audio, and the much noisier recording captured on the Galaxy S III. A graphic overlay jumps and dips with the volume, peaking into the red distortion threshold whenever the view switches to the Samsung phone’s perspective. “Nokia Lumia retains audio quality under high volume recording with no distortion,” it reads, and indeed the Lumia’s footage does sound clearer by comparison, if a bit muted. What Nokia’s handset lacks in volume, however, it makes up in balance — not only is the audio free of distortion, it also lacks the echo picked up by the Galaxy S III. Smartphone audiophiles with a discerning ear can find the full video after the break.

The first footage from the PureView camera aboard Nokia’s Lumia 928 is up on the phone’s official landing page, showing how it compares against the iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S III at shooting video on a New York rollercoaster. Unsurprisingly, the results definitely appear to favor the 928 — colors appear more saturated, with sharper focus and fewer blown-out highlights than the competition. It’s important to keep in mind that this is a single test from the phone’s manufacturer, but so far so good.
Other details include the rumored 8.7-megapixel resolution and optical image stabilization, keeping it in line with the camera on last year’s Lumia 920. In fact, it’s still not clear what, if anything, is different between the…
Now that the Lumia 928′s mere existence is official, Nokia’s posted a video comparing its footage-shooting chops against the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III in low-light conditions. Naturally, the folks in Espoo are showcasing just what PureView tech, paired with a Carl Zeiss lens and proprietary OIS can do. Head past the break to catch the video in its entirety.

Just over a month ago, CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik left Samsung, with a parting elucidation about the Galaxy S 4. The very same phone was expected to not be supported by the CM crew, leaving prospective buyers and fans of the firmware to consider their loyalties. Hope was restored when Kondik teased an image via Google+ showing the about screen for CM10.1 on T-Mobile’s version of the handset (SGH-M919). Now, he’s confirmed it’s here (and quickly done, too), with word that other variants (I9505 etc) will follow as and when hardware is sourced. Kondik claims that, while not quite perfect, that the port is complete enough to provide all core features, including, at some point, support for Android’s hover events. The nighties are available now, so if you’ve got the right mix of Magenta and Cyan, keep an eye on the usual sources for the goods.

Samsung’s launch of the Galaxy S 4 hasn’t been as coordinated as the company would like, but it’s making some amends with today’s launch of its flagship phone in Canada. In one fell swoop, most of the larger Canadian carriers are now offering the 16GB model for a typical $ 200 on a 3-year contract. Bell, Rogers and Telus (as well as their sub-brands) are covering much of the country, while more region-specific carriers like Eastlink and Videotron are also joining in. Carriers like Mobilicity and Wind Mobile aren’t yet included, however, and supplies are known to be tight — we’d ask about stock before making a trip to the local store.
