The Samsung Galaxy Blaze series of phones just got a new upgrade. The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q, which has a QWERTY keyboard, is soon hitting the T-Mobile stores. As expected, the handset will have a dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU. There will be 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Users are also getting a HD display of 720p and the phone will run on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The phone comes with high connectivity features including support for HSPA+, clocking 42Mbps speeds.
It is not almost official that the new Blaze Q will be arriving on 15th August on T-Mobile. That date has been flying around the net as the possible release of a QWERTY from the carrier. Since we know the handset, and the carrier, it doesn’t hurt to put also in the date.
Expectation for the Galaxy S Blaze Q is that it will be a solid smartphone. When a device packs a slide-out keyboard, it means that the manufacturer is aiming for power users or people who need more than the touch-interface. The S4 processor should also pack some 1.5 GHz of power to support a rich HD experience with videos and apps.
Although the speeds are not 4G, they are light ahead of any of businessperson’s basic needs. Judging by how its processor was received, the Galaxy S Blaze Q will be a premium addition to the carrier. We expect support for MicroSD as in other Samsung handsets. This should be up to 32GB. Otherwise, its 16GB internal storage in this age of Dropbox and other cloud storage solutions is more than enough.
Unfortunately, we don’t expect a Gorilla glass display. I hope that the extra keyboard slide out will not make the phone so thick to handle. Otherwise, it might not go well with T-Mobile users. Remember this is only the US version. Later, we expect more information on the phone as other carriers announce it. Samsung might also add some more details about it as we go along. The exact size of the camera remains unknown, but it should be not less than 5-megapixels.
Well, appreciating what we already have is good. The five rows slide-out QWERTY looks very comfortable. In addition to the Wi-Fi connectivity, customers also expect to get it as a subsidized price on the T-Mobile contract. Music lovers and those interested in adding accessories to their phone will have Bluetooth support at their disposal. Let us wait and see!
