Samsung SGH-i780 possible Black Jack 2 spotted in Dubai

Did you like Samsung BlackJack messaging smartphone with QWERTY keyboard? Then you’ll probably like these news even more.

It looks like there’s Samsung BlackJack II type of phone already in the works, to be announced pretty soon. It’s called Samsung SGH-i780 for now and was showcased during Gitex trade show in Dubai.


I does not really matter how it will be called – Samsung BlackJack 2 or just SGH-i780, but if you are into full QWERTY keyboard phones, this one is so packed with cool features that it will be really tough to resist.

The specs for Samsung i780 include:

  • HSDPA/WCDMA/GSM/GPRS/EDGE conenctivity (900/1800/1900 +2.1GHz)
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Full Touch Screen
  • 3.2 megapixel camera
  • front camera for video calls
  • 2.55″ 320×320 px 65K color display
  • Built-in GPS with Navigation client
  • Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g
  • MicroSD memory card slot
  • Dimensions:115.9 x 61.3 x 13.3 mm

In addition to full QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen, Samsung SGH-i780/BlackJack 2 will have an optical mouse, which looks pretty similar to optical joystick found on Samsung V960 slider.

Here’s the video showing how optical mouse/touchscreen navigation on Samsung i780 works:

Samsung SGH-i780 should be launched in Europe pretty soon.

    This looks pretty tricked out with features and I like the form factor (an alternative to the Treos)… about the only thing I don’t like about it is the proprietary charger (some type of mini/micro USB would be better)… but I think all Samsungs are like that… come to think of it, even HTC phones are all proprietary (non-standard USB connector) now. Forget phones filling our landfills, the chargers are!
