T-Mobile Samsung Memoir detailed specifications and press pic

Samsung leak week continues.

It seems that  information about no less than 10 new unannounced Samsung handsets has leaked out to the web this week.

Well, today we’ve got a tip of our own with additional info on the upcoming and already pretty well known T-Mobile Samsung Memoir.

The tipster sent us a press/promotion pic and what he claims is a full list of T-Mobile Memoir specs & features. The spec list looks legit, but it is totally unconfirmed and contains some contradictory data so take it with a grain of salt.

Here we go:

And here’s T-Mobile Samsung Memoir T929 spec and feature list:

  • Standby Time: Up to 300 hours (standard battery)
  • Hearing Aid Compatibility = M3

As I said above, T-Mobile Samsung Memoir spec list looks pretty complete and legit. The problem is that while tech specs say that the phone supports 3G/UMTS Bands IV and I, the data feature list describes only GPRS/EDGE data capabilities. Such a potentially prominent feature as HSDPA data connectivity is not mentioned at all. As there is no mention of GPS too.

GPS absence can be explained easily enough – Samsung Pixon, which looks like a European version of this phone also did not advertise it’s GPS prowess.

The lack of HSDPA – well, that’s either the omission in this spec sheet, or Samsung Memoir on T-Mobile will come with high speed data function turned off. Given the newness of T-Mobile’s 3G network and that none of the leaked info emphasizes high speed data features on such a high end phone, that’s not implausible too.

Anyway, we should know all the details in a few weeks. Stay tuned.

    Does anyone know if this phone will allow corporate email, like the Dash and Wing do?
