T-Mobile’s Samsung Hercules (Galaxy S II), HTC Ruby and LG Flip II leaked
No less than three new Android smartphones have appeared in leaked photos today, and all of them are going to be released by T-Mobile in the US.
First of all we’ve got the Samsung Hercules, of which we’ve first heard back in May. The Hercules will be T-Mo’s version of the wildly popular Samsung Galaxy S II, and its first handset to feature support for HSPA+ 42Mbps. Other features should include: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 4.5 inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, and front-facing camera.
T-Mobile could launch the Samsung Hercules on September 26 – and Telus will probably do it before that in Canada.
The second leaked device is the HTC Ruby (we get to see its face now, unlike in the previously appeared photos). We still don’t know much about the Ruby, but it seems to be a nice mix between a T-Mobile myTouch and the HTC Sensation. Most likely, the Ruby will come with Android Gingerbread on board.
The LG Flip II should be launched by T-Mobile in mid-September, featuring a full QWERTY keyboard that integrates a secondary touchscreen display, and an unknown version of Android. We’ll bring you official details on these handsets as soon as they’re available.
