T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Amaze 4G launch dates announced
T-Mobile USA has officially announced the launch dates of the HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II – its latest 4G Android smartphones.
Both new handsets will support T-Mo’s upgraded HSPA+ network (42Mbps), and should be available starting October 12, with presales kicking off two days earlier, on October 10. The HTC Amaze 4G will cost $259.99, while the Samsung Galaxy S II is going to be a tad cheaper ($229.99) – of course, both prices require a new 2-yr contract agreement.
Seen earlier today in two press photos (and pictured in detail below), the HTC Amaze 4G will come with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, 4.3 inch qHD display, Sense UI, NFC, and a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor. According to T-Mobile, the handset “features the most advanced camera experience of any smartphone”, as it sports a 1080p-capable 8MP shooter that has “a backside illuminated sensor for improved low light performance, zero shutter lag and a dual LED flash”, and other “advanced digital camera features.”
The Amaze 4G will be available in two color options: black and white.
The Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile will run Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, featuring a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus WVGA display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera.
T-Mobile has also announced the Sonic 4G Mobile HotSpot – its fastest mobile hotspot ever. Made by Huawei, the Sonic 4G provides access to T-Mo’s HSPA+ (42Mbps) network “for up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices including iPads, music players, gaming consoles, laptops, cameras and eReaders, among other devices, all from virtually anywhere.” The new mobile hotspot will be out sometime in October for an unknown price.
