Samsung Captivate Glyde coming to AT&T next year?
That unannounced Samsung slider seen two times until now, and initially believed to be AT&T’s version of the Galaxy S II, has appeared in a new photo. And now it looks like the handset’s correct name has been unveiled.
According to BGR, the slider will be launched by AT&T as the Samsung Captivate Glyde – a pretty weird choice of name, considering the fact that Verizon introduced a slider called Samsung Glyde back in 2008. Regardless of that, it’s said that the Captivate Glyde would be released in early 2012. There’s no word on its price yet.
Since it will be out in 2012, the Captivate Glyde could come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 on board. But that’s just a supposition. What we know for certain about the new smartphone is that it has an 8MP camera on the back and, of course, a sliding QWERTY keyboard. We’ll bring more details as soon as we get them.
