Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G may be headed to T-Mobile with 42 Mbps HSPA+ support

T-Mobile looks set to add another device to its already impressive Android-powered roster in the near future. It will be called Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (another mouthful), if a report from PocketNow is to be believed.

This handset will support 42 Mbps HSPA+, or, as T-Mobile still calls it, ‘4G’. And it will probably have a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. And it may just be the successor to T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II (blurred in the image below which does not depict the Blaze, it’s just a placeholder for now).

The Galaxy S Blaze 4G will launch later in the year, so that might just be the case. Yet if it were to be released sooner, it wouldn’t make much sense since TMo’s Galaxy S II hasn’t been on sale for that long.

The Blaze will also come with a Super AMOLED touchscreen of unknown size. It will have the model number SGH-T999, which is the highest number Samsung has ever used for a T-Mobile device. That sort of confirms its high-end nature – after all, Samsung didn’t have to choose the absolute biggest number it could in its own naming convention (T-Mobile-bound smartphones have so far been SGH-Txx9 models).

We’re hoping that the processor will magically turn into a quad-core unit before this thing hits the streets. Apparently, more details about the Blaze are going to be out very soon, perhaps even later today or tomorrow. So stay tuned.
