Last month T-Mobile decided to announce the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (following leaked information that said it was headed to the magenta carrier), but did so without saying much about the device, and without giving any hints about its price or release date.
Here we are a month or so later, and T-Mobile has thankfully given us more details. The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G will be out sometime in March, and it will cost $149.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate).
The Galaxy S Blaze 4G has a 3.97-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, a Qualcomm dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, a 5 MP camera with 720p HD video recording, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, and 42 Mbps HSPA+ support. So it’s not the flagship device many were hoping it to be, but it still is a decent contender, especially if you care more about HSPA speeds than camera quality, and like your smartphones to be pretty affordable. Unfortunately though, the Galaxy S Blaze 4G will launch running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and not Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system that’s been out for about three months now.
We’re expecting T-Mobile to put out yet another press release about this handset in the future, one which will contain the actual release date – so stay tuned for that.
