MWC 2012: T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (SGH-T769) hands-on
The nicest Android smartphone found at Samsung’s MWC 2012 booth (in lack of the upcoming Galaxy S III flagship) is one that’s going to be released only in the US: the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (model number SGH-T769).
The Galaxy S Blaze 4G was officially announced back in January, and features HSPA+ 42Mbps, a 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, TouchWiz UI, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and MicroSD card slot. Some of T-Mobile’s services are obviously pre-installed, including T-Mobile TV and T-Mobile Video Chat (done via Qik).
At the moment, the S Blaze 4G runs Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. Most likely, an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be available at some point.
The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G will be released by T-Mobile sometime in March, for $149.99 on contract. Until then, check out the handset in the photos below:
