Back in 2011, Samsung introduced a few Android candybars that featured both touchscreens, and full QWERTY keyboards. One of them was the Galaxy M Pro GT-B7800 (released with Android Gingerbread on board), and it looks like we now have a successor to it.
Meet the Samsung GT-B7810, which, aside from this model number, doesn’t have an official name yet. The B7810 has been approved by the FCC in June 2012, but it’s only now that photos of it have been published (see below).
Apparently running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Samsung B7810 looks a lot like the older B7800 model. Its features include HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, a landscape display with 480 x 360 pixels, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5mm headset jack, rear camera, 1,200 mAh battery, and MicroSD card support. We don’t know how much internal memory the new smartphone has, and neither the speed of its processor (the B7800 has a 1GHz single-core CPU, so the new one should be faster).
There is no word on when, where, or for what price the Samsung GT-B7810 will be launched. Samsung may want to introduce the handset in emerging markets, where, with an attractive price tag, it could be quite successful. We’ll let you know when we hear more on this.
