Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 S7710, 5.8 inch Galaxy Fonblet i9152, and new Galaxy Tab coming soon?
It’s going to be a very busy year for Samsung’s mobile division. Apart from getting ready to introduce the new Galaxy S4 flagship, and new Galaxy Notes, the South Korean company will also launch various other Android products.
One of the upcoming devices is the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 S7710, which will obviously come as the successor to the Galaxy Xcover S5690 that was released back in 2011.
The Galaxy Xcover 2 will run Android Jelly Bean (version 4.1 or 4.2) and, like its predecessor, it’s going to be dustproof and waterproof. Other features: 4 inch WVGA display, HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,700 mAh battery. The handset seemingly measures 130.5 × 67.7 × 11.9 mm, and weighs 148 grams.
Sam Mobile says the Xcover 2 S7710 – pictured below – will be officially announced at MWC 2013 next month, and should be launched shortly after that in two color versions (Titan Gray and Black / Red). Its price is not known, but it’s unlikely to be a high one.
Another Samsung handset that could be unveiled soon is the i9152 – which, according to Sam Mobile, is going to be called Samsung Galaxy Fonblet (that is a silly name, if you ask me). The Fonblet is supposed to sport a 5.8 inch display, like the Galaxy Player 5.8 from last year. Unlike the Player 5.8, though, the Galaxy Fonblet will have phone functionality. It might run Android Jelly Bean, featuring dual SIM capabilities. It’s not clear if the Fonblet will be showcased at MWC.
Finally, Korean website ET News has it that Samsung plans to unveil a new 7-inch Galaxy Tab at MWC 2013. Reportedly, this will have a Full HD (1920 x 1080) screen, a quad-core processor, and, of course, Android Jelly Bean. And that’s all we know about it at the moment. More details as we get them.
