Unannounced Samsung i5510 with Froyo, QWERTY Seen at IFA
While it sounds as if almost all of the focus at Samsung’s IFA presence in Germany was centered around its upcoming Galaxy Tab, Dutch site AllAboutPhones managed to spot a completely unannounced smartphone at the Vodafone booth branded as the i5510. Complete specs on this QWERTY slider have yet to be made public, although AAP was able to tell that the device runs Android 2.2 Froyo skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz graphical user interface. Also on board are Bluetooth, WiFI, a microSD slot, and fairly standard five-megapixel camera.
Unlike Samsung’s Epic 4G Galaxy S variant for Sprint, which boasts a five-row physical keyboard a la the Touch Pro 2, the i5510 only seems to offer four rows — giving the top row of keys dual alpha-numeric functionality. Since neither Samsung nor Vodafone had anything to say about this particular model, key information such as processor speed, price, and release date remain a mystery — although it looks as though Voda customers should at least keep this one on their radar.
