Sprint’s Samsung D600 QWERTY Slider Revealed (Photo) [Update]
Supposedly this is the Samsung SPH-D600, a QWERTY slider destined for Sprint. The capabilities here are apparently a mixed bag: on the one hand you’ve got a powerful gigahertz-class MSM8655 processor from Qualcomm along with 4G WiMax broadband data, but then a screen of just 320 x 480 HVGA resolution (according to its user agent profile) and a camera which is uploading pictures at only 3.1 megapixels (which may or may not be its maximum resolution). You’ll also notice a front-facing cam and a row of physical buttons very reminiscent of those on the Sprint’s latest Android handset, the Samsung Replenish.
Connectivity-wise, you’ve got three-flavor 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi along with Bluetooth 3.0.
If the model number here sounds familiar, that’s because it’s pretty close to the Epic 4G‘s, which is SPH-D700. Does that mean that D600 will also be branded as part of the Galaxy line? We can’t say for sure, but with Samsung seemingly going full tilt on that naming convention, we wouldn’t be at all surprised.
Update: Coincidentally, this just passed through the FCC, WiMax radio in tow. Also of note is that the D600 will probably ship with the Gingerbread flavor of Android.
