Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q Press Render Hints At T-Mobile Release Date


For the past few months, we’ve been picking up pieces of news here and there about the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q. At first, we only knew the phone by model number SGH-T699. A little later on, the first photograph of the model was released, revealing the hardware to be a QWERTY slider. Eventually, we learned that the T699 would be released as the Galaxy S Blaze Q, and saw a leaked document that claimed the phone would launch on August 15. As that date nears, a new press render of the phone has come out, and it also seems to support the idea of a release next week.

As you can see, the phone’s date in the image is set to Wednesday, August 15. That’s not necessarily an indication of when the phone might launch, but we’ve seen carriers do this kind of thing before, and since it lines-up with that previous leak, we’re felling pretty good about this one having some meaning behind it.

The hardware looks just like it did when photographed back in June, including the unusual retention of a physical home button on a US-bound Android. The phone will be a part of a new wave of similar relatively high-end QWERTY handsets all coming out about the same time; that includes models like the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE for Sprint. Along with a 1.5GHz dual-core SoC, the Galaxy S Blaze Q features a gigabyte of RAM, a 720p screen, and will arrive running ICS. Not too shabby, at all.
