Last week, some leaked information gave us an idea of what upcoming smartphones to expect from Samsung. The manufacturer uncharacteristically responded to the rumors, saying that the information they reported wasn’t accurate. Then again, there were a whole lot of details made available, and we don’t know if Samsung’s talking specifically about just one or two specs that may be off. We’ve at least been able to confirm the existence of some of the models discussed, including the GT-I9210/20, thanks to finding pictures taken with those smartphones. Now the tables have turned, and we get the chance to see one itself, with the 9210 getting caught on film.
The model is supposedly called the Samsung Celox. It looks like it’s slated for operation in Korea on SK Telecom, and may make the leap to Japan on NTT DoCoMo, where we’re told it would be on the carrier’s LTE band.
The Celox is rumored to have a 4.5-inch WVGA display, a dual-core 1.5GHz snapdragon, and a gigabyte of RAM all very Galaxy S2-sounding specs, with a slightly larger screen. We’re not sure what’s going on with the Android buttons, since this new pic shows the traditional capacitive selection, while we’ve also seen what’s supposedly this model with a hardware home button, GS2-style. Just how it will arrive for retail sales, we can’t quite say, so we’ll be keeping an eye out for this model in hopes of further confirming hardware specs.
