T-Mobile Corrects Major Error In Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G Announcement

Now that the iPhone 5 fever (have you caught it?) is starting to die down a little, there’s plenty of other smartphone news to check out. One of the more low-key Androids to be announced so far this month is Samsung’s Galaxy S Relay 4G, a QWERTY slider for T-Mobile. The carrier formally confirmed the phone last week, but it turns out that one of its key specs was given incorrectly.

We’d been following this guy for a while, starting back when it was known as the Galaxy S Blaze Q. With a 720p screen and 1.5GHz dual-core SoC, it sounded like a pretty decent mid-range device, especially if you’ve got a penchant for hardware keyboards. When it came time to officially announce the phone, though, its specs included a Snapdragon S3 component instead of the S4 we’d been hoping for.

That sounded like quite the odd choice, considering this is 2012 and not 2011, and substantially dampened our enthusiasm for the phone. It turns out that was all a big misunderstanding, and T-Mobile is now updating its info on the phone to properly reflect the inclusion of a modern S4 chip.

The S4-packing Galaxy S Relay 4G goes up for sale on September 19, where it will sell for just about $150 on-contract.
