Samsung Galaxy W for T-Mobile: First Press Shots

Here’s the SGH-T679 headed to T-Mobile, codenamed Ancora and better known internationally as the Samsung Galaxy W. At a likely price point of $99, the HSPA+-capable Ancora seems to bring a lot to the table, featuring a 1.4GHz single-core processor, 3.7-inch WVGA screen, and five-megapixel camera — a very solid mid-ranger.

One of the five handsets tipped by TmoNews to launch on November 2nd (alongside the HTC Radar and Doubleplay, myTouch and myTouch Q from LG), T-Mobile’s version of the Samsung Galaxy W once again Americanizes the button row by swapping in the mostly-unused Search key. And with Samsung and Apple now embroiled in a series of global lawsuits, we doubt that we’ll be seeing any central home buttons from Korea anytime soon.

Update: TmoNews has a name for this one: Samsung Exhibit II 4G.
