Samsung Readying Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean-powered Full QWERTY Smartphone With Exynos 5250 CPU?
Even though Samsung recently announced two new smartphones Galaxy Music and Galaxy S3 Mini, the South Korea-based company didn’t overwhelm us with a large number of new terminals like it used to do. Well, a new and very interesting smartphone have been spotted on some Japanese websites, codenamed Samsung GT-B9150.
The source of this leak is talking about a Samsung smartphone with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean on board, dual-core Exynos 5250 CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz, WiFi and a display with a resolution of 1,280 x 672 pixels.
What surprised us is the letter B in the smartphone’s codename, a letter that is usually used by the South Korean company for its Android smartphones with full QWERTY keyboard. So, is this the mysterious Samsung Galaxy Q, that appeared as a rumor but it was forgotten in the meantime? Or maybe a new tablet, eve though the display resolution makes me think otherwise.
Even though most of the phone makers are avoiding to launch touchscreen models with QWERTY keyboard, this doesn’t mean that there aren’t certain customers out there who would consider such products.
As about Exynos 5250, rumor has it that it was created to underpin Samsung Galaxy Note 2, but it wasn’t ready on time for the smartphone’s launch. Anyway, I can’t wait to see the Mali T604 GPU in action.
Even though there are voices saying that Samsung Galaxy S4 will be underpinned by a 2 GHz Exynos 5250, I personally don’t believe that the South Koreans will place a dual-core CPU inside their next flagship. This article will tell you more about what Android Geeks thinks the South Korean phone maker will fit inside the Samsung Galaxy S4.
