Samsung is looking to launch another device on T-Mobile, this time known as the Galaxy S Blaze 4G. It will feature access to T-mobile’s latest 42MBps network HSPA+, and is looking to be the successor to the current Galaxy S II. Specs are rumored to include a 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, and Super AMOLED screen of some kind. Launch is expected to be sometime later this year, and we may see an announcement at CES. This would be the third device to the company’s 42MBps service, a boost they might need.
We’ve noticed two weird things with this phone, first, the fact that it uses the original “Galaxy S” brand name (versus the current Galaxy S II line). For all we know, it could be a last-gen handset looking to be a budget option on T-Mobile. Second, is that the rumored model number is SGH-T999. T-Mobile and Samsung typically use the T-xx9 series for their flagship devices, so we’ll have to see what’s next in the line of high-end Samsung smartphones on T-Mobile. Is it too soon to launch a successor to the Galaxy S II? Do you have interest in 42MBps HSPA+? Let us know in the comments below!
