For many of you, QWERTY smartphones are a thing of the post, a dying design in the age of 5″ phablets and giant touch-screens that have come to dominate smartphone design. For those who still swear by QWERTY keyboards, your choices have been increasingly reduced as of late, as the “slab” form factor has seen just a handful of releases in recent memory, most notable are Verizon’s DROID 3 and DROID 4 designs. T-Mobile is hoping to capture a little more of the QWERTY magic with the future introduction of the as-of-yet-unnamed SGH-T699 model TmoNews got a hold of yesterday.
Unfortunately, we’re a little short on specs, but we do know this device runs Android 4.0.4, has a 5 megapixel camera on the rear, LED notification light on the front and tucked away inside rests an undetermined Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. We’re eager to find out more details as we hope this device leans more toward the high-end and not the low-end so QWERTY keyboard lovers can have their cake and eat it too.
