First look: Samsung Intercept Android 2.1 phone for Sprint

Samsung Intercept Android 2.1 smartphone for Sprint

You know, I’m starting to get the feeling that Samsung is turning into the next HTC. They release a series of great looking phones, just to be sure of there place in the world, but many of them are starting to look really similar to one another, despite having different product names. The latest in this line is the Samsung Intercept. Affectionately known as the Samsung Moment 2 to those in the know, the Samsung Intercept has been leaked (or “intercepted” if you prefer) and looks pretty good from here. For starters, this handset will reportedly launch with Android 2.1. That’s not quite 2.2 Froyo or 2.3 Gingerbread, but it’s pretty good.

The form factor will be a familiar one. You get a large 3.2-inch touchscreen (probably AMOLED), which is then accompanied by a slide-out four-row QWERTY keyboard. It’ll get the usual assortment of Android goodies, to be sure, and there’s probably a camera in the back too.

To be available in your choice of pink or grey, the Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 is slated to show up at Sprint on July 11. That’s less than two weeks away, for those of you playing from home.

  • Samsung Intercept

    Is there a summary of what is completely different between the Intercept at Android 2.1 and the Second at Android 2.1? The hardware appears to be like to be much the identical, though the slider keyboards are different. As a Second proprietor, the Intercept leaves me dissapointed with Samsung as the Intercept seems to have a Android improve path whereas the nearly similar Second doesn’t (left behind at 2.1).
