You know how Samsung is giving away the Galaxy S to frustrated iPhone 4 users? It could be that they’re just making room for the newest hotness on the block, because here are the leaked specs and features for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Q.
It’s still a rumored device for now, but this Android 2.2 phone sounds like it could seriously be a hot one. For starters, you get a 3.0-inch Super AMOLED multi-touch display to go with the full QWERTY keyboard and optical touchpad. Some people are saying that this lends itself to a slider, but a BlackBerry-esque bar phone could very well be possible too. Remember the Samsung Epix? Maybe like that, but so much newer and nicer.
That three-inch display has a great 720×480 pixel resolution and it’s getting mated with a snappy 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 8.0 megapixel camera with LED flash and HD video, secondary 1.3MP camera for video calls, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, aGPS, mini-HDMI, microSD slot, and 16GB of internal memory.
That’s the good news. The bad news, for people on this side of the pond is that the 3G (HSDPA 7.2, HSUPA 5.76) doesn’t look like it’s compatible with our networks: 900/1900/2100 MHz. That makes it sound like the Galaxy Q is set for Europe, unless they offer a NAM version too.[BGR via Mobile Crunch]
