While the official specs are still not available, the rumored specs don’t sound all that terrible. Locking in a Qualcomm S4 dual-core processor at 1.5GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage Ice Cream Sandwich, a 720p HD Display and of course the five-row QWERTY keyboard hidden underneath. According to the press image that was leaked out, you also see that it has more of a Galaxy S III look with the center button as well.
As for the August 15th release date, more speculation. In the past though, press shots that get out that have a date set in the widget tend to be fairly accurate of when the announcement or the launch will take place. We have seen it in the past with previous Samsung and HTC devices. Kinda makes it fun for us and also helps get device news in.. well, the news. It also doesn’t hurt that we have seen other internal PC photos with the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q listed as launching August 15th.
While this might not be the device for everyone, it definitely will appeal to a lot of people. Those that want some more power and better specs without sacrificing the physical keyboard. It is no Galaxy S III or the rumored HTC One X+, but it has its appeal over the new myTouch device put out from Huawei. Not to mention it looks a little better, in our opinion anyways. With August 15th right around the corner, we fully expect T-Mobile to make the official announcement very soon. Then we will know if the spec rumors are true or just wishful thinking.
