Samsung Galaxy Q with foldable Super AMOLED HD display could get unveiled at MWC

About a year and half ago a Samsung Galaxy Q surfaced, but at that time it was a lower-end QWERTY phone. Fast forward to now and it features a foldable dual Super AMOLED HD (1920 x 1080) display. This one recently hit the GLBenchmarks with the model GT-B9150, so it’s definitely in existence, but will it really be the first Samsung ¬†phone to feature a flexible display?

Other specs include an Exynos 5 dual core clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, and a 3500mAh battery. It’s unclear of the screen(s) size, but in looking at the battery size, this won’t be small. It could come in at a total of 6-inches or two 3-inch displays. The most interesting news is that it’s rumored to be unveiled at MWC later this month. I’m not buying it. I think they might show a prototype, but Samsung would want their own event for something like this.

From the Rumor Mill: Samsung Galaxy Q Tablet(ish)

Question: Is an Android device with a 5.3-inch screen a really big phone, or a really small tablet? I lean towards the former, but it’s definitely a gray area. Regardless, the rumor goin’ ’round is that Samsung is launching a device at exactly that size, and they seem to think it qualifies as a tablet. Maybe it doesn’t have phone capabilities? Anyway, the Samsung Galaxy Q is expected to be revealed publicly at IFA in Berlin this September, and maybe we’ll get the full scoop then. Word is it’ll have a Super AMOLED screen and probably rock a dual-core CPU. Stick around, we’ll keep you posted as more news becomes available. In the meantime, hit the comments and tell us what you think the ideal size for a tablet is.

Specs for Samsung Galaxy Q leaked

Remember the article from awhile back on the Samsung Galaxy Q phone, the soon-to-be Blackberry killer with the front-facing QWERTY keyboard? Well, now it would appear that more specs have leaked into the open for this device. Sspecs will include:

  • 3-inch Super AMOLED screen (720×480)
  • 1 GHz Hummingbird processor
  • 8MP camera with LED flash
  • 1.3 mp front-facing camera
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Android 2.2
  • 16GB internal memory (Micro SD expandable to 32GB)

I have to be honest, these are some very good sounding specs… more than I would have thought would be included. Giving this phone a front facing camera, a 1GHz processor and a screen with that resolution may just push enough people over the edge to opt for the Galaxy Q instead of the Blackberry… but what about enterprise consumers? While Android 2.2 admittedly has many enterprise improvements, are they enough to bring business class customers over to the green side? Let us know what you think in the comments!
