T-Mobile finally announces the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, available in the “coming weeks”

T-Mobile has finally officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, although we’ve known about this device for a while now it took T-Mobile quite some time to finally unveil it. Either way, the phone should be a great mid-range device and offers some decent specs.

  • 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3 Processor
  • 4.0″ display
  • Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Mobile hotspot capable of up to 8 devices
  • S-Voice
  • NFC Capable
  • Same gestures as Galaxy S III
  • 50GB Dropbox offer for 2 years

Considering the device is a physical slide-out QWERTY phone, this will definitely appeal to many. Sadly, the press release had no word on the availability date on the Relay 4G, but it should be relatively soon as T-Mobile did state it’s “a couple weeks” away. Will this be a device that might interest you?

Full press release after the break.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q delayed and renamed


Remember the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q? This slide out physical QWERTY device was due to be out by August 15th, and while that has obviously gone and passed by, the device has been delayed and ultimately renamed by T-Mobile. Perhaps T-Mobile thought the Galaxy S Blaze Q was too ridiculous of a name? Well folks, the phone has been renamed to…. Wait for it…. The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G. I’m sure you’re thinking what I’m thinking, it’s not any better is it? Either way, the phone has been indefinitely delayed and no word as to when it will become officially available.

Let’s keep in mind that if we do put aside the odd name, it’s still going to be the most powerful physical slide out QWERTY device yet to date. If you’ve forgotten the specs, you can expect a 1.5 GHz dual-core S4 Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, a 720p (1280 x 720) display, and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Here’s my long shot wish; Perhaps T-Mobile and Samsung is delaying the release in hopes to have it launch with Android 4.1 TouchWiz Jelly Bean instead of ICS? I know, it’s a long shot that is probably far from the truth. But it would be nice, wouldn’t it?

Confusing name apart, any of you guys interested in this device? I know physical QWERTY’s haven’t died out just yet.
