A few weeks back, just ahead of the IFA 2011 trade show, the Korean manufacturer Samsung has announced a set of new Galaxy handsets powered by Android OS, including the Samsung Galaxy W. Europe based Three UK wireless carrier is set to launch the Galaxy W in this month, while the U.S. carriers haven’t still announced the launch details of the same handset. Looks like T-Mobile is gearing up to bring the Samsung Galaxy W handset to the states side. An handset called Samsung SGH-T679 has recently passed the FCC regulations, which is heading to T-Mobile and is sporting the caption “Connecting T-Mobile Users” on the back side of the device. And by looking at the above image, we can confirm that it is looking similar to the design of the Samsung Galaxy W handset.
Let me racap the specs of the Samsung Galaxy W handset. As a mid-range smartphone, it will be having 1.4GHz single-core processor, accompanied by a 3.7″ WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) display, Samsung’s very own TouchWiz interface, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, HSDPA 3G support at 14.4Mbps, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 1500mAh battery, Samsung’s Social and Gaming Hubs, as well as security software from Kies Air.
