Android OEMs have always had a knack for selecting clunky, awkward names for their phones, and the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q looks set to carry on that tradition on T-Mobile’s airwaves. Based on the AccuWeather widget shown in the press image, it looks as though the new QWERTY slider may be arriving in just a couple of days.
Specs haven’t been officially revealed yet, though there’s some speculation that the Blaze Q may be a QWERTY-fied version of the Epic Touch 4G with upgraded internals. Rather than a 1.2GHz dual-core chip and an 800 x 480 display, for example, the Blaze Q is expected to ship with a 1.5GHz dual-core and a 720p display.
Samsung may use one if its own chips, too, though probably the Exynos 4212 and not the new Exynos 5250 superchip. As for the display, there’s reason to question whether Samsung will be able to push the resolution that high. With all that extra bezel, it’s unlikely that the display will stretch more than four inches. Samsung has yet to use a 720p panel below four and a half inches, so this would either be its first — or the Blaze Q will be sporting a lower-resolution display when it arrives.
Other anticipated features include 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a rear-facing camera that can capture full 1080p video, HSPA+ support, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich — which means you’ll need to wait patiently for an OTA update to Jelly Bean if you decide to pick up the Blaze Q.
