In any event, there’s nothing different with the smartphone’s cookie cutter packaging as it sports the usual orange, white, and blue colors normally associated with AT&T. On the front, there’s a spiffy looking image of the handset in question with the AT&T and Samsung logos adorning its bottom corners. Flipping it over to the rear, we’re greeted with yet another photo of the lovely looking handset – but this time, we find a few highlights regarding this beauty. Specifically, it mentions that it offers 4G HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Wi-Fi capable, Android, and dual cameras.
Inside, there’s nothing out of the ordinary as it’s packaged along with the usual set of documentation, wall charger, 1,650mAh battery, and microUSB cord. Sadly, you’ll need to purchase an optional MHL adapter in order to take advantage of the handset’s video-out capability.
During Samsung’s unveiling event in late August, we managed to check out the handset in full form – and from our quick look, it’s probably the most faithful to the original’s design. Additionally, it features a 4.3” WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.2GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos processor coupled with 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, 2.0-megapixel front facing camera, 1080p high-definition video recording, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and TouchWiz running on top of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.
Naturally, October 2nd isn’t too far away from now, but we’ll be taking this handset for a spin to get a good feel on how it performs. So in the meantime, you can ogle over the handset by checking out our unboxing photos and video.
