New name, new pictures for the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G

When the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q didn't launch on August 15th as expected, the possibility existed that the name change to the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G was behind the delay. Since the training document confirmed the nifty new moniker for the side-slider, the question is just when will this device launch via T-Mobile?  An official link to a Samsung website reveals some nice looking shots of the handset, along with labels so you know exactly what each part of the phone does. 

The one thing that we would have loved to see along with the pictures was the specs of the model. Right now, speculation has the device powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 and equipped with a 4 inch 720p HD display. 1GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera and Android 4.0 on board. If the delay in launching the phone was due to the name change, how long could it take to print up new boxes and documentation? And that leaves us scratching our heads and wondering if the price Samsung paid to 86 the old name and replace it with the new one will be worth it in the end.

why would you give it all the top notch specs and leave a 5mp cam?? im not complaining but its things like this that companies continue to do that make people second guess their devices.........If you gonna run a race then you gotta run it ALL THE WAY cant just go half way or 3/4 of the way........good thing this isnt too much of a problem like lack of battery or old chipset is......But still its nice to have a "finished" product so you dont have to second guess why you bought it or have the feeling of lack in some areas.......Just saying

O and with the new name being "Relay" Im gettin thoughts that it might have a really good battery.....could be just me, but i hope its name has relevance..... :)

This is (or was) supposed to be a sequel to the Galaxy Blaze. The Galaxy Blaze is the exact same thing as the GS2, just with a 4 inch SA screen and 5 MP camera. I'm guessing they're going after the same thing with the Relay, a slightly lesser model for a better price point, except with a keyboard.

No, Samsung doesn't make qHD displays in their own devices he meant. No Samsung device (to my knowledge) has a qHD display

Sorry I guess I may have you confused. I meant Samsung hasn't used qHD on any of their own devices. They went from 480 by 800 right up to 720p.

I won't believe that this phone will actually have 1280x720 resolution until it is confirmed. That resolution on a 4" screen would be the highest ppi on a phone to date. I'm sure it's possible, but I doubt Samsung would do it on a non-flagship device. If I was a gambling man, my money would be on 800x480.
