Samsung Galaxy Chat is announced – Ice Cream Sandwich flavored, packs a QWERTY keyboard

0. phoneArena 04 Jul 2012, 08:48 posted on

Remember that low-end Samsung QWERTY smartphone that leaked a couple of days ago? Yeah, the device has just been announced officially. It is called the Samsung Galaxy Chat and it is an entry-level Android 4.0 device made for people who still favor physical keyboards over those pesky virtual ones...

i think it's cool. i like the design so much!

too bad it's too low end for me.

i really am hoping BB embraces Android and make a white Touch and Type BOLD with a 3.5 or more screen... RIM, embrace your destiny!

Awesome! I've been waiting for a Samsung Galaxy with Android phone that has a full QWERTY keyboard. I'm sure this doesn't hold a torch to the Samsung Galaxy S III, but I am still excited about it. I, like many others, am not so good with touch screen devices (with the exception of my Samsung Galaxy Tab - but that's a different story.) I'm almost certain this will be my next phone. I just hope the keyboard buttons are a good size.

density), cpu 800 MHz

Why the hell this phone has lower specs than the Original Galaxy s and can run ICS + Touchwiz ?
Even the desire C can run sense 4 + ICS .
Please dont be lazy and update SGS1 !

please dont be lazy and do it yourself :).

The Nexus S is getting 4.1, which is the near identical sister to the SGS1. That means ports and ROMs will be shortly behind as always. Devs are already at work on it. The 4.1 source code was just released less than 24 hrs ago so be patient.

Just sad to see Samsung abandon old phones . Instead of keep releasing new ones they can just keep older devices like the original galaxy s . Still using your Tmobile galaxy s1 ? Why don't get a galaxy nexus like I do now

are you kidding?
this phone is terrible! 800 mhz, qvga, 2 mp camera?
why would anyone want to use ics on that thing? absolutly terrible experince

and with a 1200 ma battery, this is going to last like 6 hours then its going to be done, espioecially with ics
