First images of the AT&T bound Samsung Rugby Smart show off its rugged form factor
No doubt about it whatsoever, but Samsung has been very busy in continuing to build its army of Android smartphones for AT&T. Most recently, the Galaxy Note LTE made some BIG headlines, but for some other upcoming models that aren’t necessarily on the same pedestal, like Samsung Rugby Smart, they’ve been kept under cover.

Previously expected to launch back on February 18th, the same time as the Galaxy Note, the Rugby Smart obviously didn’t come to fruition, but we’re actually getting our first look at it. Taking a quick look at the recent leaked images of the Samsung Rugby Smart, we can distinctively notice that it’s flaunting a very rugged form factor, which is quite fitting considering its name.

From the looks of it, the handset appears to sport physical Android buttons beneath its display, while its rear cover has this menacing look with its textured surface. Further cementing its ruggedness, there is a very prominent screw mechanism in place that firmly secures its rear cover. As for specs, it’s expected to feature a WVGA touchscreen, 512MB RAM, 1,650 mAh battery, and Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.

Looking over its specs, it doesn’t seem likely it’ll be breaking the bank seeing that it’s still expected to be priced at the $100 mark with a new contract. Of course, it might not have the allure of the Galaxy Note, but hey, this might be something appeal to those who want something extremely sturdy in getting through a rough game of rugby. At this point, we’re simply waiting for an official release date.
