Gallery: Upcoming Samsung phones for the US
posted by PhoneArena Team / Nov 06, 2008, 6:38 AM
We’ve got some updates on Samsung’s upcoming carrier phones, plus a number of new images, which, we hope, you may find interesting.
First, we are introducing you the clamshell for Alltel, SCH-R600 Hue II, and the AT&T slider SGH-A777. So far, the only information we could get our hands on is that the new Hue will offer removable covers and a 2-megapixel camera. As for A777, it is a mid-level phone with plenty of color options and a 1.3-megapixel camera.
We also have some new images showing AT&T’s Eternity A867 and T-Mobile’s Behold T919, both running the TouchWiz, which we have formerly seen in the Pixon and Delve. Previous information was pointing that A867’s camera should be 3MP one, but the new one is stating it will be capable of taking 5-megapixel pictures! Maybe AT&T demanded a 5MP phone, having in mind that T-Mobile’s T919 is also going to offer this resolution. We have some new shots of it as well, on which you can take a look at the phone’s browser.
Finally, here are three additional images of future Verizon Wireless phones: the Saga (I770), the OMNIA (I910) and the Renown (U810). You already know that the first two are smartphones using the Windows Mobile 6.1 OS and the third one will be a clamshell. Saga and Renown are global phones, supporting both CDMA and GSM.
Thank you Tuolumne!

Acutally he knows exactly what he's talking about, the rebate information shows for the phone on Verizon but thats it, BUT the rebate form is for releases in the 4th Quarter for Verizon. Calculate those Odds and add them with these new data requirements coming out and you have your self an Omnia in Q4...What I dont know is..Are we going to have the same 5mpx Cam they offerd over seas?Any chance of Wifi?

the eternity does not have a 5mp cam. at least i think/hope. i think it doesnt because that would throw off iPhone sales even more. already its going to throw them off since it'll be cheaper and wont require a data plan but here in the US, 5mp cams on carriers is very rare, the only one there is is the moto zine with tmobile, so customers would be like "oh wow, it doesn everything the iPhone does, but with a better camera and for way cheaper". i hope it doesnt because that would throw off tmobile sales and would essentially make the eternity and behold the same minus the minor differences in looks.

I wish At&t would announce release dates on there phones. I mean I have waited on the fuze for awhile and now i'm looking into this eternity but hardly any info is available as to when it will be released and even the fuze is just speculated to be launched on the 11th because for some reason at&t doesnt want to promote their phones.

The Eternity manual states 3mp camera, not saying its accurate but usually thats the case. http://www.samsung.com/us/supp
