Meet the Samsung Exhibit II 4G

Meet the Samsung Exhibit II 4G
We’d like to introduce you to the Samsung Exhibit II 4G, formerly known as the Ancora and called the Galaxy W overseas, which has posed for some official press photos and appears to be heading to T-Mobile.

It was just a little more than a week ago that a T-Mobile roadmap leaked that gave us all some insight into their future offerings. The Samsung Ancora was on there and was believed to be the codename for either the Galaxy W or the Galaxy Y, both of which are mid-range Android devices. Now we can tell you that the Ancora is indeed the Galaxy W and it will be rebranded the Samsung Exhibit II 4G when it hits T-Mobile.

The Samsung Exhibit II 4G will feature a 3.7-inch display and a single-core 1.4GHz processor. Highlighting the device is Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface overlaying it. On the back of the smartphone is a 5 megapixel camera that can record video in 720p HD while a front-facing VGA camera is present.

The international version of the Galaxy W was very similar in appearance, albeit much smaller, to the Samsung Galaxy S II. It had two capacitive buttons and a physical home button. Due to a legal battle with Apple, the US versions of the Galaxy S II had to remove the home button and replace them with the standard Android keys. The same goes for the Samsung Exhibit II 4G.

Now that that Exhibit II 4G has posed for the press, it should only be a matter of time until it finds its way to shelves at T-Mobile stores. It should be a solid alternative to some of T-Mobile’s more expensive offerings given its rumored $99.99 price point. Tell us what you think.

The new touchwiz ui works great even on single core devices and especially if it has a overclock to 1.4 ghz. So it shouldn't be bad at all.

I have been waiting for a mid range phone with these specs. I don't need a 4.5" screen, or a phone the size of a small boat. I am thinking of doing the iPhone thing as it is easy to use and does all I need it to do. I currently like my T-Mobile service and need a GSM phone. I would hate to join the Death Star, and if this phone is as good as it looks, I may pick it up. Especially since T-Mobile has plans that I can use and not feel I am paying for more than I will use.
