Photos of a Samsung Galaxy M Pro successor appear
Now here's a smartphone, the kind of which you don't see every day – an Android handset packing a portrait-style QWERTY keyboard. The device in the photos is the yet-unannounced Samsung GT-B7810 and it is shaping up to be a successor to the Galaxy M Pro. Not much in terms of specs is known at this time, but it is said that the smartphone comes with a 480 by 360 pixel display and a 1,200mAh battery. There's also a camera of some kind on its back, presumably of unimpressive quality. Android 4.0.4 is said to come installed out of the box.

It is speculated that the Samsung GT-B7810 could be a cheap, entry-level Android smartphone meant to launch in Central or South America. On the other hand, we might be looking at a handset that Samsung decided to scrap before launching. Either way, there's probably not a whole lot of people thrilled about a QWERTY Android like this.

Definitely agree. Coloring such as this, I don't think it will sell as much as the Asha phones. Even the cheap Blackberries look better than this.

No uglier than a Blackberry. For a texter who isn't interested in much data use (which you can still get killed with charges for) not bad.

Does samsung want to get sued by RIM???? How is this not a Blackberry-esque looking phone???? come on Samsung!!! Im a fan of this design as it works well for texting but damn this is almost identical to the BB Bold. Sammy must have extra cash to give out to RIM when they lose this battle in court. RIM could use the money though...

If this phone were my only alternative on Earth aside from a shatter-prone aluminum encased glass covered wi-fi feature phone, I would choose the fragile glass phone [of course]. ♥

Good Lord, even Blackberry shakes their heads at these types of phones these days.

I don't know how do you count this as M PRO successor as M PRO was never released. It was a ghost phone. Otherwise looks good but we really need a portrait QWERTY phone with 640x480 display finaly. I am surre the form-factor has its followers and I would like to see a modern offering.
