Samsung GT-S9500 codename leaks out, could be the Samsung Wave 3

Samsung GT-S9500 codename leaks out, could be the Samsung Wave 3
The Samsung GT-S9500 could be just another phone by Samsung, but taking a closer look at the previous model names hints at one thing – it could well turn out to be the Wave 3. The codename follows in line with the naming logic used by the Korean company as its first Wave, the flagship for Samsung’s bada platform, came out under the GT-S8500 model name. The Wave II followed suit later on with a bigger screen, but feature-wise it remained with no major changes and got the S8530 codename.

The Samsung Wave III on its part is expected to launch with the latest version of bada OS which is to bring a major overhaul to the platform and changing the first digit in the codename seems like thte natural thing to do. Unfortunately, SamFirmware who found the model number, didn’t have any additional data about a release date or price. However if we combine this with version 2.0 expected to arrive this July and a couple of handsets running it to follow suit later with the first one in September and the second one in November.
