There’s a whole lotta Samsung going on today, and it’s certainly not all up there in the clouds. What we just revealed not 10 minutes ago was a list of new Samsung devices that included the Galaxy R, W, M, Y, and of course S. A couple of these we already knew about, the rest we’re going through here one by one. In addition to the post you’re in right now exploring the Samsung Galaxy W, aka the Samsung Galaxy Wonder, a High-Tier device, you’re going to get a brief look at a device which you’ll quickly realize is a real oddity – the Samsung Galaxy M Pro.
First let’s talk about the Samsung Galaxy W, this is a device that’s coming out in the UK at first – we even got a hands-on look at the device courtesy of UK carrier Three earlier today – and will hopefully be making it’s way to the USA soon afterward. This candybar device runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 1.4 GHz processor, a 3.7-inch WVGA 800×480 TFT LCD display, 14.4Mbps HSDPA capability, 5 megapixel camera on the back, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and a 1500 mAh battery inside. Social hub, Game hub, Music hub, Kies Air and more will be available inside.
In addition to the Three video from earlier today, you can see the Galaxy W in the terribly filmed video below:
Then there’s the Galaxy M Pro. This is Samsung’s first big Android QWERTY effort in a portrait mode device, this being what Samsung also calls a high-performance device at an economically sound price point. What you’ll notice right away (after seeing the lovely chicklet keyboard, physical Android menu buttons and middle joystick) is the software on the display showing the TouchWiz menu sitting up against the right side. Have you seen this configuration before? This basic bit is the first thing we also noticed when using the quite similar HTC Status – have a look at our full review of that product and get back here for the rest of these specs.
The Galaxy M Pro is tuned to business needs with a 9.97mm thin body, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 2.66-inch HVGA (480×320) TFT display, and a 1GHz processor. On the back you’ll find a 5 megapixel camera, the front has a VGA camera, inside there’s Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and a 1350 mAh battery to boot. This device will also be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will be filled with some neato apps like Cisco Mobile, Webex, and Sybase Afaria.
