T-Mobile has announced the official release date for the Galaxy S Blaze 4G smartphone that Samsung introduced at MWC. Made memorable because of the rather long name (and because it’s not the Galaxy S III that people wanted to see unveiled at the time), the Blaze 4G is sort of an in-between option for people who want “blazing” 4G connectivity on a phone with a mid-range spec and price.
The phone will be out on March 28th for $150 (after a mail-in rebate) with a two-year T-Mobile contract, featuring a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and a 5-megapixel camera that’s capable of shooting 720p video. The highlight on this one is the 4G support, which is listed to handle 42Mbps HSPA+ speeds.
It ships with Android 2.3 (boo!) coupled with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. No word on an Android 4.0 update yet, but the hardware should be good enough for the price.
