T-Mobile Officially Announces Samsung Exhibit 4G and Gravity SMART

Hot from the press, T-Mobile issued a press release only a few moments ago announcing 2 new Android powered handsets from Samsung Mobile. First up is the Exhibit 4G which is the more “high-end” of the two, featuring a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, VGA front facing camera, 3MP rear camera, 3.7-inch 800×480 AMOLED display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and fully compatible with T-Mobile’s blazing fast 4G network, all for only $80 after a $50 mail-in rebate. It will also be available in both black and purple color options.

Next up is the Gravity SMART. This feature phone continues in the Gravity line of Samsung’s phones except this is the first to feature Android as the OS. Gravity SMART will come with a 3.2-inch screen, 800MHz processor, 3MP camera and Android 2.2 Froyo and even Swype if you don’t feel like typing on the slide-out full qwerty keyboard. The SMART will only set you back $70 after $50 mail-in rebate although, you can score it for $30 if you purchase it on T-Mobile’s website.

While none of these phones are going to make anyone’s jaws drop, its always nice to have options. With the Exhibit 4G only $10 dollars more than the SMART seems like kind of a no-brainer on which to choose although that full qwerty keyboard doesn’t look half bad. You can look forward to both these devices dropping sometime this month (although rumored for a June 8th launch date) on T-Mobile.

    this should be the last i hear about any phones coming out that don’t have duel core and/or 2.3 i know these phones have 2.3 but i have seen some out recently that don’t and there is no reason they shouldn’t have 2.3 now days. but the good thing is that now these phones are the “entry level” android devices and will work and provide a great working os.

    Argh, why can’t Samsung put out an Android phone that has decent specs AND a slide-out keyboard? First the Sidekick 4, now this?

    I guess there’s always the G2, but dang is that a bulky, ugly phone.

      Samsung Epic…?

        Sprint :(

          Htc DoubleShot will solve your qwerty needs. Dual core awesomeness ^_^

            Unfortunately, HTC makes the worst keyboards in history. Pressing the keys always feel like squishing sponge rather than actual buttons. Not to mention the fact it’s a 4 row keyboard… Just how hard is it to add a 5th row anyway?

          • http://beesbuzz.biz/ fluffy

            Ooh, somehow I missed that one. Looks nice. I’m fine with HTC keyboards, although they’re not my favorite. I wonder how big/heavy it is compared to the G2 or Nexus One (my two best points of comparison).

    • Zomby2D

      I’m not sure I’d call one of the thinnest and lightest phone around “bulky”.  As for aesthetics, I guess it’s a matter of personnal taste.

      • http://beesbuzz.biz/ fluffy

        Have you ever actually used a G2 and kept it in your pocket? Dang thing’s practically a brick compared to the Nexus One.

        Obviously a keyboard is going to take more space and weight than a phone without a keyboard, but it shouldn’t have to be THAT much bigger and heavier.

        There are quite a few sliding bluetooth keyboard shells for the iPhone 4 which don’t add much size or weight to the iPhone itself. If there were something like that only designed to fit a nice thin Android phone, that would probably be a nice compromise (and of course being completely removable is a plus).

        • Zomby2D

          Lol!  I read too fast and I tought you were talking about the GS2.

          It’s true that having a thin bluetooth keyboard, maybe something that could replace the back cover, would be very nice for anyone who want a physical keyboard.

    Look like nice entry level phones.  If they were free on contract i might be interested.

      They will be soon enough. Give it a month.

    First of all, “duel core” is a terrible idea, if the core is fighting itself, that would be kinda stupid, amiright? Now if you’re referring to dual core, that’s different. Problem is anything below Android 3.0+ which as we all know is tablet-only until Ice Cream, doesn’t really get any performance boost from dual core. I am glad to see these great entry-level options. Quit complaining, welcome people to the Android community who aren’t willing to spend $500 on a new phone. Who knows, they may fall in love and become a kernel hacker. Good job Phandroid, keep telling us about ALL the options, not just the ones that give fanboys an erection.

  • Khalid.H

    Why is it always the cheaper phones that get keyboards!? I smell a conspiracy!

  • Ipetloudog

    Eff you samsung. Instead of giving vibrant owners gb, I get to wake up to this BS.

    “oh, instead of updating our pre-existing valued customers, lets go with putting out shittier phones with 2.3 to make some more money because we’re stupid”

  • Blah

    Why cant they make a GOOD phone with a QWERTY like that?  WTF
