QWERTY lovers rejoice! It looks like T-Mobile will be throwing you guys a bone with this newly leaked Samsung QWERTY slider. Codenamed the SGH-T699, it was once believed this device would be anything from the T-Mobile branded Galaxy Nexus, to the Galaxy S3 back when it showed up in a User Agent Profile. As it turns out, this is looking like a mid-level slider with a beautiful spacious 5-row (staggered) keyboard, 5MP rear shooter, front facing camera and comes out of the box running on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The previous leak suggested this would have a 720p HD display, powered by an older ARM11 based processor, but we’ll have to wait and see if that sticks. TMoNews is being told the device runs buttery smoove, and without any noticeable slowdown. Definitely looks promising. But what do you guys think? Anyone out there still have a soft spot for QWERTY sliders?
Let’s cross our fingers someone other than Motorola will give us a high-end QWERTY Android device. Maybe an upcoming Nexus device?
