Samsung announces Galaxy Chat messaging phone for release this month

Remember the Samsung GT-B5330 that popped up earlier this week? Samsung has made the device official with the announcement of the Galaxy Chat. The Galaxy Chat, as you might expect for a phone focused on messaging, is on the lower tier of Android 4.0 devices and features a 3.0-inch QVGA display, 4GB of internal storage (plus microSD expandability), and a 2MP camera. On the plus side, the phone does feature many of the user interface improvements found in the recently released Galaxy S3. As the name implies, Samsung is pushing their ChatON service with the Galaxy Chat, and the phone comes preloaded with the messaging software.

The Samsung Galaxy Chat will be available in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia later this month. Pricing was not announced but it is said to be “competitive.” Based on the specs, we don’t expect interested parties will have to throw down beaucoup bucks.

    wow, I can’t think of a more blatant copy of the iphone than this one. Law suit pending.

      Apple: We patented rectangles with a resemblance to a bar of soap!

    blatant iPhone copy… what a troll….iPhone never had a physical keyboard, nor such a small screen but good luck with that lawsuit…

      I can only assume you’re referring to Rickerbilly’s comment in which case I suggest you review the term “satire” and perhaps exercise a bit more caution before jumping to conclusions.

    wow, what a troll,
    first of all the iPhone never had a keyboard
    second of all, the iPhone never had such a small screen
    kind of hard to be a copy of something when none of the features are shared between the two phones….unless Apple now has a patent on cell phones in general….

      I think he was joking…

    Samsung Captivate Glide is better overall. This would be better if it’s cheaper.
