Samsung Galaxy M Pro sequel pictured with BlackBerry-esque full QWERTY keyboard

Is anyone still fan of the “BlackBerry form factor?” If so, you may be inclined to know that Samsung has apparently been hard at work on a follow up to their keyboard-where-the-screen-should-be Galaxy M Pro. The newly leaked device was spied by Blog of Mobile where it was pictured in all of its old-school QWERTY glory, said to be running off the power of Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich. Looks like this is the same GT-B7810 that also popped up a few months ago in an FCC filing, although we aren’t quite sure where this one could be heading here in the states (my bet’s an MVNO). Samsung has a reputation of saturating the market with devices of every hardware configuration imaginable. Looks like we can soon add another to that list.

    Send these things back in time a couple years…you’ll sell ’em.
    Oh, and it should have been named the Prequel!

    I’ll pass

    If it weren’t for the all screen form factor, then I’d get one. But it’s 2013.

  • David Curry

    That’s a poor screen/bezel ratio. I don’t know what purpose this serves besides mocking RIM’s misfortunes.

  • Chris Chavez

    I want one but it has to be the size of the Galaxy Note 2. O_o

  • scoter man1

    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

    We’ll probably see this on a lot of prepaid carriers where high end phones are not an option.

  • DCTheTruth

    I hate to say this but throw this thing in the trash. And this is saying alot coming from a man that said he would never buy a phone without a keyboard. And I’m typing on my note 2.

    This phone was sent from the future to destroy all touch screen phones.

    Someone needs to make a high end portrait slider. Droid DNA with a keyboard similar to the one on the Blackberry Bold 9900 that slides out would be awesome.

    It’s a damn shame that no manufacturer has created a bad ass phone using this form factor.

    Contrary to popular belief, not everyone wants a giant-sized super-powerful slab form factor smart phone. I have several friends with BBs and Nokias in this portait-qwerty form, who send a lot of messages. This Samsung has a nice widely spaced keyboard – it might not be the prettiest phone in the world, but it looks like it will do the job it’s meant for very well.
