Unveiled back in January at CES event, the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G smartphone was said to be compatible with high-speed 42Mbps HSPA+ data (where available), but a release date was not officially revealed. Now it looks like a handful of undisclosed T-Mobile stores will be getting their hands on the device by next week. The smartphone will be available in selected stores starting March 21st before launching nationwide and online March 28th.
Featuring a 3.97-inch Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy S Blaze 4G will be powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor. Other specs include 1GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera (720p HD video recording), a 1.3 MP front-facing shooter, and NFC. It will also have support of T-Mobile’s HSPA+42 for faster data speeds. However, the Blaze 4G will ship with Android 2.3, an Ice Cream Sandwich update is believe to happen later on.
The smartphone will cost you $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate, when you sign a 2-year contract as well. For more information on it, head to T-Mobile’s website.
