New Android handsets are expected to arrive on shelves in Canada in the near future, and at least one of them will be release on Rogers' airwaves, namely the Samsung Galaxy S Glide.
The new handset has just made an appearance into the wild, expected to arrive on shelves at the carrier with a sliding design, and with features that will make it worthy of the Galaxy S name.
In other words, it should be a high-end smartphone, the same as all the Galaxy S devices are supposed to be, based on Samsung's new naming scheme.
The Samsung Galaxy S Glide appears to be an appealing QWERTY slider, which is said to include most of the hardware specifications that the flagship Galaxy S II model arrived on shelves with.
For example, it is powered by a dual-core application processor clocked in at 1.2GHz, and is also said to include a 4-inch touchscreen display, which would be a Super AMOLED panel (not Super AMOLED Plus, as on the Galaxy S II).
The rumored specifications list for this device, available courtesy of MobileSyrup, also shows an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, complemented by a 1.2MP camera on the front, a great option when it comes to making video calls.
As usual, the unannounced handset is also expected to pack 3G and WiFi connectivity capabilities, along with Bluetooth, GPS receiver, microSD memory card slot, and the usual set of sensors that one can find in the high-end smartphones available on shelves these days.
However, the exact details on the hardware and capabilities of this mobile phone are still shrouded in mystery, and it might take a while longer before they are unveiled.
The mobile phone is expected to arrive at the wireless carrier towards the end of the ongoing year, and an official announcement on it will certainly emerge closer to its availability date.
