Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G launching on T-Mobile in March

Another mid-tier Galaxy smartphone

On Wednesday, T-Mobile USA revealed that it will be launching a new addition to Samsung's Galaxy-brand lineup of highly popular Android smartphones. The device is expected to fit in as a premium mid-tier smartphone, right between Samsung's mid-range and high-end products.

Before getting into the hardware specifications, we wanted to exclusively point out and be sure to note that the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G is not a true "4G" phone, contrary to what the marketing geniuses at T-Mobile may have you believe. The device features a 3.5G HSPA+ radio and operates on T-Mobile's nationwide HSPA+ network which has a theoretical peak of 42Mbps, again nowhere near the peak of Verizon's 3.9G LTE network at 100Mbps (yes, Verizon's 4G LTE network is also a marketing stunt to say the least).

Nevertheless, the handset features a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 3.97-inch (800 x 480) Super AMOLED display, a 5-megapixel rear camera with 720p HD recording capability, a 1.3-megapixel front camera, a choice of 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a 32GB microSD card slot and the Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.

“The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G is loaded with rich features and services to keep consumers entertained and connected virtually anywhere they want to go,” T-Mobile SVP of marketing Andrew Sherrard said in a statement. “Paired with T-Mobile’s fast 4G network and our unlimited data plans, we’re making it easy for consumers to enjoy the benefits of 4G experiences at a price they can afford.”

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G will be available online and in stores in late March 2012 for $149.99 on contract.
