Full Qwerty Android alternative to Sprint's EVO 4G
for the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S Pro, an Android-based smartphone slated for Sprint.
These specs come from what Android Central calls a "tried-and-true tipster" who got his/her hands on an early prototype, but they have not been confirmed by Samsung. The handset is still in early stages of testing, so the following is subject to change.
On the hardware side, the Galaxy S Pro boasts a 4" Super
with slide-out Qwerty keyboard, a 1 Ghz Samsung/Intrinsity ARM Cortex A8 processor (similar to the processor powering
the iPhone 4
and iPad), 512 Mb RAM, 802.11 b/g/n, dual cameras (a 5 MP camera with 720p video capture rear-facing one, and a VGA front-facing), and a radio that supports
Sprint's 4G WiMax network
The tipster noted that the body was unimpressive because of a "plastic feel," but that it could be because it is only a prototype at this stage. The tipster also noted that the screen was sizably smaller than the
HTC EVO 4G
, but larger than the
As for software, the device was spotted running Android 2.1 with Samsung's own Touchwiz 3.0 customizations overlaid. Hopefully, the Galaxy S Pro will be running
-- or whatever other playful name the latest Android update has then -- by the the time the phone launches.
No word yet on pricing or a release date, but it will be a decent upgrade from Sprint's current full Qwerty Android offering, the Samsung Moment, and an alternative to the keyboard-less EVO.

Samsung has never updated an Android on any of their phones. Just ask me, running 1.5 on my Samsung Galaxy i7500. Hear me now, believe me later. You'll be on 2.1 forever. Samsung told me to buy a new phone. I said yes, but it won't be a Samsung. Here's more about Samsung.

Not true. I have Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 and Samsung released 2.1 update 4-5 months ago. I've read on forums that they plan to release an update to 2.2 froyo for this phone.
