We’re still in the middle of pinching ourselves at the shiny, rich loveliness of the Samsung Galaxy S’ Super AMOLED display, so the thought of not one QWERTY version but two is almost too much for us to take. According to Korea Times, along with the Galaxy S Pro, Samsung are planning the Samsung Galaxy Q, another Android handset, to reach US shelves “by the end of [the] year.”
Beyond the hardware QWERTY keyboard there’s no indication of exactly what sort of specs we could expect from the Galaxy Q; however we can probably make some pretty safe guesses based on what the Galaxy S brings to the table. “Advanced social media features” are tipped, which likely means Samsung’s Social Hub that pulls in MySpace, Twitter and Facebook messages.
According to the Korea Times report, Samsung has been negotiation over the Galaxy Q with both AT&T and Verizon, together with potentially other US carriers. AT&T announced yesterday that they would be offering their own version of the Galaxy S, the Samsung Captivate. Meanwhile Samsung is also planning a QWERTY-equipped bada phone for release in Korea “soon”.
