The Samsung Galaxy W has surfaced and looks to be heading to T-Mobile as the Exhibit II 4G. The handset was first revealed back in August, when Samsung unveiled its new naming scheme for its smartphone product lines. The “S” series, as in the Galaxy S, represented its flagship line followed by R, W, M, and Y series in descending order, which marks the Samsung Galaxy W, or Exhibit II 4G, to be a mid-range device.
The Exhibit II 4G, whose name was revealed today by TmoNews, has also been codenamed Ancora in some markets and is expected to feature a 3.7-inch WVGA screen, a 1.4GHz single-core processor, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. Those are pretty decent specs for a mid-range device and it should slot in well between the Galaxy S II and the original Galaxy S.
The device will also support T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network and be priced at $99. If the details from a leaked T-Mobile roadmap are accurate, we’re likely to see the Samsung Exhibit II 4G launching on November 2. Five other handsets are also expected to launch that day on T-Mobile, including the HTC Radar, Doubleplay, myTouch, and myTouch Q from LG.
