July 6, 2012- On Thursday, Samsung Electronics unveiled the social-minded Galaxy Chat, a 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Android smartphone. The phone will be available initially in Spain at the end of July, and then expand into other parts of Europe, China, Latin America, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia and the Middle East.
The design of the new smartphone is uncommon as it includes a QWERTY keyboard sitting below a QVGA display that is 3-inches in size. No processor manufacturer or speed was released. The amount of memory on the phone also was not released.
The new Galaxy Chat has 4GB of internal storage, a rear camera with 2-megapixels, Bluetooth, microSD expansion, Wi-Fi and a battery that is 1,200mAh.
Samsung knows users want to be more active socially through their smartphones and the new Galaxy Chat has a number of services and software to help that. Game Hun, ChatOn and AllShare Play are just three of the different software package available on the new Galaxy Chat.
Over the next week to ten days, the company said it would be releasing the carrier information as well as pricing. Like many of Samsung’s previous models, this one has been designed for the international stage and will not be appearing in the U.S. for some time.
