Last month we ran a story about the front-QWERTY keyboard Galaxy Q phone that Samsung reportedly plans to add to their Galaxy line. More specs have now leaked out about the likely BlackBerry competitor. 

The Samsung Galaxy Q will have:

  • 3-inch Super AMOLED screen (720x480)
  • 1 GHz Hummingbird processor 
  • 8MP camera with LED flash
  • 1.3 mp front-facing camera
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Android 2.2
  • 16GB internal memory (Micro SD expandable to 32GB)

Since it is being touted as a BlackBerry competitor, it will most likely have the screen up top with the keyboard directly below. It sounds like a very intriguing phone, and it will be interesting to see how many BlackBerry users may be swayed by the Galaxy Q. [MobileCrunch]

Galaxy Q specs leaked


Don't buy it... not a 720x480 resolution... It's not a standard Android res and it'll screw up too many apps with stuff being cut off...

Also 3" in a candy bar format with keyboard?? thats gonna be a pretty long phone... If they make it vertical slider, then it could be really special though.

lol I was about to say "Hold up! They've already got a newer/better Galaxy phone out?"

I don't expect that to happen at least until....November-ish

The Moto Q9h(Global)was a good phone.Too bad Moto never released the Q9 Napoleon.Seems like Samsung has fond memories of it's BlackJack series.Definitely a QWERTY Android market out there which doesn't like the current QWERTY sliders.Hard to argue a BB 9000-sized/styled Android device would be too big after the likes of the EVO and Droid X.

I gotta say, I don't understand this phone either. Why do you want to compete with Blackberry's form factor? It's terrible. There's a reason we're all typing on glass and full-sized keyboards now.

My wife wants this. She likes my Galaxy S (Captivate), but isn't fond of touchscreens and also isn't crazy about any of the current Blackberries to replace her Pearl.
