After having been spotted in some early spy pics, Samsung has now gone ahead and fully unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Chat. Coming with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a full QWERTY keyboard, the Galaxy Chat will be available in Spain come July and then be rolled out to Europe, Latin America, Middle East, China, Southeast Asia, and Southwest Asia. Other specs for the Galaxy Chat include:
- 320 X 240 QVGA Display
- 4GB of internal storage with MicroSD card slot for expansion
- 2MP Rear-Facing Camera
- 1200mAh battery
- Wi-Fi 802.11 ( b/g/n ), Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 2.0
- Dedicated key to launch Samsung’s ChatON messenger
No pricing details have come with this announcement but it's noted as being competitive. As you likely guessed from the dedicated ChatOn key, Samsung will be preloading the service along with Samsung's Game Hub which offers a free selection of games available for download.
It's an interesting design we've seen a few times now but this one looks as though it won't be seeing a North American release for now at least. With that dedicated ChatOn key it looks like Samsung is wanting to take on RIM and their BBM service in some emerging markets with a low-cost Android device.
