Coming October 12th are two new Android superphones on T-Mobile. Since T-Mobile hasn’t launched a new smartphone since the HTC myTouch 4G Slide and the HTC Sensation, they are overdue for a new flagship smartphone. Today, T-Mobile officially took the wraps off the upcoming HTC Amaze 4G and announced some more information regarding the Samsung Galaxy S II.
First, let’s begin with the HTC Amaze 4G, which features an advanced 8MP rear facing camera with 1080p video capture and several different shooting modes including SmartShot, PerfectPics, SweepShot, ClearShot HDR and BurstShot. In addition, it is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, runs Android 2.3.4, and has HTC Sense on top. Lastly, it includes a 4.3 inch qHD touch screen display and NFC capabilities. Starting October 12th, the HTC Amaze (which runs on T-Mobile’s 42Mbps 4G network) will be available for $259.99 on a two year contract.
Secondly, we have the Samsung Galaxy S II, which will also operate on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42Mbps network. In terms of processor speed, the Galaxy S II boasts a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. In addition, it features a 4.52 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, Android 2.3.5, and features NFC. On October 12th, the Galaxy S II will cost $229 on a two year contract.
T-Mobile will be holding an exclusive pre-order for both smartphones beginning October 10th and both smartphones will launch in-store and online two days later.
Currently, I live in the United States in the crowded, but enjoyable state of New Jersey. I first began blogging about technology in 2007, right on the precipice of the smartphone, netbook, and GPS boom. Not to mention Facebook and Twitter have started to become increasingly popular during this time period.
In terms of Google Android, I have been privileged to test and review many different devices and among my favorites are the Samsung Epic 4G and the HTC Droid Incredible.
