Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G to hit US in March

Blaze mid-range handset proves it's not just the big guns that get 4G

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze proves a point that will soon be relevant here in the UK as well showing that mid-range handsets can have 4G as well

Samsung’s mid range Samsung Galaxy S Blaze will soon land in the US offering all the perks of a dual-core processor, a 3.97-inch super AMOLED screen and HSPA+ speeds at a very attractive price.

Samsung’s rapidly growing range of Galaxy series phones will receive a welcome addition in the form of the low-priced Galaxy S Blaze 4G on T-Mobile.

The device might not have as slim a figure as its siblings in the Galaxy S range, but it will be easy to look past those few extra grams when it ships on March 21st at the slim price of $149.99.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Specs

Shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 3.97-inch super AMOLED screen and a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, this wallet-friendly device is by no means shy in terms of capabilities.

Equipped to handle HSPA+42 speeds, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G might take a long time to ask for in the shop, but it definitely won’t take long to load up your emails or your favourite websites.

The Blaze has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with now customary HD recording capabilities and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for videochats and Facebook profile pictures.

Even though the WVGA resolution screen seems rather measly when compared to the higher market phones, the TouchWiz UI coupled with the zippy processor will make for a cheap, yet very worthy alternative.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Features

Android 2.3 Gingerbread might seem a little outdated now that phone manufacturers have started rolling out the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, but it still has plenty to offer.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Release Date

The Blaze 4G will ship out on T-mobile at $149.99 with a $50 mail-in rebate card on March 21st in selected stores and March 28th nationwide in the US. Considering that 4G networks are still only on their way to the UK, it’s not surprising to hear that Samsung have not confirmed any plans to bring the budget 4G device to the UK, but looking at Three’s plans for its 4G networks this summer, here’s hoping we can grab one soon.
