Samsung Hercules Mobile Phone headed to T-Mobile; Specs and Price leaked
T-Mobile is set to get an assortment of amazing Android devices this year, a list that already includes the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation, and you can now add the Samsung Hercules to that list as well. We just got word of the upcoming Samsung Hercules, which looks like the most powerful droid the company has ever built, combing the best of both the Infuse 4G and the international Galaxy S II worlds.
It probably looks something like this: dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 processor, 42Mbps HSDPA radio, 1GB of RAM, Gingerbread and a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. Are we near the mark? So is Samsung if this latest rumor is to be believed, as the best we’ve just described is reportedly coming to T-Mobile under the proud name of Hercules.
Samsung Hercules is said to support the 1700 MHz AWS 3G band and if the T-Mobile and AT&T merger goes through it will also come with 850 and 1900 MHz 3G. The great news is that the smartphone will sport HSPA for up to 42Mbps on the downlink and up to 5.76 Mbps on the uplink. The LTE-packing HTC Thunderbolt aside, this is the fastest network data transfers rates we have seen so far.
It will also come equipped with an 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video capture, MHL & NFC support and all the swagger a king among geeks is ever likely to need. This is usually where the “if only” comes in, but we’ve already tried our best and we’re drawing a blank here. This is going to be an awesome phone and if it shows up for the rumored $350.
No word on a release date yet, but we will keep you updated on the status of the device.
