Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G

With just ten days to go until the MWC 2012 official kick-off, we are deep in the land of ‘’would’’, ‘’could’’ and ‘’should’’, with rumors of possible unveilings and releases piling up. Samsung has announced a while back that it won’t release the Galaxy S III in Barcelona, but that doesn’t mean the Korean electronics giant will come empty-handed in Spain.

In fact, Samsung might unveil a bunch of new Android-based gadgets at the end of February, three of these having just received Wi-Fi certification, according to reports from Japanese website ameblo. The first of the trio is by far the most exciting one, bearing the intriguing SGH-T999 codename.

This is set to sport an HD display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and might actually be that Galaxy S Blaze 4G unveiled a while back, but that still doesn’t have an official release date next to its name. On the other hand, that’s pure speculation, based on the fact that the ‘’T’’ in the phone’s codename most likely stands for T-Mobile.

What could contradict my speculation is the fact that the 9×9 code is thought to be reserved for high-end smartphones and ‘’999’’ might mean that this particular gadget is something more special than just a dual-core handheld.

The other two Samsung smartphones to get Wi-Fi certification are a complete mystery. Neither the SGH-I535, nor the SPH-L710 have before been mentioned or rumored to hit the market in the near future, so for the time being we don’t know much about them.

However, the SGH-l535 is said to be coming with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich straight to the Verizon Wireless shelves, so I for one am very excited to see what this gadget is all about. As for the SPH-L710, that should be a Sprint exclusive smartphone, but other details are still in a blur.

Hopefully, the Samsung execs will put us out of our misery soon and announce once and for all the official smartphone line-up for the 2012 spring and/or summer .
