Samsung Galaxy Q and Galaxy S Pro to be QWERTY AMOLED Android phones; Galaxy Q due in the US by end of 2010

June 18, 2010, By Thomas Antony

Samsung’s latest entry to the high-end smartphone market is the Super AMOLED Samsung Galaxy S. But now word has come out that a QWERTY version of the same may be in the works. According to the Korea Times, Samsung is planning to bring out the Samsung Galaxy Q to the US by the end of this year. The Galaxy Pro S is coming to Sprint’s 4G network, and complete with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and Android 2.1, it will become the second 4G WiMax smartphone, after the HTC Evo 4G.

Pictured above is the Samsung Galaxy S Pro.

There have been a lot of high end Android-based smartphones coming to the market in the recent past and many more coming up. But something that has lacked in them has always been the hardware keyboard. Samsung seems to be keeping this in mind with their new smartphone.

The Galaxy S Pro is pretty similar to the Galaxy S, with 512 MB of RAM and ROM, Bluetooth 3.0, and TouchWiz UI. It is also expected to have WiFi b/g/n, and a 4-inch Super AMOLED display. No word on when the Samsung Galaxy S Pro might launch or at what sort of price, but the rumors are pointing to an imminent debut.

Apart from the addition of the QWERTY keyboard, nothing much else is known about the upcoming Galaxy Q. However, seeing what the Galaxy S is capable of, we can pretty much expect to get all the “Advanced Social Media features” with Samsung’s Social Hub for social network integration.

We already know that the Samsung Captivate (something like the Galaxy S) is heading to AT&T, and T-Mobile’s rumored to be getting the S themselves. Another QWERTY phone, the Samsung Galaxy S Pro 4G is coming to Sprint.
