Samsung Galaxy Reverb with model number SPH-M950 has recently been revealed, albeit unofficially, via Twitter and it is believed to be heading straight to the U.S. carrier Sprint. A photo was posted on EV Leaks’ account together with a few specifications; however, the account responsible for such leak seemed to have been brought down for some reason. But many tech and mobile bloggers were fast enough to be able to capture a screenshot of the leak (refer to the image below).
The pricing and availability of the device were not revealed together with the key features. If the information provided were true, then we will be seeing a decent device from Samsung soon. Looking into the specs, Galaxy Reverb stands pretty competitive in a market it’s targeting with Qualcomm MSM8655 processor which plays on a clockspeed of up to 1.4 GHz. It gets 768MB RAM and 4GB internal memory; not bad for an entry-level device.
Reverb sports a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen featuring a resolution of up to 480 x 800 pixels. It comes with two cameras, the primary gets 5 megapixel while the front-facing one gets 1.3MP. Lastly, Galaxy Reverb comes will be coming with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed. Many believe it is Jelly Bean-ready so in the next few months after its release, a roll-out may be done for the latest Android version.
While there is no information about the connectivity of this device, Sprint’s aggressive take on LTE would suggest that Reverb may just offer the fastest connection available for everyone today. However, basing on the architecture of the processor, HSPA+ may be the best it could provide. Other smartphones using MSM8655 SOC are HTC Droid Incredible, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, Motorola Triumph, etc. and none of these devices are LTE-capable.
Nevertheless, Samsung Galaxy Reverb may just do well in the market because of its decent specs and brand. But let’s wait for more details about this device in the near future.
