A new Samsung device named ‘Gogh’ has surfaced online showing off the device in all its glory. The new Sprint bound smartphone is also compared side by side with the HTC One X, which gives us a good idea of the size difference between the two handsets. The Gogh is said to sport a decent 4-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with pixel dimensions of 480×800, a 5MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, a 1.2 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 chip which interestingly is the same chip used in the American variants of the Galaxy S III, although they are overclocked to 1.5 GHz.
The Samsung Gogh or the Galaxy Gogh depending on how Samsung decides to call it, will also sport an NFC chip which is a prerequisite for most smartphones these days. The handset apparently runs on Android 4.0.4 operating system. The Gogh has 4G radios inside and will support Sprint’s newly launched 4G network in the country. So that should be something to look forward to for Sprint users.
The design of the phone is nothing to write home about though, with a minimalistic approach to the body of the phone as visible in the images. There are three capacitive keys at the bottom of the display, much like most ICS smartphones we see today. The back of the phone still remains a mystery, but we don’t expect it to be different from any other Samsung smartphone. It’s a mid-range device then, but what’s running under the hood is certainly on par with high end devices. The snappy Snapdragon S4 chip is known to give the quad core NVIDIA Tegra 3 a run for its money.
Since this is a leak, there’s no info on pricing or availability. There is a possibility though that the device is unveiled during the August 15 event, which is also when Samsung is believed to take the wraps off the Galaxy Note II. So we have more than one reason now to look forward to the event.
