Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G scheduled to hit T-Mobile's shelves on September 19Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Less than a week ago, T-Mobile formally introduced us to the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G and gave us a spec rundown of the new QWERTY slider. Two crucial details missing from T-Mobile's announcement were the Relay 4G's launch date and price, but today the magenta carrier shared those tidbits of information as well. In a brief statement sent to TmoNews, T-Mobile has revealed that the Galaxy S Relay 4G will be launching on September 19. Pricing for the new Galaxy S handset will be set at $149.99 with a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year contract.
For you T-Mobile folk that'd like a spec refresher, the Galaxy S Relay 4G features a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor, 42Mbps HSPA+ connectivity and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It also features a five-row physical keyboard, which ought to be one of the phone's main draws considering that T-Mobile's current selection of hardware keyboard-equipped phones is somewhat small. Anyone planning on getting their QWERTY on with the Relay 4G later this month?
