Several days ago Samsung confirmed that an unannounced Galaxy Rugby Pro smartphone would eventually make its way in the United States via AT&T carrier.
However, the South Korean handset maker did little to offer details on the smartphone’s availability and pricing options in the United States.
There’s more to it as folks over MobileSyrup
recently uncovered new info on the illusive Samsung
Galaxy Rugby Pro. It appears that the device will be launched in Canada as well, but under a slightly different name.
A Bell internal document leaked online confirms the smartphone will be launched in Canada on November 1 as Samsung Galaxy Rugby LTE.
Although we don’t have the full specs sheet of the AT-T-bounded Galaxy Rugby Pro, it appears that Bell’s version will be delivered with PTT (push to talk) capabilities and LTE support.
Those unaware should know that Bell Canada plans to launch its PTT network in the first half of 2013, but the addition of a new LTE smartphone to its portfolio is more than welcomed.
So far, we have learned that Samsung Galaxy Rugby LTE, model number SGH-I547c, will be shipped with Android 4.0 Ice Creams Sandwich operating system out of the box, though we suspect Samsung will offer a Jelly Bean update as well.
On the inside, the Galaxy Rugby LTE
looks pretty impressive, as the device is equipped with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz.
As we already mentioned earlier, this is a rugged device that has been MIL-STD-810G certified. It is resistant to salt, dust, humidity, rain, vibration, solar radiation, transport and thermal shock.
The Galaxy Rugby LTE sports a 4.0-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution. It also packs a 5-megapixel rear camera, a secondary front-facing camera for video calls, as well as a microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
