South Korean handset maker Samsung plans to launch a plethora of smartphones in 2013 and the first devices are likely to be announced in less than a week at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 (CES), which is set to kick off on January 8.
Although Android enthusiasts are waiting for Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S device, which is rumored to be officially introduced at Mobile World Congress 2013, next month, the handset maker will be launching several low- to mid-range smartphones as well.
The guys over at Blog of Mobile
have just spotted the Galaxy M Pro
successor, the GT-B7810.
The handset has been approved
by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) back in June 2012, and is likely to be announced at CES 2013.
The smartphone is likely to be launched as Samsung Galaxy M Pro 2, though we don’t have an official confirmation yet.
Anyway, Samsung GT-B7810 is a slight improvement in comparison with the Galaxy M Pro model, as the former comes with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, whereas the latter is powered by Gingerbread.
The original model embeds a 1 GHz single-core processor, so the GT-B7810 must be slightly better.
We also know that the upcoming smartphone comes with HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as Bluetooth 3.0 and 3.5mm audio jack support.
No word on the amount of RAM and storage, but Samsung GT-B7810 will pack microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
There are no details on the rear camera, but the live pictures published by Blog of Mobile
reveal that the photo snapper lacks LED flash. It is also worth mentioning that the phone’s display supports 480 x 360 pixels resolution.
Last but not least, the GT-B7810
is said to drain energy from a 1200 mAh Li-Ion battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer.
