T-Mobile has slapped an official date on the release of two new Android Samsung Smartphones — the Exhibit 4G and Gravity Smart — a couple of sub-$100 devices that will feature respectable specs and arrive before the end of June.
The initial unveiling earlier this month lacked a lot of specifics, including a launch date for the devices. T-Mobile has now officially announced over its Twitter feed that both will become available on Wednesday, June 22, one week from today.
T-Mobile has not exactly provided prices, just saying that both the Exhibit 4G and Gravity Smart will cost under $100. It’s relatively safe to assume that this means they will cost $99.99, probably after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a two-year contract, considering the price model for similar phones.
Complete spec lists have not been released for either device, but enough information has been revealed to paint a relatively complete picture of both phones.
Details on the Samsung Exhibit 4G
The Exhibit 4G is going to be the first mid-range Smartphone to debut with Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread) on-board. It will function with T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 4G network and be powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor. It will also feature a 3.5-inch display, general measurements of 4.7 x 2.3 x 0.5 inches, and will weigh in at 4.2 ounces.
The Exhibit 4G will also have a 3 megapixel rear-facing camera with flash, as well as a front facing VGA camera for video chatting. Samsung claims its device has 6.5 hours of battery life with continuous talk time.
Details on the Samsung Gravity Smart
The Gravity Smart is geared toward avid mobile messengers, and is going to feature a four-row slide-out physical keyboard. It will run Android 2.2 (Froyo) and have a 3.2-inch display and 3 MP camera.
It will measure in at 4.5 x 2.3 x 0.6 inches and weigh 4.6 ounces. The handset will offer a bit less battery life than its compatriot above, running about 5.5 hours with continuous talk.
