The Samsung Behold II goes on sale tomorrow at T-Mobile for $229.99 with 2yr contract agreement. One might think Samsung would release the full product specifications on their website so consumers could make informed buying decisions, but that has not been the case. Conveniently missing were the CPU, ROM, and RAM (which we consider the most important specs).
I contacted Samsung and T-Mobile and received the following response from both parties:
- CPU: 528 MHz
- ROM: 200 MB (*)
- RAM: 320 MB
(*) Please note that the ROM number provided to us is most likely the free space available to the user. We have been unable to confirm this, but I believe the true ROM size is 512 MB like most other current Android phones.
It is interesting to see that Samsung included the 320 MB RAM. This is more memory than any Android phone to date. Most new phones like the Droid feature 256 MB RAM and the highest we have seen was the 288 MB RAM included with the HTC Hero and certain versions of the HTC Magic.
We were hoping to receive a review unit for the Behold II, but that didn’t happen (big surprise). Check back tomorrow for a full review roundup of the Behold II and more information on its launch.
