I’d keep your salt shaker handy for this one, but a phone and accessories retailer has published what they claim to be the upcoming Samsung roadmap and unsurprisingly it includes a few tasty morsels of Android goodness.
Lets kick things off with the Ice Cream Sandwich based monster the GT-I9250. Sporting a 4.65 inch screen at a 1280 x 720 resolution it should keep most pixel peepers happy. The only other available spec for this one is a 5-megapixel camera which seems a little surprising for what has to be a high-end phone, but passing judgement on a camera based on megapixels alone is always a bad idea.
Moving down the line, but up over half an inch in screen size, we arrive at the GT-I9220. With a 5.29 inch display this one is going to really tax the average pocket to its limits. It does bear an awesome 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED Plus screen though so if you are intent on having a little entertainment center in your pocket this might be just the thing for you. You are going to be running with Gingerbread out of the box, but you can drown your sorrows in the 1.4 Ghz dual-core processor and 8-megapixel camera.
The GT-I9210 is one of the most detailed devices in the leak. It will feature a 4.5 inch screen at a now somewhat disappointing 800 x 480 resolution. It does specifically mention having 4G on board though and a hefty 1750 mAH battery to keep it chugging along. An 8-megapixel camera on the back and an impressive 2-megapixel front facing camera should keep everyone happy along with support for full HD recording from that back camera. Wifi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS and a fighting weight of 4.5 ounces round out the listed specs.
The GT-I8150 seems suspiciously like a superphone of last year so I would guess we are entering the budget friendly range here. It has a 3.7 inch screen at 800 x 480 with 5-megapixel rear (capable of 720p at 30 fps) and VGA front-facing camera. The rest of the specs are similarly run of the mill with 4GB internal storage, Wifi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, an FM radio, and finally support for HSPA+.
The last of the Android phones mentioned is the B5510-W41 with a diminutive 2.8 inch screen. Fortunately it will offer QWERTY keyboard so you don’t have to try to peck anything out on that screen. Beyond that it offers a 3-megapixel camera and an FM radio.
The lone Android tablet making an appearance on the list is the successor to last years 7-inch Galaxy Tab, the P6200. While it does get the bump to Honeycomb the rest of the specs are definitely a disappointment with the same 1024 x 600 resolution as the previous version. A 3-megapixel back and 2-megapixel front camera should cover most of your tablet photography needs.
The GT-I9250 could certainly find a place in my lineup. What would the remaining specs on it have to look like to get you hooked? Or does one of the other rumored devices have your eye?
Update: Still have that salt shaker handy? Samsung has come forward and said that “the details being cited are not accurate in this case.” It’s at least mildly interesting that they even find it necessary to respond to this and I also find their phrasing rather interesting as it leaves open the possibility that pieces of this leak are true. Time will tell exactly how inaccurate these details were.
