CTIA09 – The Samsung Behold II makes an appearance

While Taylor was talking with someone from Samsung about the Moment, we noticed a Samsung Behold II sitting alone in a glass case. They weren’t actively promoting it and no one was there to give any details (who knows if it was even a functioning unit) but we were able to snap some photos. The phone is to be released on T-Mobile, but again, there was no one there to get an official statement from. Below are the highlights or see the whole Behold 2 set on Flickr.

    wow… guess T-mob puts all resources into promoting the Moto CLIQ…

    • lolamarya

      That would be the manufacturer who gets T-Mobile to push phones, so it seems Motorola is spending more money on advertising than Samsung.

        advertising is overrated :-). real android fans know what to get.

        • Pieter

          true, but they dont intend their phones to real android fans. look how much the iphone is selling…their advertising is raking in the ignorant customers.

    looks A LOT like the Galaxy, I mean A LOT. Only the physical button seems to be a little different regarding the hardware.

      im pretty sure it is the galaxy. have to wait for specs but if it has the internal 8gigs its safe to say thats the galaxy.

  • Brian

    This is the galaxy lite..

  • Galen20K

    Yeap, this is what happened to the Galaxy Lite. They just named it the Behold II. Just like on Sprint how they Named their Instinct Q, the Samsung Moment!

  • http://www.TMoToday.com Armo

    This is T-Mobile’s version of the original Samsung Galaxy, not the Lite. there is nothing “lite” about this phone.

    • Galen20K

      Its Lite, its not going to have the Enormous Storage of the Original Galaxy I’m sure.

      • Galen20K

        I hope I’m wrong tho, I’d love to have all that Storage! ; D

      • http://www.TMoToday.com Armo

        No. It’s not the Lite. it the T-Mobile’s version of the original. the Lite has a 3.2mp cam, not 5.

        • Galen20K

          So do you think it will have 8gig storage? I hope so!

        • http://www.twitter.com/the_real_newman @the_real_newman

          armo is 100% correct. Galaxy lite has a 3.2mp and the galaxy has the 5.0 also galaxy lite does not have a flash.

  • http://www.twitter.com/the_real_newman @the_real_newman

    its weird though because, to my knowledge, the galaxy hasn’t got its FCC cert. just the lite. Which makes me wonder where has the lite gone?
