A few days ago, we reported that Samsung is cooking up a new Android monster that will feature a 5.3-inch display, and will be announced at IFA 2011 which is taking place in Berlin, Germany, September 2-7. It’s a month or so down the road, but Samsung is still working hard on their upcoming flagship device, and we’ve heard that it’s in the final stages of development. But now Mobile-Syrup is reporting something completely different. They got their hands on a leaked shot, claiming that Rogers Wireless will launch it and it’s being included in their “Lite Device” lineup, along with the Nokia X7, LG Phoenix, and SE Xperia Mini Pro. All of these are mid-range devices, and Mobile-Syrup is also saying that it’s being dubbed the Galaxy Q, because it’ll feature a QWERTY keyboard. If we look at the image below, we can see the Galaxy Q in the very back.
So we’re a bit confused, as we originally heard that the Galaxy Q would be a huge device with mind-blowing specs, and yet we’re left with a mid-range QWERTY slider. It’s possible that the device Samsung is planning to launch at IFA 2011 is something else, and probably codenamed as Galaxy Q. Of course, they’d have to rename it now to avoid confusion.
With that being said, what do you think? Is Sammy still planning to launch that 5.3-inch device in September, or did the facts just get mixed up? Sound off in the comments below or on our Facebook Wall!
