Samsung Launching 720p HD Device at IFA 2011 – Is It a Smart Phone or Tablet?

We learned a few days ago that Samsung is planning to launch a new Android-powered device at the IFA 2011 which will feature a huge 5.3-inch display as well as other good features.  It appears that the rumor is becoming more legit as a new Samsung device has been added on T-Store Developer Center with the model number of SHV-E120S. So what exactly is SHV-E120S? The report shows that it comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Qualcomm MSM8250 (single-core), and it features a 720p HD display. At the moment, we don’t know about the size of display, but my guess is that this is the 5.3-inch display we were talking about. If you are thinking it’s a tablet, then we point to the fact that it’s running Gingerbread, not Honeycomb.  Every tablet Samsung has announced since the first Galaxy Tab has been listed with Honeycomb so this is probably a smartphone, albeit a huge one.  We’ll find out before long as Samsung clears the air at IFA 2011.

Is it a good idea for Samsung to offer a phone with a screen that large or will it end up in Dell Streak 5 territory? The comment box is waiting for you below, so leave your feedback.
