Samsung Galaxy S3 With QWERTY Keyboard Launching on T-Mobile This Month

The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, also known as the Samsung Galaxy S3 with full QWERTY keyboard, will be released on T-Mobile this month.

The carrier announced the device earlier today that will feature almost the same specifications as Samsung's wildly successful flagship device.

"Consumers are increasingly looking for a powerful device that makes it easy to integrate their busy work and personal lives," said Andrew Morrison, vice president of product management for T-Mobile. "The Galaxy S Relay 4G is the perfect addition to T-Mobile's popular Galaxy smartphone line-up, providing our customers with a reliable and business-centric Android experience and the easy access to entertainment for which Galaxy devices are known.

The Galaxy S Relay 4G will run on the carrier's 4G HSPA+42 network.

The smartphone comes with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

The device was originally scheduled to come out on T-Mobile in August, but was pushed back to this month.

The handset also features identical specifications to the U.S. variant of the Galaxy S3, including a dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1GB RAM, and 16GB of built-in memory. It will also come with Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed, and its display will be 720p HD.

It will also be a likely candidate for the Android 4.1, JellyBean update.

The JellyBean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 has reportedly leaked.

This build of the software carries the number I9300XXDLI7 and it should officially begin rolling out any day now. This update is expected to be over the air, so Galaxy S3 owners will not have to access it using Samsung's Kies software.

Samsung also reported that the Galaxy S3 has sold nearly 200 million units making it the most successful smartphone this year.
