T-Mobile has a new handset on sale in the form of the Samsung Gravity Q which isn’t a smartphone, but a feature-rich device for those with basic connectivity needs. Samsung is offering the phone with a very familiar form factor and an attractive price, but the main highlight here is a slide-out 4-row QWERTY keypad that’s hidden under the display, for quick and convenient text input.
Well, the Samsung Gravity Q isn’t the only one of its kind on the carrier. The TXT which is available for a price of $139.99 also features a QWERTY keyboard as well as similar specifications. Given its budget-friendly nature and basic feature set, no official launch has been given to the handset in question. And its existence on T-Mobile was spotted by Phone Scoop.
When the QWERTY keyboard isn’t of need, the Samsung Gravity Q has a touchscreen on the front for navigating through the interface and accessing menus. The display is 3 inches wide proffering a QVGA TFT LCD panel. Users will be able to employ the rear-facing 2MP camera for capturing images and recording videos. Additionally, pictures can be snapped up through various shooting modes like panorama, smile shot and more, as well as uploaded to various services.
The Samsung Gravity Q measures 4.43 x 2.35 x 0.56 inches and it weighs 4.19 ounces. On the inside, 128MB of RAM and 256MB of ROM are the only memory provisions, albeit there is a microSD card slot which supports up to 32GB. A 416MHz STE U6805-Core processor provides the steam, while a 1000mAh battery strives to deliver up to 5 hours of talktime or 6.5 hours of internet browsing. For connectivity, the company has included Bluetooth with A2DP and 3G for speedy data access.
Those keen on getting their hands on the Gravity Q can head over to the carrier’s online store and purchase the device for $9.99 with equal monthly payments of $6 for a period of 2 years or by paying the full retail price of $153.99.
