Very few of Samsung devices launched in the last couple of years went by mostly unnoticed, and one of such handsets was the Galaxy M Pro, a candy bar handset equipped with QWERTY keyboard and loaded with Android software. Launched in 2011 and lacking quite a bit in the design department with its bulky body, the phone did not shock the market with its specs either. Despite the fact that the Galaxy M Pro wasn’t a great success, Samsung seems to believe that it is worth rebooting and apparently is planning to launch its successor.
All we have so far is the model number GT-B7810, photos and some specs, but if you take all these into account, there is little doubt that the handset is indeed M Pro’s close relative. Featuring a full QWERTY physical keyboard and landscape touch screen measuring probably something around 2.66 inches, the device greatly resembles its predecessor.
LCC documents confirm that it will come with HSDPA connectivity, 802.11 Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, 1200 mAh battery (Galaxy M Pro had a 1,350 mAh battery) and it is expected to be powered by a dual-core processor.
The Samsung Galaxy M Pro 2 will have a microSD card support for up to 32 GB cards and will be running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, which although is two generations behind, will still let the user taste the flavor of Android on this low-end phone.
