Last week Google introduced us to the new Samsung Chromebook, which is priced at $249. What most of you may have overlooked is the fact that it’s one of the first devices to launch running the new Exynos 5250 processor. That processor has two Cortex-A15 CPU cores and a Mali-T604 GPU. That’s one powerful processor. This chip also supports resolutions up to 2560×1600 pixels, now that’s high definition!
During the weekend, over on GL Benchmark a new benchmark for an unknown Samsung device popped up and the device was running this Exynos 5250 processor. The model number of the device is GT-B9150. And according to Sammobile, the “B” typically stands for a QWERTY device, which I didn’t know Samsung still made those. Thought only Motorola did that. The benchmark also indicates a 672 x 1280 resolution, which does sound a bit weird, but if it is a QWERTY device then it’ll be a nice looking display, especially if it’s Super AMOLED HD.
So if you’re looking for an Android smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard, you may want to look out for this one, as it might be one of the very few available. Currently in the US we only have the Motorola Droid 4 (Verizon) and the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE (Sprint). Who’s interested in a QWERTY device from Samsung? Maybe a Epic 4G successor? Which might mean it’ll be headed to Sprint. What are your thoughts? Feel free to leave them below.
