Samsung just published details about the D600 Conquer 4G, a new WiMax Android smartphone for Sprint. Phone Scoop’s Eric Zeman noticed the Android-based device on Samsung’s Web site complete with specifications and images. Based on the specs, the Conquer 4G appears to be a mid-range smartphone.
It has a 3.5-inch HVGA display, 1GHz processor, and offers a 3.2 megapixel main camera with flash, and 1.3 megapixel user-facing camera. Based on the images published by Samsung, the Conquer 4G will include Sprint iD, which offers users bundled themes and software for their Android devices. The FCC approved this handset in April with CDMA in the ESMR 800MHz band, 850MHz band, and the 1900MHz band, making it a tri-band CDMA device. The ESMR support means the Conquer 4G will eventually be able to use voice services on Sprint’s 800MHz spectrum when it transitions iDEN off that spectrum. The Conquer 4G also includes Wi-Fi. As Zeman reminds us, this means that the phone will be able to use voice services on the spectrum once Sprint transitions the push-to-talk iDEN off.
Samsung has officially announced the Conquer 4G just yet, we have no suggested price or launch date.
