Samsung Behold II — Android AMOLED Lands on T-Mobile USA


T-Mobile has landed yet another Google Android handset, making the carrier’s wide assortment of Android devices in the U.S. even wider. The Samsung Behold II hits before the holidays, and like the G1, myTouch and Cliq before it, will support T-Mobile’s 3G network. Much like the Sense interface of Sprint’s HTC Hero (see our video here), the Behold II has a custom interface floating above Android. Samsung’s TouchWiz UI should be familiar to prior Samsung smartphone owners by now, and that’s what you’ll see on the Behold II.

This might be the first T-Mobile handset with an AMOLED display — if it isn’t, it has to be among the first. The 3.2-inch display will show off the three (just three?) homescreens and the TouchWiz cube with shortcuts to six multimedia features: music, photos, videos, the web, YouTube and the Amazon MP3 store. Samsung tucked in a 5-megapixel camera, support for up to 16GB of external storage, assisted GPS and Bluetooth 2.1. No official pricing has been released yet.
