Samsung A737 Leak

AT&T is preparing a third Samsung phone to accompany the A717 and A727 flip and candybar phones already in service on the network, according to a new leak with a photo and early details. The A737 would share the same basic concept as either device but in a slider shape for those who prefer the form. The device is also influenced by Europe and includes at least UMTS Internet access and likely HSDPA that would provide 3G speed on AT&T's network. In a break from the previous two phones, however, the new model would have bright red accents and would be explicitly music-oriented, complete with a dedicated media player button on the front face and a control pad that may double as a scroll wheel.

Also probable but unverifiable are a 1.3-megapixel or sharper rear camera and support for AT&T's Video Share one-way video call service. Storage is also near-certain to be handled through a microSD slot. No release information has been provided for the phone, however, and it's uncertain whether the device will be carried by AT&T before the end of the year. Pricing is likely to rest between the $100 and $150 of A727 and A717 after signing a two-year service plan.
