Samsung bringing SHV-E170K smartphone to Korea's KT

updated 10:19 am EDT, Fri May 11, 2012

New Samsung phone to support LTE, get Android 4.0.4

Yet another Samsung smartphone has been quietly revealed, this time by carrier KT in South Korea. The device, known thus far only by its SHV-E170K model number, would get an LTE radio and sport a dual-core, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4. It will also ship with Android 4.0.4 onboard, SammyHub reported, but it will have Samsung's TouchWiz custom skin onboard as well.

The handset would revolve around a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with 960x540 resolution and get a five-megapixel rear camera along with a 1.3-megapixel user-facing camera. It should weigh about 4.4oz (126g).

While the phone is expected to come to KT before the end of May, a North American release isn't likely. Pricing isn't yet known, however.
