Samsung Glyde 2 Leak
A sequel to the year-old Samsung Glyde has been found in a leak posted by a HowardForums user. Known also as the U960, the new phone is considerably sleeker than the outgoing model but adds a significantly expanded screen and a fourth row to the keyboard. Similarly, it also upgrades the software with Samsung's in-house TouchWiz interface and carries an accelerometer to tilt the interface on its side.
Few other details have been uncovered other than that the phone will support 3G when it arrives at Verizon. More information is expected to follow soon, although seeing the phone for the first time renders it unlikely that the new Glyde is near shipping. Most phones often require weeks or longer of testing.
