Samsung InstinctQ images

Some of the first photos of Samsung's InstinctQ smartphone have been leaked, a report claims. The device is notably Android-based, helping to spread the platform beyond devices from HTC. Newly revealed in the photos is the presence of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the first such in the Instinct series, which has normally depended on touchscreens to provide text input.

The phone is currently branded for Sprint, and is rumored to be shipping either on October 11th, or sometime in November. Expected features, based on other Android phones, include GPS, Wi-Fi and a capacitive touchscreen. A sibling device, the Instinct S50, is rumored to be launching in September with a five-megapixel camera, but no keyboard.
