Samsung has launched a new device in its Galaxy series and the device which will first hit the European market is called the Samsung Galaxy Chat. The name of course suggests that this will be an Android-based phone flaunting a QWERTY keypad.

The Samsung Galaxy Chat is a device which runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which is skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz UX. This will be the first Android 4.0 ICS device with a physical QWERTY keypad.

The device is powered by an 835MHz processor, it has a 3-inch HVGA display, 2 megapixel camera, 4GB of internal storage, 1,200 mAh and expandable memory via a microSD card. With the specifications in consideration this seems to be an entry-level smartphone running Android ICS.

Samsung has also equipped the device with a dedicated shortcut to Samsung’s Chat-On messenger which seems very similar to the dedicated BBM key on the BlackBerry Curve 9220. Samsung is yet to release details about the pricing and availability of this smartphone.
