Between press pictures suggesting an August 15 launch and other rumored evidence in the air, it was all but certain that the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q would hit the T-Mobile network yesterday. However, the 15th has come and gone, but there’s no Blaze Q. What happened? Anytime a rumor pops up, it should be taken with a grain of salt, but the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q rumor seemed pretty solid – why it didn’t launch despite the teasing, only T-Mobile and Samsung know for sure.

Interestingly enough, a new rumor suggests that the Blaze Q is now going to the market under the name Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G. Besides all the marketing changes, the hardware has remained the same: 4-inch 720p display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and other pretty standard specs.

I know many slider fans were more than excited to get their hands on a 4G slider from T-Mobile, but hopefully the launch will come sooner than later. Considering the delay, are you still interested in the Galaxy S Relay 4G (or Blaze Q)?

    They’re all at Sprint getting the new Photon Q. Sprint has slider phones galore; I wish they’d offer a decent phablet too.

    I am tired of mobile manufacturers restricting keyboard phones to the states. Why are GSM users in other countries be allowed to use it too???
