T-Mobile's Android lineup includes another Galaxy series handset in the coming weeks, according to details uncovered by TmoNews. Called the Galaxy S Blaze Q, the smartphone should join the carrier's roster on August 15.

Unconfirmed details for the SGH-T699 handset suggest a midrange Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich experience with a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, a 720pHD display, 1GB RAM, and a pair of cameras. The sliding QWERTY keyboard, which isn't that common anymore, should appeal to social networking enthusiasts and first-time smartphone buyers. Given the rumored hardware, I suspect a low price point is in order for the Galaxy S Blaze Q.

Plenty of unknowns still remain for the Samsung phone, including the camera specs, internal storage, and whether the device supports 42Mbps HSPA+ speeds. With only a few weeks to go before its expected launch date, we might expect to see more-concrete details emerge for T-Mobile's next Android handset.
