Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G is a new Samsung Galaxy phone that's just landed on American shores and is available exclusively through T-Mobile. Announced earlier in the year at CES, Galaxy S Blaze is apparently T-Mobile's version of Galaxy S2.

Whether the rest of the globe will be seeing this new Samsung Galaxy phone is uncertain, the official press release gives no indication, although it seems unlikely. Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G's US release comes just before what is likely to be the biggest Android phone event of the year, the release of Samsung Galaxy S3. To add to this, Samsung have overtaken Nokia to become the worlds largest manufacturer of mobile phones, according to a BBC news report.

So what exactly has Samsung Galaxy S Blaze got to offer that Samsung Galaxy S2 doesn't? Will the UK really be missing out if this new Samsung Galaxy phone never makes it out of the USA.

One glaring difference between between these two phones is the fact that Galaxy S Blaze is 4G, using (HSPA+42) technology, which allows ultra fast internet browsing, often faster than that at home. Here in the UK we are lagging behind in this department, although we expect 4G to be rolled out by 2013.

The battery has enjoyed an upgrade, from 1650 mAh to 1750 mAh and Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G has also had a CPU enhancement, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core snapdragon processor running the show compared to Galaxy S2's 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU.

Other specs have been downgraded, with the rear facing camera reducing from 8 MP to 5 MP, and the Super AMOLED screen shrinking from 4.3 inches to 3.97 inches. However, resolution remains the same, at 480 x 800 pixels.

Both phones have NFC, although it's an optional extra on Samsung Galaxy S2.

In conclusion, until we do have 4G in the UK, we probably aren't missing much in the absence of this new Samsung Galaxy phone, and better things are only over the horizon. Roll on May 3rd and Samsung Galaxy S3!
