Samsung to launch the Mythic and Flight for AT&T on Nov. 8th


Another week, another truckload of Samsung devices dumped onto the shelves. This week’s Samsung shipment brings two new TouchWiz-based touchscreen handsets: the Mythic, and the Flight.

Before we dive into the specs, we gotta give Samsung some grief for the names. Not because they’re bad – in fact, I really, really like both of these names. So much that I wonder why the hell Samsung is giving them to two random TouchWiz handsets. I mean, come on: LG has to resort to calling one of their best selling phones “Cookie“, and you throw away Mythic? For shame!

Anyway, on to the handsets:

Samsung Mythic:

  • TouchWiz core (in other words, it’s not TouchWiz on top of WinMo/Android. It’s just TouchWiz)
  • 3.3″ touchscreen
  • 3.2 megapixel camera
  • AT&T Nav (subscription required)
  • 4.49″ x 2.06″ x .5″
  • A2DP Stereo Bluetooth
  • Dimensions: 4.49″ x 2.06″ x .5″
  • Weight: 3.8 oz

Samsung Flight

  • 2.0 Megapixel Camera
  • A2DP Stereo Bluetooth
  • Dimensions: 4.17″ x 2.2″ x 0.5″
  • Weight: 4.8 oz

Both handsets seem quite overpriced compared to the competition, launching at $199 and $99 respectively. Both will be available beginning Nov. 8th.
