The Samsung SGH-A767, more commonly known as the Samsung Propel, is a mobile phone by Samsung Telecommunications. It features a full QWERTY keyboard that slides out from under the phone. It comes in white, blue, red, and green, and is one of AT&T's most popular cell phones. It was designed as a quick texting phone along with the Pantech Matrix, the Pantech Slate, and the UT Starcom Quickfire.

The Samsung SGH-A767's QWERTY keyboard makes texting and any other task that requires using letters, numbers, and symbols, much easier and faster to complete. However, the size of the keyboard can be a drawback for people with large hands because the keys are flush mounted and close to each other.[1] Another downside is the screen resolution, which only has 65,000 colors.[2] Along with the standard features of most phones, the Samsung SGH-A767 has GPS capability, with both audible and visual aide which is Java based. It is, however, a separately licensed product, requiring both downloading the program and paying extra for data services.[3]

Music and other multimedia capabilities are included with the Samsung SGH-A767. The microSD slot allows you to transfer music and pictures from a computer to your phone, while adding extra memory. The AT&T Music feature allows you to download and play music and ringtones.[4] Recorded audio and playlists can also be played. Supported audio file extensions are AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), AAC+, eAAC+, MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio), 3GP, MPEG, MP4, and M4A.[5]
