Samsung is preparing to launch a new Android Smartphone known as the I9001 or Galaxy S Plus. Inside we find a 1.4 GHz CPU, Super AMOLED display, WiFi connectivity with the hotspot function, video output and a 5 mega pixel camera. Simply, this is a toy that looks rather attractive on paper..
12.2 centimetres long, 6.4 wide and 1 centimetre thick, the Samsung Galaxy S is powered by a 1.4 GHz MSM8255T Qualcomm SnapDragon processor, paired with 512 MB of RAM and the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system with the TouchWiz 3.0 layer. The system is also able to access the Android Market applications download platform.
It comes with a 4 inch capacitive tactile Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, compatibility with 2G/3G mobile networks, Wi-Fi 802.11n wireless network connectivity including support of DLNA and the hotspot function, an A-GPS chip, electronic compass, 5 mega pixel digital camera with autofocus, smile/face detection, a 0.3 mega pixel webcam, DivX compatible multimedia player, FM radio tuner, 3.5 mm headphone jack and video output.
It also comes with 8 or 16 GB of internal storage space which can be extended to 32 GB via memory card, micro-USB 2.0 port for synchronisation and Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP management allowing you to use wireless hands free kits.
Not yet officially unveiled, the Samsung Galaxy S should become so in the very near future, since it is planned for launch towards the end of April.
