Samsung confirms three Android handsets, Linux smartphones

Undoubtedly, Samsung is one of MWC 2009’s stars, if we’re to think that it has come to the show with handsets like Omnia HD and the funky, youth-oriented Beat DJ.

But the South Korean company (currently the world’s second largest handset manufacturer) won’t rest on its laurels after MWC ends, that’s for sure.

Reuters reports that Won-Pyo Hong, Samsung’s head of product strategy, confirmed at least three Android smartphones and at least a Linux one, which will all be outed by the end of 2009.  

Of course, we already knew about the company’s Android intentions, but I don’t think anyone had hoped for no less than three handsets to come with Google’s OS (which is itself based on Linux).

HTC’s brand new Magic / G2 looks pretty and all, but it’s kind of outdated when it comes to specs, so let’s hope Samsung won’t disappoint with its own Android devices.  

As for Sammy’s non-Android Linux smartphones, these will be developed together with the LiMo foundation – and that’s all we know about them.
