Samsung’s first Android smartphone pictured
Although Samsung’s Android intentions are not a secret anymore, the South Korean giant has still not announced any handset powered by Google’s open source OS.
Well, not officially, because today, during an online event held in Amsterdam, Samsung showcased what seems to be its very first Android smartphone.
The available image shows a full-touch device with rounded edges and some buttons on the lower side. Sadly, the picture quality is simply awful, but hey, at least we now know the handset’s overall aspect.
Details about the features packed by Samsung into its first Android device are scarce. It’s said it has a responsive capacitive touchscreen (of unknown resolution), quad-band GSM connectivity, HSDPA / HSUPA connectivity, a photo camera and memory expansion slot.
Stuff like Google Maps, Gmail and advanced Web browsing capabilities should also be in there – since the smartphone is an Android one.
The handset will most probably be released in Europe and the US, but for the moment there’s no clear info about this.
