Only two days after a blurry image with Samsung’s first Android phone was spotted, we’re now hearing the South Korean company is ready to launch the handset in the third quarter of 2009.
Samsung’s first Android device is said to be similar to the HTC Magic presented by Vodafone last month. This kind of confirms the fact that the leaked image of it shows a real handset.
Unfortunately, exact details about its features are still missing, so we’ll probably have to wait for an official announcement to know more about it.
Earlier this year, Samsung confirmed at least three Android devices for 2009, thus we should expect two more to come after the first one.
HTC, the company that introduced the world’s first Android smartphone (T-Mobie G1), also said it would launch two other devices powered by Google’s OS.
LG, Sony Ericsson and Motorola have Android plans too, so by the end of the year the competition in this market segment will finally heat up.
