New Samsung Galaxy S i9000 preview. The phone will apparently cost €600

We’ve already previewed the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 at CTIA 2010, but a new preview of it has been published at Mobile-review, and it includes some extra details.

Coming as Samsung’s second phone to feature a Super AMOLED display (and the world’s first Android device to have such a display), the Galaxy S should be commercially available starting in Q2. According to Mobile-review, it’s actually late Q2, namely June.

An interesting piece of info is related to the price of Samsung Galaxy S. In Russia, the smartphone will reportedly cost about 30,000 rubles – that’s the equivalent of €755. However, it’s said that the handset’s price in other European countries will be of only €600 (about $808).

Below you have some interesting comparison photos showing the Samsung Galaxy S next to the Samsung Wave S8500, and next to the HTC HD2.

And here’s a display comparison showing the superiority of the Galaxy S’ Super AMOLED screen over the screen of HTC HD2:

Mobile-review says that the Samsung Galaxy S (which might also have a Pro version) is one of the key devices of this summer, and for the moment we have to agree. You can read MR’s Samsung Galaxy S preview here.

    I can't wait for a real review of the production ready phone, hopefully the US version will come with flash, that's my only disappointment. Please Samsung if you see this in this day and age a camera phone should automatically have dual led flash or dual flash( one led other xenon). The rest blows every competition out the water, even though the EVO 4G has 8mpx.

    lol, i take it your from America. Dude, we've had 8mp cameras here in the UK/Europe for almost 2 years now and had 2 12mp camphones for a year, we've seen the best from SE, Samsung and Nokia.

    Not to cast aspersions on your camera phones, but I've been looking at the 8 megapixel cameras in camera phones that're coming out, and thinking “Geeze, all that res won't make the pictures look better unless I print a poster, but they will eat up my storage faster.” I consider 3 to 5 megapixels the sweet spot. For viewing fambly photos on a computer, 1 megapixel is typically plenty, but for snapping drawings off a whiteboard, a little more res than that would be nice.
