Google showcases new Android phones: Samsung Acclaim, Samsung Galaxy i5500, Galaxy i5801, Acer Liquid Stream
Although it didn’t announce Android 2.2 Froyo yet, Google has showcased four upcoming Android smartphones at its I/O conference in San Francisco: three made by Samsung, and one made by Acer.
First we have the Samsung Acclaim R880, which will be launched by U.S. Cellular in the coming months. The real Acclaim looks nothing like the rumored Acclaim, and that’s a good thing.
The Samsung Acclaim R880 should feature Android 2.1, 3.2 inch HVGA touchscreen display, sliding QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, Google Mobile Services, Bluetooth, 3MP camera, and MicroSD card support.
Next we have the Samsung Galaxy i5801:
It’s not clear yet if the i5801 will be called Samsung Galaxy3 or not. Anyway, the handset runs Android 2.1and features 3G, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headset jack, and MicroSD card slot.
Also part of the Galaxy series is the Samsung i5500 (we’ve previously heard it would be a Corby device, but it doesn’t look like that’s true). The Samsung Galaxy i5500 should come with Android 2.1, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS and Bluetooth. The phone is TIM-branded, so it should be released in Italy soon.
Finally, we have the Acer Liquid Stream, which reportedly features a 3.7 inch touchscreen display and a Snapdragon processor (it will probably be launched as the successor of the Acer Liquid e):
