Samsung Galaxy S i9000 launching in Asia in June. Android 2.2 Froyo promised for later
The Samsung Galaxy S i9000, with its gorgeous 4 inch Super AMOLED display, will be officially launched in Asia in June – at about the same time when the handset will hit Europe (with Vodafone being one of the carriers to offer it).
In Singapore, an unlocked Galaxy S will cost 1,089 SGD (about $774), so the smartphone’s price for other Asian countries will likely be similar.
The Galaxy S i9000 is Samsung’s first Android handset to come with a Super AMOLED display. It will run Android 2.1 at launch, but Cnet Asia has it that Samsung confirmed the device will be updated to Android 2.2 Froyo sometime later this year.
The Samsung Galaxy S will almost certainly be available in the US, too, where T-Mobile should launch it as Samsung T959 (not sure when exactly this will happen, though).
