The two handsets could be available to Indian customers as early as June 10 – at least that’s what CellPassion is saying.
Both smartphones have WVGA screens (4 inch for the Galaxy S and 3.3 inch for the Wave) and lots of common features, like HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, 1GHz processor, and 5MP autofocus camera with HD video recording. Of course, the main difference between the two devices (apart from their design) is the OS: the Galaxy S runs Android 2.1 while the Wave runs Bada.
The two smartphones’ prices for India were not announced, but the Wave S8500 should cost about 25,000 INR ($540), while the price of Galaxy S will probably not be under 30,000 ($650).
