Samsung Galaxy S US promo website goes live. Verizon launching the smartphone, too?
Not long after Samsung sent out Galaxy S promo boxes, the South Korean company has set up a webpage for the new smartphone on its US website – where it’s said that the handset is “coming this summer.”
There’s still no official word regarding what carrier plans to sell the Galaxy S in the US, but we already know that T-Mobile (and maybe AT&T, too) will do it.
Surprisingly, a user over at the Howard Forums is reporting that there’s also a CDMA Galaxy S in the making, which should be offered by Verizon. Since Verizon already has a high-end Android phone (the Droid Incredible), and it’s readying the launch of Motorola Shadow / Xtreme, this seems unlikely – but, well, you can never know.
In case you don’t know yet, the Samsung Galaxy S runs Android 2.1 (upgradeable to 2.2 later this year) and features a 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, Wi-Fi, GPS, Google Maps with free navigation, 5MP autofocus camera, HD video recording, VGA camera for video calling, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
With a 2-yr contract agreement, the Galaxy S will likely cost as much as the iPhone 4, namely $199. Now let’s see if Samsung manages to launch it before June 24 (when Apple’s new iPhone goes on sale at AT&T).
