New Samsung Galaxy SL i9003 gets official, runs Android 2.2, has an SC-LCD screen

Samsung has officially introduced a new version of its Galaxy S Android smartphone.

It’s not the Galaxy S2, which will be unveiled at MWC 2011 soon – but the Galaxy SL i9003.

One of the differences between the old Galaxy S i9000 and the new SL i9003 is that the latter features a 4-inch Super Clear LCD display, instead of a 4 inch Super AMOLED one.

The new handset is thicker (10.59 mm vs. 9.9 mm) and heavier (131 grams vs. 119 grams) than the old one. Also, the i9003 has a 1650 mAh battery and – thank God – it comes with Android 2.2 (and perhaps an update to 2.3 Gingerbread is due to arrive soon). Another change is that the 1GHz processor of the i9003 is a TI OMAP 3630 one – does that mean there’s something wrong with Samsung’s own Hummingbird CPU?

GSM Arena has got a hold of the new Galaxy SL and compared its Super Clear LCD display with the screens of the original Galaxy S (pictured on the right) and the LG Optimus 2X (pictured on the left). While the SC-LCD screen is better than the display of the Optimus 2X, it still doesn’t match the quality of the Super AMOLED screen the i9000 has:

There’s no word on when or where the Galaxy SL i9003 will be released, but we can already see it over at Samsung Mobile Middle East’s official website.

    note to samsung:

    Just let the Galaxy S Die already, it’s 2011 now, don’t tell me you’ll be pulling the RAZR effect come 2011.

    I am thinking of getting this one but also I can’t wait to get a hold of the white iPhone 4. Which is better? Any suggestions? I am not really a techie about these phones but getting one of them will definitely be cool!

    Actually it’s the other way round – the Galaxy S is on the left and the Optimus 2X is the rightmost one.
