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.
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.
