Samsung’s i5700 Android smartphone has been known by a few different names since we first spotted it last year: the Samsung Galaxy Mini, for instance, and the Samsung Spica when it got its Korean launch. Now, headed to T-Mobile UK, there’s a new name: the Samsung Galaxy Portal i5700.
The name may be different, but everything else looks the same. That means a 3.2-inch touchscreen, HSDPA, WiFi and GPS, along with a 3.2-megapixel camera and 3.5mm headphone jack. Samsung will apparently be preloading a Layar-based augmented reality app onto the phone.
Unfortunately it also gets Android 1.5 rather than anything newer, which we’re less than impressed by. Still, it’ll be something of a bargain when it arrives – first on T-Mobile UK and then on other UK networks – free with a £20 ($32) per month contract.[via Recombu]
