Well, it’s safe to say that the cat is out of the bag. And it brought a few other kitties with it. Not only will the Galaxy S Pro release on Sprint soon, the Galaxy S be joining it. The tipster didn’t mention if the Galaxy S was a 4G phone as well but I suspect that it is. Oh and here are a few more pictures of the Pro after the break.
Before we get to the good stuff, I would like to point out the “with Google” branding on the back of the device. In the beginning Google said this branding was just for vanilla Android devices. It seems as though they’ve changed their tone not only as far as the Google Phone Store is involved but support for handsets with custom UI’s. Now to the business at hand, the Galaxy S has been benchmarked using various different tools and it performed extremely well.
Multi-touch is a deciding factor for a lot of people when considering their next mobile phone. Android has not been known to be the best in this area. Most notable, the nexus One, has been perceived as having a subpar multi-touch display. Until know we’ve always heard that you have to choose between having a beautiful display or a very accurate multi-touch display. Samsung has brought them both together in the Galaxy S.
Since the discovery of the Hummingbird GPU that is embedded in the Galaxy S, we’ve heard that this GPU will deliver home console like graphics and game play. Until now none of us had seen this device in action. Does it live up to the hype? I think it does, video is after the break.
Look like Vodafone will be the first company in the world to release the Samsung Galaxy S. although you can’t preorder now, this handset has been moved to the “coming soon” on Vodafone’s website. But, you can register to receive updates and availability, when it’s ready for preorder you will be notified first.
This is good news and bad news. The Galaxy S is one of the most powerful Android handsets to be released in the near future. It will most likely be the phone to have for gaming, as it stands it has the best GPU out of all the current Androids and every other handset. Time for the bad news, it passed through the FCC with AT&T 3G bands.
