Samsung Galaxy S Heads to Brazil, Brings Digital TV Along for the Ride

Another day, another announcement regarding a Galaxy S device. We're not saying that we're getting tired of seeing it -- that'd be impossible with that screen -- but it's definitely getting kind of ridiculous. Samsung's making sure to go to extreme lengths to make sure that everyone has the option of purchasing this device. That certainly won't hurt Android's numbers, that's for sure. There's a big difference with this device, though, which is a good thing.

Sprint Unleashing Samsung Epic 4G News Soon?

The Samsung Fascinate for Verizon just broke cover, and now we are hearing that Sprint is getting ready to announce something involving their own Samsung Galaxy S variant, the Epic 4G. Of all the Galaxy S models that made it State-side, the Epic 4G is definitely the most unique, from both the physical aesthetics, to the fact that it will be rocking on Sprint's 4G WiMAX network.

Samsung Galaxy S Comes in White Too

Through all the variations of the Samsung Galaxy S out there, there haven't been any that have moved away from the plain black/chrome color scheme. While that's not necessarily boring or anything, we can safely say that there's plenty of options out there, without much coming in the way of colors. And, we love our options. That's why we're so excited to hear that the Samsung Galaxy S comes in white, too.

AMOLED takes on Super LCD in side-by-side HTC testing video

HTC's decision to adopt both AMOLED and Super LCD (SLCD) for their smartphones has led to plenty of arguments over which technology is better, and now HowardForums has waded in.  They've been comparing a TELUS HTC Desire - which uses an SLCD panel - with the Google Nexus One's AMOLED display, to see which is better. As you might have guessed, the answer isn't quite that straightforward.  The AMOLED has better vertical viewing angles while the SLCD bested it on horizontal angles; neither could match the Super AMOLED of the Samsung Wave (as used in the Galaxy S family of devices) for contrast.  More details in the video below.

That gets you a 4-inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, 5-megapixel camera and 16GB of storage.  The Vibrant runs Android 2.1 with the Samsung TouchWiz 3.0 UI on top.

Samsung Fascinate Still Coming to Verizon, Just Not Soon

So, the Motorola Droid X is launching tomorrow. And, to be honest, we were actually just about ready to put up a post trying to determine which device all of you were more excited about. Which device you were going to slap your hard earned money down for. But then this happened. And well, considering the news we think we may already know the answer. Though, feel free to voice your opinion anyway (Droid X or Fascinate). According to Verizon, it doesn't look like the largest wireless company in the United States knows when they're launching the highly anticipated Super AMOLED handset.

Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile Hitting Shelves July 15th?

When the Samsung Vibrant was initially announced, it was confirmed by Samsung that the 4-inch Super AMOLED display, Android 2.1, 1GHz Hummingbird processor-based device would be available for T-Mobile customer purchase starting July 21st. And, as far as we could tell, there wasn't anything wrong with that date at all. Then again, Motorola's got their own launch happening on July 15th, with the Droid X ready to change everything all over again, so maybe Samsung saw that as a bit of a road block. Well, if rumors are true, then that's about to get a bit more interesting.

Samsung Galaxy S crushes Nexus One in Quake 3 Duel [Video]

The Samsung Galaxy S, pitted against the first superphone (the Nexus One),has managed to come out on top. As you might recall, porting Quake 3 to devices has become a national past time for some developers out there, and now that the game has been given its paces through Samsung's own super-device, the results are quite revealing. According to Android Police, the Nexus One can only render 22 million triangles per second, while the Galaxy S can render a staggering 90 million triangle per second.

Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint Gets Nicely Crafted Promotional Video

We know how it is. Sometimes you just want to sit back and watch a nicely CG-rendered mobile phone video. Especially when it's just a bunch of promotional videos thrown together. And when it comes to Samsung preaching up their latest Galaxy S line of devices (in this case, the Epic 4G), there's definitely a lot to talk about. In the video you'll find out why Super AMOLED is better, and you'll even get a bold statement like the one in the image below. We do know that the 1GHz Hummingbird processor is fast, and apparently that's enough for Samsung to make some bold claims.
