As predicted, Samsung has quietly unveiled the Galaxy SL GT-I9003, a Super Clear LCD version of the existing Galaxy S. The new model keeps the Galaxy S’ 1GHz Hummingbird processor, Android 2.2 Froyo OS and 16GB of onboard storage, but swaps out the Super AMOLED display.

Although Samsung hasn’t confirmed it, the exchange is believed to be to preserve stocks of Super AMOLED for its newer devices; the best-selling Galaxy S is due to be replaced at MWC 2011 in a week or so. Right now it’s being listed on the Samsung Middle-East site, but there’s no telling whether other regions will also get this alternative model.
