Specs are mostly similar to the original Galaxy S except the following:



  • 1.4Ghz single core Qualcomm MSM8255T CPU

  • 1650mAh battery

  • Android 2.3 out of the box

  • Metal back cover

  • HSPA+ 14.4Mbps

Sounds like the existing Galaxy S with a bit of lipstick to make it look like a new model.

It has replaced the Hummingbird processor with a Qualcomm Snapdragon @ 1.4ghz and Adreno 205 GPU

Sounds more like a reasonable performance upgrade to me over the SGS. Since it's visually identical to the original Int'l SGS i9000, I'd say it's that models replacement. Better battery and more grunt should keep the SGS 1 selling for a while longer and the fact they're going to Gingerbread adds hope for us SGS 1 owners.

Galaxy S has gone to its new owner. HTC Sensation has gone to its new
owner. Galaxy S3 has gone to its new owner. Now using Galaxy Note 3. Skipping Note 4 I think...

Hope this is more than a rumour! But it makes the choices for upgrades tougher!

Incremental update, good for those who can't afford the SGSII.

Apparently its now been confirmed...

Imo the specs might make it better than the SGS II Tegra based at least.

An important consideration for those who spend much of their online time or receive emails while travelling through many different countries, or those who just like to swap carriers frequently. Or both.

All those news about shortage of Super AMOLED I am surprised this model comes with this type of screen. I wonder once it is available, will there be a Super LCD variant like the i9003....
