South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung seems set to bring to the market a new handset powered by Google's Android mobile operating system, and a series of details on the device have just emerged into the wild. The phone in question reportedly features model number I5800/I5801, while being powered by the latest version of Android, namely 2.1.
The new Samsung I5800/I5801 has been spotted in a video that emerged over at HowardChui.com, showing that the device might land on shelves as the successor of the already popular Galaxy Spica. The handset is expected to arrive on the market as a rather affordable phone, though specific details on this area are missing at the moment.
As for the specifications the new mobile phone might boast, we can count a design similar to the Samsung Galaxy A, which was recently launched in South Korea, Wi-Fi 802.11n connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, support for 3G networks, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a display that might deliver a 240 x 400 pixel resolution, yet unconfirmed. At the same time, the device is expected to offer users the possibility to add removable storage space into the equation via a microSD memory card slot.
A few more info might be extracted from the handset's user agent profile, though not much else is said there either. The handset might end up hitting the shelves as an entry-level phone, even if some previously expected it to become the Samsung Galaxy 3. One way or the other, it still looks as an appealing device, and specific details on its availability and pricing should be unveiled soon.
Other information on the new Android-based mobile phone from Samsung lacks at the moment, though it might not be too long before the company makes an official announcement and brings all to light.
