The Samsung Galaxy S 4G was announced a few weeks ago but the carrier was pretty mums on when we could expect the Android device with HSPA+ support to hit the market. Well, T-Mobile said it will be available in February, so it won’t be long before you can get this thing in your hands.
The Samsung Vibrant it replaces, as it still rocks the same 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 1-GHz Hummingbird processor, and 5-megapixel camera but it does have a few tricks up its sleeves. As the name suggests, it will be compatible with T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network for 21 Mbps download speeds (that’s theoretical, but we’ve found real-world speeds to be quite good in strong coverage areas).4G isn’t that much different from the
The Samsung Galaxy S 4G also one-ups most of the other Galaxy S lineup in the United States by coming with Android 2.2 Froyo. Of course, now we get to wonder when, if ever, it will get Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The Samsung Galaxy S 4G will also come with a front-facing camera and Qik pre-installed, so you can make video calls on the go. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to work. During our review of the latest myTouch, we found the on-the-go video chatting to be a super hit or miss thing.
Other than that, you have a bunch of preloaded software like doubleTwist with its AirSync feature for syncing tunes over WiFi, Slacker Radio and it will also come with the movie Inception.
Yeah, I don’t know why the companies are pushing the fact that it has the Inception movie preloaded so hard (just as it did with the Vibrant and Avatar) because that is a made-for-a-big-screen picture. The Super AMOLED screen is nice and all but you really should experience that movie on a big-screen, high-definition television if you can.
There’s no word on the price yet but we’d expect this to fall land at the $199 mark with a new, two-year contract. You can go to this T-Mobile site to sign up for more details.
