A number of documents that detail some of the specs of the upcoming unlocked Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant 4G have made their way online. It looks as though the phone will be very high powered, and will include HSPA+ 21 technology making it the fastest phone on the T-Mobile network. It will also feature a front facing camera that will allow users to video chat through the device using chat technology that is powered by Qik, a company that was recently acquired.
It will run on the Android 2.2 operating system. Most were hoping that the phone would run on a brand new version of the operating system, but Android 2.2 Froyo is still highly popular and the phone’s hardware seems ideal to run 2.2. The 4 inch screen will feature Super AMOLED Touch Screen technology, and will run on a 1GHz processor, along with a five megapixel rear facing camera that is capable of 720p HD video capture.
The document shows us that the Samsung vibrant 4G will be one of the better phones that is slated for a first quarter release from Samsung. It is now strong enough to be classified as a “super phone,” as so many announced devices at the Consumer Electronics Show were labeled, but it is a solid offering for T-Mobile Users. They are expected to release further details on the Galaxy S sometime next month at the Mobile World Congress, where they will be debuting the successor to their highly popular unlocked Samsung Galaxy Tab, a device that has been able to sell more than 10 million units in total, making it only the second Samsung phone to sell that many copies. It will be interesting to see how the Samsung Vibrant 4G is received by users on the T-Mobile network. The hardware and technology is certainly there, now we wait to see the execution.
