Additional images of the Samsung Vibrant 4G have been leaked
As you can tell by quickly glancing over at the photos, there are almost little to no changes in design with this handset, but of course, you can tell it's going to be included with the Galaxy S family from its branding in the rear. Additionally, we no longer find it donning a glossy black plastic exterior, but instead, it resorts to having some sort of silver colored paint job. And just like the original leak of the handset, it's also sporting the distinguishable outlines of a front-facing camera.
Hardware and design aside, it's being reported that the Samsung Vibrant unit in the shots is running Android 2.2 Froyo, but it's still unclear whether or not it'll be running it, or something newer, when it's launched some time in the near future. As it stand right now, the rumors hint to a launch date of February 23rd – so be sure to circle it down on your calendar.
As you may remember, T-Mobile officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S 4G about a week ago, but with no pictures published, and with AndroidCentral reporting about this Vibrant 4G, we cannot be sure just yet if the Vibrant 4G and Galaxy S 4G are one and the same handset. Hopefully, things will become clear sooner rather than later.

I see Samsung is right on time with leaving out the flash on a the second iteration of this device. What is the deal with that? I think they are the only manufacturer that leaves off this element on high-end phones. They must got something against AT&T and T-Mobile users.

Hopefully someone from this site can answer this question, but I will take any advice. I'm due for an upgrade and have been following this phone for a little while. Other than the no flash on cam, I've heard some good things about the first Vibrant. In short, should I get this new Samsung Vibrant when it comes out or should I get the myTouch 4G?

get the first vibrant...the vibrant plus is not worth it if this is a finalized version
