The Samsung Galaxy S was one of the most successful handsets last year – it took us with its brilliant 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and smooth performance. The appearance of successors was imminent. And while the Samsung Galaxy S II took most of the limelight, it is the Samsung Galaxy S 4G which we got a hold off as it might launch even earlier than the S II.
Its design is reminiscent of the Samsung Vibrant... or should we say the same? The S 4G has the standard four capacitive buttons, just as the Samsung Vibrant. The greyish back cover on the S 4G differs only in color, it feels plastic however just as its predecessor.
We can't help but wonder – is now the best time for a new device which basically mimics the original Galaxy S? The Samsung Galaxy S II was recently announced with a major overhaul including a dual-core processor. It will be the first one to offer 21+ Mbps in HSPA+ speeds, which might attract users. And hopefully Samsung will be smart with its pricing of the S 4G, which would undoubtedly help sales.
The Galaxy S 4G comes with a front-facing snapper for easier video chats and the camera is bundled with Qik Video Chat. The handset will come with the full version of the thrilling movie Inception.
