Images from the firmware deepen the mystery of the Samsung GT-i9200

Images from the firmware deepen the mystery of the Samsung GT-i9200
Last week a tweet leaked word about a mysterious handset called the Samsung GT-i9200. With similar model numbers to the Samsung Nexus S (GT-i9020) and the Samsung Galaxy 2 (GT-i9100), the hope was that this would be a high-end model. While nothing has changed to kill off that dream, references in the firmware to a Hummingbird processor and an 800 x 480 display brought forth the notion that the mystery phone has a lineage that goes back to the Galaxy 2 line.

Pako7, a member of the Xda-developers forum, dug into the firmware and extracted some images including a large number of icons, screens of a camera interface and the virtual keyboard. If some of the icons look familiar, it is because they were on the screen of a phone photographed on a questionable product information sheet. The handset in the picture is allegedly an undisclosed Samsung flagship model for the first half of 2011. Many of you called this a photoshopped fake as the phone looks suspiciously like the Apple iPhone 4, right down to the spot where the two antennas meet. Hopefully some more information will develop that will give us a better idea about the Samsung GT-i9200.

if this is true, samsung really needs to add some creativity to their software. I thought the galaxy S line was copying stuff from the iphones...this is just robbery!

Haha Sammy exploiting the rotten Apple.. it hate Apple, been hating Sammy recently cause the only thing worse than a iphone is a wanna be iphone that Sammy nailed.. if Jobs goes head on with Sammy than they better be ringing LG's doorbell and ask for more than just IPS Retina's.. hahaha Go Sammy, already made half the iPhone components, the Enemy of my Enemy is my friend, even if that friend is just trying to be like the original Enemy. i guess there are always consequences, when one falls the other rises, just gotta see which one you hate the most, but than again the other one will just become like the original and a new contender will rise but i keep hope of the New one being Original

GOD! I am sick an tired of other companies copying ideas from the iPhone! Is the iPhone 4 really that great?! Thier are OTHER phones out there that beat the iPhone 4 hands down! Android has over taken the iPhone population! Android is better! Samsung, you really need to get your own ideas!
