Is this the Samsung Vibrant 4G out in the wild?

The Galaxy S lineup has been a huge success for Samsunglast year, but this year 4G is the hot topic and the Koreans aredoing their best to stay competitive. The Samsung Vibrant 4G for T-Mobile, Sammy's latest bid inthe 4G race, was rumoredfor a release on February 23rd and now it has alsoappeared in photographs from a tipsterfor tech blog BGR.

There, the Samsung Vibrant 4Gsurprisinglyruns Android 2.3 instead of Froyo, while the whole experience wasdescribed as “smooth” and “stupid fast.” Samsung's updatesmight still be a sensitive topic for many, but the Korean companyseems to be quick in releasing new handsets.

The familiar 4-inch Super AMOLEDscreen will remain the same in the Vibrant 4G, but the device adds 21Mbps-capable HSPA+ radio, the fastest on T-Mobile so far. As ofnow the handset was reported to run Vanilla Android, but TouchWizis due to be out for Gingerbread soon and this might change. TheVibrant 4G also brings a front-facing camera for easier videocalling. It is still unclear how thisphone will stand in the company of the upcoming dual-coreheavyweights, so let's wait for an official announcement.
