This appears to be simply a more efficiently manufactured version of the original phone, employing better yield processors. The original Hummingbird processors could be overclocked, let's not forget, but not reliably so. This is how Intel decides what's a Core i3 vs. i5 (aside from also obviously locking down certain features) will sell as. Why do people care that this specific phone isn't dual-core or whatever? The important thing is that Samsung could get the phone down to an incredibly low price. I have an Epic 4G on Sprint and still find the phone to be plenty capable almost a year after it was released.
