Here it is, folks, the Samsung Galaxy S. And let us just say this about that: The Galaxy S is smooth. First, it's just 9.9mm thick. And it weighs nothing. And the 4-inch Super AMOED screen ... You want one. Now. Take to the streets.
The custom user interface sits atop Android 2.1 and is powered by a 1GHz Coretex A8 processor. Don't speak proc? It's cool. That means it flies. And it needs to, with the gaming and video that it's intended to push. But wait, there's more.
There's the Layar Reality Browser -- think of it as augmented reality meets Google Maps meets Google Goggles. It follows what you're looking at through the camera and overlays info on the screen.
More pics and specs (and now video) after the break.
We mentioned the Galaxy S was thin at just 9.9mm, and it's pretty impressive. It's almost too light at just 188 grams, but we could get over that.
Other specs of import: Bluetooth 3.0 (for reals), WiFi b/g/n (we've heard that before, but this could be the first phone with it actually implemented). Full measurements are 64.2x122.4x9.9mm. The battery is a decent 1500mAh.
The Samsung Galaxy S sports a 5-megapixel camera with full 720p video at 30 frames per second.
That screen, oh, that gorgeous screen, is a full 4 inches at WVGA (480x800) resolution.
That's the good news. The bad news is that what we're looking at here is NOT a U.S.-friendly 3G phone. The hardware as displayed supports EDGE at 850/900/1800/1900MHz, meaning that you could use it in the U.S. But the 3G bands are 900/1900/2100MHz, so you're out of luck if you're looking for the standard 850MHZ 3G goodness.
