The Samsung Galaxy is one of the more under-appreciated Android phones on the market, mostly because of its European-only status. Though it has been out for months overseas, we've heard very little about any potential launches or carrier support--so it's been sort of swept under the rug here in the States. We've been aware of the Samsung Galaxy, but it's been other Android phones that have got us going.

Well, it looks like that may change because a Samsung Galaxy 'Lite' has made its way through the FCC and it looks like a presumably budget version of the Galaxy will be made available for US consumption. Though the details of the Samsung Galaxy 'Lite' are shrouded in mystery, we do know that it'll be offered by a GSM carrier (T-Mobile?) and that it'll have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (of course).

We're hopeful that the Galaxy 'Lite' won't be too different from the Galaxy because if we've waiting this long for a less capable device, well we won't be too happy about that. What do you guys think?

My guess is what will make it "lite" is memory. Galaxy has 8GB on-board; Lite maybe 4??? Kinda like the iPhone 8GB & 32GB. Purely speculation but seems reasonable. If Lite is only a 4 or even 2GB phone, that's still more internal memory than any other Android phone out there.

@ Tallbruva: That sounds reasonable, the only other concept that comes to mind is that this would be the white Samsung Galaxy ... I could be mistaken but I don't think there was really an actual white Samsung Galaxy only photos of such a phone. Perhaps this white Galaxy is for the US release ... I'm most likely way off on this, but what's a post without some speculation lol =)

"...The Samsung Galaxy is one of the more under-appreciated Android phones on the market, mostly because of its European-only status..."

It also happends with another devices that are "USA only", that silly market.

I bet you guys..The AMOLED screen will be missing, that's how it can be offered at 199 or less, hence Galaxy Lite!
