Two New Samsung Galaxy Models Leaked at Google I/O Conference
SAN FRANCISCO, USA - Last week, during the Google I/O conference, two new Android-based smartphones were leaked: the Galaxy 3 GT-i5801, and the Galaxy 5 GT-i5500, with the Acclaim also making an appearance.
Google’s I/O conference is used to present the search giant’s latest products, as well as to allow developers to interact and learn more about existing products from the Mountain View company.
More than 48 Google Android smartphones were showcased at the event, over two days. From these devices, the latest models in the Galaxy line-up were the ones to capture our eyes.
The Samsung Galaxy 3 i5801, is, according to rumours, an entry-level handset, bringing a low cost smartphone to the market. It features a touchscreen display with 240×320 pixels in resolution, a 3 megapixel camera Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a 3.5mm audio jack, microSD memory card support, and 3G connectivity.
The Samsung Galaxy 5 has been referred to as the Corby Android, although that may just be a codename. The handset may even be cheaper than the Galaxy 3, therefore we cannot rule out the possibility of it being a Corby, and not Galaxy. It offers a 2 megapixel camera, a touchscreen display with 240×320 pixels in resolution, Bluetooth, 3G connectivity, and microSD memory card support. It is understood to cost EUR200 (US$248) and have a July release date.
The Acclaim had been previously discussed by PhoneReport, a mid-end Android smartphone heading to US Cellular.
There is no word on when the Galaxy devices will be announced by Samsung, a summer release date is likely.
