Samsung Galaxy S Site Live With Lots To See

Are you begging to know more about the Samsung Galaxy S superphone?  Well wonder no more as Samsung just lifted the veils on its Galaxy S informational website. In store for you is a bevy of images, music and a man making far too many outfit changes. You’ll also find a complete user guide, a bountiful gallery, specs (which conveniently leaves out a T-Mobile AWS version?) and did I mention plenty of pictures? By now you’re already heading over there and even thought Samsung seems to have conveniently left off an AWS version on this preview site, we’re still holding out hope for a July 21st launch on Magenta.

Samsung Galaxy S Site

Thanks to all of you who seemingly wake up and hunt down Samsung Galaxy S news for sending this in!

  • tamara

    I feel like I want to jump out of my skin with this….my anticipation is thru the roof!

  • hey does this megaphone reek of touc wiz ui ?

    • Joe H.

      Flash is a useless feature in a camera about 2 feet in front of you. Big f’in deal. Having flash or not isn’t a deal breaker..

  • allen

    Well, this might actually do the trick. I look forward to all the comments that explain why the phone sucks. ;)

  • Claude

    I think this is my next phone if it really comes to TMO in July.

    • bubba

      t-mobile is getting the samsung galaxy s; i’ve seen it being tested.

  • If this device was going to come to T-Mobile you think they would start all the advertising now not later. The only reason I can think of holding off on the advertising is for more people to buy their new Android phones, the Garmin and the Slide. This is one heck of a phone and I just don’t think we will see it on T-Mobile, I hope the heck we do, this phone will bring many new and good customers to their company.

    • Dashi

      Think Of It This Way The “Main” Android Phone Of The Summer Tmobile The Slide Is JUST Now Starting To Recieve Some Promotions T-Mobile Likes To Keep Things Under Wraps WAY To Much

  • Jordan

    Please come to T-Mobile!

  • kurt

    Note general advertising trends on phones. Very very few are advertised before the release. Sometimes ads begin when they are released, but often, and especially with TMobile, the safe bet appears to be to release and then crank up the marketing.

  • Chris H.

    I’m seeing a definite lack of the 1700 band under “specs.”

    Not a good sign.

    • matt

      I was wondering when someone was going to bring that up. I saw the same thing – anyone see any leaks from the FCC on the 1700 band?? I doubt Tmo will get anything good – they are the least expensive company and their phone selection really shows it. Hanging with my G1 and Cyan 5.07 until I see something that is concrete and impressive. Their (U.S.) motto should be “Today’s phones – next year…” Seriously – how long had the Motorola Droid been out? They still don’t offer anything that competes with it…

      Really hope I am off base here.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    “Where Are You Go-ing Tooo” Classic. Haaa!!!
    If this thing has Flash on it which I highly doubt it will, I will be getting this to replace my HD2 until Project Emerald Decides that I finally want to make Tmo some money.

    • jake

      wow some super flash, thats too bad, hummm look at this my Behold 2 has a LED Flash, thats ironic :)

      • Wilma Flintstone

        Haaa! Wow, irony rears it’s ugly head…

      • Wilma Flintstone

        “if I had one” is the key factor. I don’t know why people bought that crappy behold 2 anyway. Was it a good phone for the time or something because the behold line has always been garbage in my opinion.

  • Chris H.

    I’m seeing a definite lack of the 1700 band under “specs.”

    No AWS? Not good.

  • badbob001

    Given Samsung’s previous history and the phone’s custom interface, do not be surprised if you’re stuck with 2.1 for at least a year if not forever. If I had a choice, I would wish it were HTC that came out with this phone since their customizations to the dialer are so useful.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      Ok dude, I think the Behold 2 hate is getting pretty old now. That was one phone, move on with your life.

      • GHOUSE

        yah. just cause the behold 2 is not being upgraded doesn’t mean samsung is not gonna upgrade the galaxy s which is a beast phone.

      • jake

        You wouldnt say that if you had one

      • jake

        just one phone that happens to have a flash

      • ach

        Don’t forget about the Galaxy i7500 which is still running 1.5…

    • jake

      pretty sure hes got a point about their history of not supporting, and its included more than the behold 2 just to set the record straight, and only one phone…TMO has pledged no phone left behind, so get off your high horse. I am pretty sure if you had the behold you would be just as pissed as the tens of thousands of people who have them. You guys thinking the behold stuff is old and not a big deal is really starting to piss me off, I really hope you all get this SGS and get screwed over..I will laugh endlessly.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        not planning on getting galaxy s unless it has flash and even so, Don’t plan on keeping the galaxy s. It will just hold me over until The Project Emerald device comes out. Don’t get mad at others because you were too lazy to read the specs of the behold 2 and because you got screwed by Samsung *no offense to others in this situation, jake is just a butthurt customer that sishes bad on others because he got screwed, sad really. To others in this situation, I am sorry this happened to you*. As I stated before, “if I had a Behold 2, which you’d never catch me with” I’d most likely upgrade to thd mytouch slide and be done with it and not whine and wish bad on others just because I got let down. Now get off your pity wagon and grow a pair.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        that was supposed to be “customer that wishes” and “the mytouch slide”. Typing this on an HD2.

  • Scott

    Anyone think Cyanogen will run on this phone? If so, it should put Tmo back in the Smartphone race. Won’t regain the lead, alas, but at least they’ll be competing for a change!

  • androidDUKE


  • sactomkiii

    but why no flash on the camera… kinda dumb

  • DavidinJax

    Two words NO FLASH

  • yungjecal

    that was my big problem that it does not have flash on the it for the camera…true enough i do have digital camera but having that flash on the phone makes a difference when taking profile pics or just everyday pics with friends at nightclubs or downtown………..because i would love to take back my new MyTouch Slide for this massive beast but the no flash really turned me off….

  • dennis p

    how can u have such a nice phone and no flash on the camera?

  • rj

    Hey all question.. Galaxy network is as follow..
    HSUPA 900/1900/2100
    EDGE/GPRS 850/ 900/1800/1900
    Does that mean it will only be Edge??

    • Chris H.

      Sure looks that way to me. Those look like AT&T bands (in the US), not Tmo.

    • J

      T-Mobile will not release a GSM only smartphone. I doubt they would even release a GSM only dump phone.

      • Chris H.

        Which is why I am not convinced this is coming to T-Mobile.

    • Phenomenon

      I noticed the lack of 1700 frequency as well.

      I’m wondering if this is just the spec’s for the European version? It’s already been stated that there will be a US version.

    • tpavey

      I have seen some speculation that the T-mobile version will not have a SuperAMOLED display… wonder if that is why this one doesn’t have the proper bands.

  • wojax

    I’ll believe it when i see it.. t-mo has let me down plenty times before you know… I’m getting tired of this buggy hd2 and need a more reliable phone to replace it that doesn’t freeze up all the time.(and yes i use task manager, soft reset,etc.. all the time) and by the way ,have you ever tried taking pictures in dark rooms with flash on a cellphone?. they really don’t look that great, so grab a camera.

  • tato22

    i would why the heck dont these people put flash is it really that hard ?

  • Barry

    is a camera flash really that important? Only thing I was confused about was the removal of the humming bird processor other than that I will have this phone next month.

  • bishop

    here is the US launch site and not just the international
    hope this still comes to t-mobile USA

  • bishop

    the website is having issues today, anyway here is the US launch site, nice but no new info but something to keep an eye on.

  • David

    Some of you guys are jumping the gun here, if anyone noticed this is their international site, thus the listing of European freqs. The US version of Samsung mobile has yet to say anything. Oh and what you mean the removal of the humming bird processor??? Specs clearly state 1Gz proc, which was what was always said from the beginning.

    • MDL

      This is correct. This is not for the US Galaxy site, it is international.

  • jv

    Anyone notice the icon under the presentation for swype? Kind of looks like a Tmobile icon.

  • Barry

    no I read somewhere that said the humming bird processor would be removed in the US versions of the phone and that was one of Samsungs
    main features along with the super amoled screen. how it was the fastest on the market. idc I’m getting it.

  • Barry

    no I read somewhere that said the humming bird processor would be removed in the US versions of the phone for the snapdragon and that was one of Samsungs
    main features along with the super amoled screen. how it was the fastest on the market. idc I’m getting it.

  • phonegeek

    cmon samsung we need a superphone add our frequencies!!!

  • ObsceneJesster

    @Barry…I read the same nonsense on one website. Sorry but I think I will believe the other 10 that said it will keep the Hummingbird. Also it would cost T-Mobile more money to put in a Snapdragon being that they designed and manufactured the Hummingbird. Keep in mind the Snapdragon and Hummingbird are the same processing chip. It’s just the chip-set Samsung changed. Don’t believe everything you see on the interwebs.

      I hope you understood that.

  • Bimmerz

    Well I just got back a little while ago from my local T-Mo store, and while there I spoke with a couple of the managers that work there. I was there mainly to see if there was any news on “Project Emerald”, I didn’t get very far with that info.,…

    BUT, while there I mentioned how I wished that T-mo would have been the one’s to get the EVO, and the 1 manager mentioned the upcoming G1 as well as HE mentioned the Galaxy S coming in July (as a matter of fact, in his way of stating it).

    I said yeah, but that I wasn’t sure if I wanted a Samsung phone, and that I was a little irked that Samsung went pretty basic with the camera features (5mm instead of 8, and no flash). He agreed with me.

    Anyway, for those of you who want the Galaxy S on T-Mo, if these guys are kept in the loop – then it sounds like you’ll be able to get it. Personally, I am going to hold off on the Galaxy S, until I see what the whole Emerald ordeal is – as THAT will be the true competitor to the EVO (I think), and possibly my dream phone! :)

  • raymond

    guys shld ii just buy a sprint evo 4g n get it flashed to cricket -_- 40 dollars a month but u get everything unlimited -_- except i won’t have 4g :O

  • Barry

    OK gotcha yea I try not to get too caught up in the rumor mill. but I definitely think this phone is coming and I’m waiting patiently.

  • First Fixer

    G1 What G1 we have had the G1 for over 18 months now

  • TheAnalyst

    Has anyone seen this: ?

    I’m wondering what is happening June 29.

    • soon2TMO

      it’s the laucnh day of the SGS in the US..most countries it is being released on have a launching party or something..
      hopefully they’d announce which carriers are getting them and when…

  • Johnny C

    does anyone know if thats a front cam on the upper right corner of the phone???

    • soon2TMO

      it is a VGA vid cam.. low resolution though..

  • Reece

    The first high end Android phone that doesn’t have a friggin flash for the camera

    Just let that sink in and repeat it back.

    Now what did you break in your 5 minute outburst of rage? I broke the kitchen sink, living room window and the neighbors nose!

  • hurycne

    can it tether thats the question

    • soon2TMO

      it does have stock wifi tethering!! called mobile AP!

      the question is, will tmo allow it?

  • soon2TMO

    Also known as Samsung T959 Galaxy S for T-Mobile USA
    2G Network – GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    3G Network – HSDPA 900 / 1900 / 2100
    HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 – for AT&T
    HSDPA 900 / 1700 / 2100 – for T-Mobile

    it does say on there it is coming to tmobile, and it has tmo’s bands!!!

    we just need a confirm release date!! can’t they release it tomorrow already?? LOL

  • Ned Flanders

    This device looks awesome and will be my next device, I am saving my upgrade for t mobile for this.

  • well i hope this phone does come to tmobile on July 21st! thats my birthday and this phone would be an excellent present for myself. im 16 turning 17 and this phone is the only reason I’m desperate for a job so i can buy myself this phone!! hoping this wish comes true!

  • derrickps3

    i hope samsung doesn’t screw the galaxy s owners like they did the behold 2 owners

  • remixfa

    i dont know why you would assume they would take away features like the FF camera. that would require a whole new assembly line and a second phone.. doubling its cost per unit.

    also, texmoss, i dont know where u get the “tmo is famous for crippling phones”, considering Tmo doesnt make mfctrs use custom interfaces like other carriers like VZW does. The only one that Tmo really keeps an eye on is the mytouch line. They purposely make them upper mid grade, but not top notch so they are easier to mfctr and can sell like hotcakes. But thats also why they say Tmobile instead of HTC (HTC really makes the phone). If its not a Tmobile branded phone, its not controlled by Tmobile.

  • Johnny C
  • Bobert

    Wow there goes t mobile lowering the bar yet again

  • alex

    again as i said before, tmobile gets screwed. before the Galaxy S is even out… there is already evidence of a Galaxy Apollo which is supposed to be even better. eff it.

    • soon2TMO

      wrong.. galaxy apollo wont be better than the galaxy S.. it is inferior to gs

  • soon2TMO

    galaxy apollo is speculated to have 700 mhz only..

  • bubba

    t-mobile is getting the galaxy s; i’ve held it in my hands and played with it

  • Cedric

    YES, The Galaxy S is coming to T-Mobile. We tested the phones, sent them back for a few modifications and just got ’em back yesterday. The phone is very impressive……I hope you guys like it. Yep, I work for magenta:)

    • TheAnalyst

      When will it go on sale?

      • ObsceneJesster

        July 6th

      • soon2TMO

        july 6? are you making this up??

        i hope not! july 21 is too long..! lol

    • Green Robot

      “Modifications?” Why am I suddenly worried.?

    • Green Robot

      Was one of those modifications, a removal of wi-fi hotspot capabilities by any chance? I have a feeling that this advertised ability to use Galaxy S is going to be promptly modified out of existence on request from T-Mobile. Any comments on that Cedric?

      • soon2TMO

        geez! i hope not, wifi tethering features is one of the reasons i want this phone..

        myabe they just wanted to add some tmo apps..

    • Ann

      Yeah I am so glad to hear that, I was ready to give up hope on T-mobile and find another carrier, I can’t stand my G1 anymore

      • Hmm

        Yeah and att just confirmed the got the galaxy s….yeah, they never liked tethering at tmobile. the hd2 outside of tmobile has the ability to do so but the tmo version doesn’t.

  • NiiDiddy

    I want this phone…at least i can try it out for 14 days and if i don’t like it, return it. But i want this phone whenever it comes out…maybe, just maybe, this is what i’ve been waiting for in an Android device from Tmobile.

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    Here’s something to give us all pause and burn our bacon, all at once.

    The Samsung Galaxy S PRO is confirmed and it’s going to Sprint!

    That’s the SGS with a physical keyboard.

    What a drag.

    • TheAnalyst

      Sprint is getting Pro, but that doesn’t mean any regarding TMo getting Galaxy S. Besides, I personally wouldn’t want the phone if it had a physical keyboard. I find them just to be extra baggage. Having had a touchscreen for about a year and a half now, I prefer it over phones with keyboards.

  • Ned Flanders

    yeah I hope T Mobile usa gets this device, I like the one with out the keyboard. If T Mobile USA gets passed up again, ugh, that will be a major fail.

  • soon2TMO

    samsung galaxy S just passes through FCC with tmobile bands and SGS could be the first device to use tmobile II band… haspa+??

    just a matter of time..


  • Ned Flanders

    Awesome, if it just went through FCC, than it should be coming any day now. I cannot wait. I guess they will wait until July, ugh, hurry up already…

  • Green Robot


  • Green Robot

    Finally something concrete I meant.

  • davidohio

    I just don’t get why this amazing “superphone” does not have a camera flash????????!!!!##!#!#@!#

  • NachosWifee

    I tested this phone at a focus group and OMG…can’t wait til it comes out and I did talk to a representative at TMobile and he on the DL confirmed that a phone will be released soon but not sure if it will be called galaxy s…

  • Nice, finally a superphone for those too cheap to buy a Nexus One. Looks essentially the same but with some nice Samsung customizations and a camera button and looks like it has a front facing camera and it has built in memory in addition to the SD card so you will have 8GB for apps I assume. Even with Apps to SD in Froyo, you can’t move most of the apps to SD because the developers are dropping the ball on enabling the feature so far so you still have no memory and can only move a few tiny apps which don’t make enough of a difference to even waste the time moving them.

    On the other hand why such a nice camera and no flash. Focus groups have to have tested it in low light and noticed no flash. My Nexus has a flash as well as every other so called super phone now that the iphone does. The only other question would seem to be the quality. I had some samsung phones back in the feature phone days and I loved them because they had all the top features (camera, mp3 player, bluetooth, etc) in them at an affordable price. That was nice, but they always felt cheap, like they cut corners to keep it affordable. For example, I had a slider with camera, bluetooth and mp3 player but the camera was built from thin plastic and attracted scratches on its screen. It also collected dust inside of the screen.

  • Thanks for the nice article, I’m eagerly waiting for my Samsung Captivate through T-Mobile as soon as they legally confirm that they’re carrying it. I was in my nearby shop today and had a hold of their own dummy model. It appears and feels significantly better than I imagined. This is going to be the cell phone to get. Never mind the iPhone 4g, the Galaxy S is where it’s at. As for me, I’m upgrading from a Samsung Pixon after an 18 month contract and am delighted to have finally settled on the Galaxy S. The decision process was fraught with many, many hours of analysis on the internet. I was close to an HTC Desire and even closer to an Xperia X10 but then, from out of nowhere, I came across the review of the Galaxy S and it just does everything so well.

  • I’m a present Omnia (910) user on Verizon who was extremely disappointed with Windows Mobile 6.1 and Samsung’s shell. Wound up getting SPB Mobile Shell to acquire a usable interface and had to abandon Exchange email due to security restrictions. Generally anytime you tried to place or obtain a call, you needed to enter your PIN and I was missing calls to be a result. Finally decided to abandon smartphones for the time getting (economic motives) and wait for an excellent Android system. The Galaxy S (Facinate) really should fit the bill. Disappointed to hear with the GPS concerns. Let me add that Verizon’s 3G assistance was exceptional through and I sooner or later stopped applying WiFi simply because V3G was a lot rapid adequate for me.Interestingly, I’m employing the Omnia like a wireless device around the property for checking electronic mail, Twitter, Facebook and easy browsing. But not as a phone!

  • In the Android world smartphones are getting stronger with each new development in android software, and the Samsung Galaxy S is the new breed of Android smarthphone looks set to be a keen competitor.
