Samsung Galaxy S Getting Closer to Launch Date

April 23, 2010, By Alex Ion

Last week, the new Samsung Galaxy S got the FCC approval for AT&T 3G bands and today we’re hearing that the handset is getting closer and closer to a release date, as it was just approved by the Global Certification Forum. And while still not confirmed with the US carrier, it’s a fact that a launch date for the Galaxy S is up and coming.

An Android-powered handset making its way to AT&T, that sounds too good to be true, right? Wait till you find out that the Global Certification Forum clearance mentions that the Samsung Galaxy S will bring hardware support for 3GPP compliant UMTS video telephony — despite of not featuring a front-facing camera like the EVO 4G does.

Other goodies have been confirmed, too. Galaxy S specs include a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display, a 1GHz processor, quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA support at 900/1900/2100 MHz.

On top of that there’s WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, aGPS, a digital compass, accelerometer, a proximity sensor and anl USB 2.0 port.

We’re still expecting Samsung or AT&T to bring more details about the Galaxy S, but given the fact that it’s going to be available on America’s biggest carrier, it looks like we’re looking at a hot seller.

If anyone cares, we think the Galaxy S will be available in Europe, North America, Latin America, Australia and Asia before summer.
