April 27, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Smartphone enthusiasts in South Korea are set to get the first taste of an Android phone, with Samsung rolling out its Galaxy A in the country.  The Galaxy A (SHW-M100S) is expected to be picked by South Korean smartphone lovers by the hundreds as the new Android feature would be a first for them and also could be the forerunner of many more mobile handsets that would come sporting the Google OS in the days to come.

The handset has been rolled out with features needed to lure South Korean customers to stores. Significant is the fact that the phone will support video telephony feature for the first time for Korean users’ needs.

A 3.7 inch WVGA AMOLED display, a 720MHz processor, terrestrial DMB, and DivX support based on Android 2.1 are some of the outstanding features that come along. These features hint at the fact that the phone has been tailor made to South Korean likings, as they are all value additions considering that consumers would want options for live TV and video games on their mobile phones.  

Samsung is also making available a handful of Android applications on its own Samsung Apps store.

The roll out already having happened, we guess the Samsung Galaxy A will start being sold in the Korean market by April end.
