Verizon Wireless is set to become the fourth top carrier in the US to offer a Samsung Galaxy S variant, named as the Samsung Fascinate. The same phone family is also coming to Sprint as the Epic 4G, T-Mobile as the Samsung Vibrant and AT&T as Samsung Captivate.

Like the other Galaxy S variants ( except the Epic 4G ), the Verizon Fascinate will also be a touchscreen-only phone with a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, powered by a 1GHz HummingBird processor under the hood along with 512MB of RAM. It is capable of 720p video recording with its 5 Megapixel camera and will run on Android 2.1 OS. The handset has a virtual QWERTY keyboard and a six-axis sensor that works with the accelerometer for fluid gaming control. Internal storage is 2GB and the handset ships with a 16GB microSD card.

The device is preloaded with Bing Maps and Bing Search and comes with support for Google Mobile Services including Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk and Android Market. The Samsung Fascinate is also capable of being a 3G Mobile Hotspot to share your 3G Mobile broadband connection with upto five compatible devices over WiFi. The phone comes with WiFi b/g/n connectivity as well as Bluetooth and GPS. Samsung’s Social Hub allows users to send and receive information, whether it is e-mail, social network updates or SMS messages, all integrated into a single feed.

No pricing information has been revealed yet, but seeing the prices on the other carriers, its likely to be priced around $199 after contract.
