If you are looking for a new Android phone, whether to upgrade your existing Android device or get introduced to the platform, pre-orders are now available in the UK for the Samsung Galaxy S.

The Galaxy S and the HTC EVO were among the biggest Android related announcements at the recent CTIA in Las Vegas.

Samsung did not hold back with this phone either, dropping some serious hardware into it that will make any Android fan foam at the mouth, specifically related to the screen.

Expansys, the company taking preorders, is stating that Galaxy S will be available Wenesday, June 2nd, 2010.

Since the phone is sold unlocked, it can be used with a SIM card from any UK or European GSM network (such as Vodafone, T-Mobile, O2, etc).

Galaxy S Specs

The Samsung Galaxy S has some really impressive specs:

  • 4” Super AMOLED Screen running at 480x800 resolution - this will be the best screen on the market when it comes out, period
  • 5 mega-pixel camera with LED Flash
  • HD Recording (720p) and Video Streaming
  • The ‘Hummingbird’ 1Ghz Processor
  • Android 2.1
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • 8GB or 16GB on-board storage
  • MicroSD Card slot – up to 32GB


You can head over to Expansys and preorder this little devil right now for £549.99 (which is about $800USD). It's quite a steep price to pay but remember: you would be getting one of the nicest and most gorgeous Android phones on the market.

    The specs. says "LED Flash"! Is it a goof or have they changed the phone? :D I'll definitely get this phone if it comes with LED flash!

    I was thinking about getting this phone but J550 is too much even for this phone. I will wait for its release and if the price is not down I'll go for the HTC Desire - I doubt a lot it is performing worse that Galaxy S, but it will def save me a couple of hundreds.
