samsung galaxy s

With the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S just around the corner, Korea IT Times are reporting that Samsung plan to release the device at the same time in 110 countries around the world.

If reports of an Asian release date in June are accurate, this probably means that you’ll be able to get your hands on the Galaxy S in the next few weeks, regardless of whereabouts in the world you are.

This certainly comes as a surprise, following claims from Verizon’s CEO, Lowell McAdam, that Samsung can’t manufacturer enough AMOLED displays to support demand for the Droid Incredible.

Launching the Galaxy S, which uses the same AMOLED display, in 110 countries at the same time certainly goes some way to discrediting those claims, and is undoubtedly a publicity stunt to show that production of AMOLED displays is just fine.

Hopefully, the release of the Galaxy S will come sooner rather than later, with the device aiming to truly popularize the smartphone market.

    I must say again and again: after seeing Galaxy S at I/O, its gorgeous screen (which is miles above EVO's) has really stuck in my head - I still can't get over how gorgeous it was.

    Plus, the Samsung camera software can take panoramic pics (I think up to 6 or 8 stitches) - I tried it and it worked really well.

    Very-very good phone.

    Here is a review of this phone on GSM Arena. Great review and once you read it you are going to want this phone.

    The Galaxy S actually uses a different AMOLED screen. A SUPER AMOLED, so I don't see how this phones release has anything to do with the Incredible. Either way Im thinking of getting the S, especially if it has the behold2 camera.(without a flash is fine as the night shot mode works great)

      Both screens are manufactured by Samsung themselves. The implication could be that the Incredible suffered a shortage of screens because manufacturing lines originally meant for the incredible's screens could have been repurposed for the Galaxy s to ramp up production for this massive simultaneous launch.

    Ah yes, that makes sense, very plausible. I really am excited about this phone and can't wait to try it out.
