Samsung Galaxy S Pro Appears.

Recommended Posts

The rumoured Samsung Galaxy S Pro has been pictured, proving it's existence!


As per my other news post, the specifications are very similar (the same?)

The main rather obvious difference is the slide out Qwerty keyboard.

There is a suggestion that the Pro is going to be on Sprint in the US.

The non keyboard 'S' is rumoured to be on all carriers in the US.

No news yet on the European markets for either phone yet.

That's it! just a quick titbit of information.

Thanks to Intomobile

Strangely Androidcommunity were credited, but nothing is on their website?

Some more details have emerged, thanks to Android Central.


  • Samsung Galaxy S Pro hardware
  • Size: It's a tad shorter (about a half-inch) and more narrow (about three-eights of an inch) than the Sprint Evo 4G, but it's thick. Not surprising, given the slide-out keyboard.
  • Keyboard: Slider mechanism is very smooth and clicks in place when closed. The keys are raised, made of soft plastic. They're pretty firm when pressed.
  • Body: Our tipster wasn't impressed by the plastic feel, though it could just be a prototype thing.
  • Processor: Samsung/Intrinsity ARM Cortex A8 @ 1GHz.
  • Screen: "Gorgeous," which is about what we hear anybody say when they're first exposed to Super AMOLED. Blacks are very dark, "almost look wet." Font edges look a tad fuzzy, like on the Nexus One. But when viewing white text on a black background, they're very easy to read. The resolution appears to be 480x800. The screen size is noticeably smaller than the Evo 4G, but bigger than the Nexus One. So it may well be the same 4-inch screen that's on the Galaxy S. Very responsive, only needed a light touch. "Never used anything so fluid." Feels a little plasticy.
  • Memory: 512MB of RAM. There was 8.2 gigabytes of ROM, which possibly could be re-allocated to phone storage/internal storage, much like the Verizon Droid Incredible. But that's speculation on our part.
  • WiFi: 802.11 b/g/n.
  • Cameras: 5MP rear-facing camera with 1x optical zoom, 720p recording. Front-facing camera is VGA.
  • Other radios: EVDO Rev. A./Wimax. Additional SIM card slot points to possible World phone.
  • Android 2.1-update 1 was on board. No word if it'll launch with it or Froyo.
  • As for video, H.264 and Divx both worked fine.
  • Usual Sprint software was on board, and Sprint TV worked fine over 4G, 3G and Wifi (on the Evo 4G, it doesn't work on Wifi).

I wonder if this will be released for international markets =( I'm in australia and I would definately prefer this over the original Galaxy S xD

I highly doubt it though, since AT&T and T-mobile have their own version of the Galaxy S too.
