It looks like Samsung is not completely done with their Galaxy S line of phones. The company recently had a table leaked that shows that they are planning on releasing a phone with a 1.4 GHz processor in European markets. The phone has been one of the few that is considered to be a direct competitor for the unlocked iPhone 4.
The information came from a comparison sheet that showed off the new version of the device. The new device looks just like last years original, and is going to be sold for somewhere around $846 around Russia.
Shortly after the information was leaked Samsung came forward to confirm the news about the new phone. It appears as if they decided that instead of having rumors and untrue information floating around the net like wildfire, that they would confirm the phone themselves and start promoting it.
This is very exciting news for users of the Galaxy S line. It is easily their most popular line of smart phones and they have been continually able to find ways to update old devices with new features that keep the users coming - especially when they already have a hit on their hands with the device.
Although the price is quite steep, the additions to the phone show that the company has put some real thought into improving the speed of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S unlocked will be branded as the “2011 Edition” of the device. So far the company has not released any commercial branding for the device. They have yet to announce when they will be releasing the phone in other markets outside of Russia, but with the popularity the phone has already garnered, you have to believe that they are going to look at releasing it elsewhere as well. Russia rarely receives devices first, but this current release of information shows that this case may be an exception to the rule.
