Not yet officially announced, German BamS (Bild am Sonntag) received the information that Samsung will launch its first Android smartphone (pictured bellow) with O2 Germany.
Like the HTC Magic which will be available from Vodafone, the I7500 (not S8000 as rumored before) will be a touchscreen-only smartphone, running on Android 1.5 (aka Cupcake) plus Google Mobile Services. It's powered by a Qualcomm MSM7200A CPU at 528 MHz and features a 3.2" HVGA capacitive OLED display as well as a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and a standard 3.5 mm stereo headset plug. According to further, yet unconfirmed information, the I7500 will support quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSPA, Bluetooth, WIFI and GPS and includes 8 GB internal flash memory which can be expanded by microSD memory cards. The metal-body is said to be only 11,9 mm thick.

The release is expected for June already and O2 Germany will carry it exclusively in Germany; without a subscription it's expected to retail for around 300 Euro.

Cheers ~ Arne

Beautiful! Looks better than the Dream and the Magic and if the quality is similar to my Omnia, the i7500 will become my first Google phone!
