UNCONFIRMED: Samsung Nexus S to hit Europe as the GT-I9003 with different Bands and Super-LCD

After the Global Certification Forum has just approved the Google Nexus S as the Samsung GT-I90003, it's quite obvious that Samsung's new hero Android smartphone will be launched under its own brand as well, instead of being available in the U.S. and UK as the Google Nexus S only. And while we have heard that the specs will be mostly the same (except that the GT-I9003 will support triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/1900/2100 MHz), we have also heard from trusted sources that the GT-I9003 might not come with Samsung's very own Super-AMOLED display but with a Super-LCD touchscreen instead. And the reason is quite simple: Samsung is still not able to fulfill all S-AMOLED display requests.

While this sounds like bad news for some Super AMOLED lovers (like me), I know plenty of other users which will really like and value the fact the the European Samsung Nexus S version will have a SLCD instead - since both display technologies have its advantages and disadvantages anyway.

Cheers ~ Arne
