Rumor Mill: More Samsung Galaxy S models on the way?

Posted on June 21, 2010


In the wake of AT&T Mobility’s announcement that it will be launching the Samsung Captivate–its version of the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S–speculation is mounting that additional versions of the high-end gadget are coming soon to other U.S. carriers.
More and more models of the Galaxy S have begun filtering their way through the FCC’s approval process, and Samsung itself is holding an event in New York City June 29 to promote its latest smartphones running on Google’s Android platform. A Samsung spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
T-Mobile USA has long been rumored as another potential destination for a version of the Galaxy S. A T-Mobile spokeswoman declined to comment on the Galaxy S speculation, but new FCC documents have indicated that a version of Samsung’s flagship smartphone may be headed to the carrier.
Additionally, specifications for another version of the device aimed at Sprint Nextel, called the Galaxy S Pro, leaked on the blog Android Central. According to the blog, the device has a WiMAX radio, a 1 GHz Samsung processor, a front-facing camera and a slide-out Qwerty keyboard. Sprint spokesman Mark Elliott told FierceWireless that the carrier will be launching a Galaxy S smartphone later this year, but he declined to discuss pricing, availability or features.
