Samsung Galaxy S Pro Details Emerge

More information about the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy S Pro smartphone have been revealed a few hours ago by Android Central.

The mobile news website said that a "tried-and-true tipster" managed to send them a snapshot of an early prototype of the handset.

The Galaxy S Pro comes with a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display, which Samsung claims, is better than the Retina display on the Apple's iPhone 4. It also has an ARM Cortex A8-based processor built by Samsung, 512MB RAM, Wi-Fi, a five-megapixel camera with a front-facing webcam and 4G compatibility.

The unannounced smartphone will also, apparently, be capable of recording 720p HD-ready content but its main attraction would potentially be the full slide out QWERTY keyboard that makes it look very much like the Nokia N97.

The device was running Android OS 2.1 rather than v2.2 but one can expect Samsung to update it by the time it is launched. It will also come with Samsung's own set of improvements commonly known as Touchwiz 3.0. The Galaxy S Pro is currently US-bound and there are no release dates or pricing details yet for the UK.

The Dell Streak currently has the largest screen of all smartphones on the market with a WVGA 5-inch touchscreen with the HTC Evo next on the pecking order with a 4.3-inch one. The iPhone 4G however still has the highest screen resolution by far with a 960x640 pixels display.
