New Samsung Galaxy S arrives

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has announced a partnership with Giorgio Armani, to create a limited edition of a new Samsung Galaxy S mobile phone.

The special version of the Samsung flagship Android handset arrives with a different outer casing and chassis, only with the same internals and specifications of the original Samsung Galaxy S.

Giorgio Armani's Samsung Galaxy S has an exclusive Armani-patterned back metal cover, in a much squarer chassis where the first Galaxy S had rounded edges and the distinct look of an iPhone 3G - where this model doesn't have the same outward appearance.

Armani's update to the Galaxy S still has a 4.0-inch 480x800 Super AMOLED screen, with a 1Ghz processor, 16GB of internal storage and a 5 megapixel camera capable of HD video recording.

The mobile phone arrives running Android ‘Froyo' 2.2, where the original Galaxy S shipped with Android ‘Éclair' 2.1 and was accompanied by the Samsung TouchWiz overlay - which is now replaced by a Giorgio Armani GUI instead.

The Giorgio Armani Samsung Galaxy S model will be exclusive to Phones4U when it arrives in January, although the model can be purchased through Giorgio Armani boutiques and there's been no cost announced as yet.
