A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... No, actually, today, right here on Earth, Samsung announced its latest Android handset, the Galaxy S. The Galaxy S packs a four-inch AMOLED display and a 1GHz processor.Samsung's latest Android phone leaps towards the top of the heap. It runs Android 2.1 and boasts a four-inch WVGA Super AMOLED 800x480 pixels. Hardware features include support for U.S. 3G bands, a 5 megapixel camera with user-facing VGA camera for video sharing. It can record HD video in 720 pixels at 30 frames per second. It has GPS, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and Wi-Fi. It will support microSD cards up to 32GB and will be boxed with a 16GB card.

This set of specifications is become the de-facto set of features for smartphones. So what else sets the Galaxy S apart? A host of new software features.

Samsung calls this "Smart Life," a new way to interact with mobile devices.

From the press release, Samsung says, "Living a "Smart Life" requires intelligence, and the Galaxy S delivers just that by utilizing personal preferences to gather information online that each user needs and wants. With a user-defined daily briefing (instant access to weather, news, stocks, and the scheduler), lightning-fast processing speeds and location-based search options like Layar Reality Browser.

The Galaxy S integrates with a variety of other devices, such as notebooks, TVs and cameras, the highly advanced Social Hub plugs users quickly and conveniently into their complete world of social networking and email.

Samsung didn't say exactly when it will go on sale, or how much this device will cost.
