Well that didn’t take long at all, now did it? Samsung and T-Mobile may have had plans to announce this device later this month – with a launch headed our way in the latter portion of July – but the internet had better plans (as they often do): Cellphone Signal’s gotten the first official-looking shots of the Samsung Vibrant.
Much like what the Samsung Captivate on AT&T is, the Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile looks like a slightly reworked Galaxy S (at least on the external). As T-Mobile had been hinting to on their Twitter account for a few days now, the device will come with the Sims 3 pre-installed, the movie “Avatar”, Amazon’s Kindle app, native GoGo in-flight internet support, and HD video recording capabilities.
It’s being powered by Android 2.1, will have a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and chipset, a 5-megapixel camera, and an interface Samsung is apparently calling “Smart Life”. WiFi N, Bluetooth 3.0, FM Radio, and 16GB of internal storage do their part in making up a pretty desirable device.
Once T-Mobile and Samsung are ready to pull the wraps off of this now-almost-certainly-but-not-really-confirmed device, we’ll bring the details to you at once. Until then, be sure to stop by CellPhone Signal for the full gallery of press images.
[Update]: According to T-Mobile USA’s Twitter, we could be in for a pleasant surprise tomorrow. They’ve also dropped another clue: “It’s easy to be a bookworm with this library at your fingertips.” Is anyone else suddenly thinking about the Amazon Kindle App that we just referenced in the text above?
