Samsung Galaxy 5

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The Samsung Galaxy 5 also known as the Samsung Corby i5500 Android (Corby is known as Genio in the Europe) was first spotted in official wireless certification documents before being teasingly seen 'in the flesh' behind a glass cabinet at the Google I/O conference with no information about the phone other than the fact it runs Android. Now ladies and gentleman the Samsung Galaxy 5 has been officially announced!

I got some specs for you too including confirmation its packing Android 2.1 Eclair with a slightly customized UI (check the picture tab!), A capacitive 2.8" inch TFT-LCD screen supporting multi-touch, a 2 megapixel camera, 1200 mAh battery and all the wireless functions you'd expect including bluetooth, wifi, 3G etc. You can clearly see the sleek and attractive design just shouting at you to play with it! Exactly what you'd expect from Samsung.

No confirmed details as to price or Launch date but the interwebz point to a July release for about 199 Euros to Italian networks TIM and Wind. Keep an eye on this page and Phandroid.com for all the latest!
