Samsung seems to be working on a new phone. A Samsung User Agent profile came up recently and it seems to be for a phone called the GT-i5801. From the agent, we can see that it’ll be running Android, and has a rather unusual screen resolution: 240×480. It’s suggested that this could simply be a typo as – up until now – there is no Android phone with a 2:1 screen resolution (indicative of what you might find on older flip phones).

It also appears that it could be a Samsung Galaxy 3, with several foreign retailers listing a similarly-modeled GT-i5800 with that name. It’ll be interesting to see what type of phone this turns out to be if the resolution listed in the profile is correct. Could we be seeing Android adapted for the under-powered feature phone market? Just a little speculation, as usual, since we don’t have any other details presently.
