Galaxy S 4G Landing Later This Month On T-Mobile [OFFICIAL]


In addition to teasing us with some three dimensional details of the T-Mobile G-Slate, that we HOPE will be shown off tomorrow, T-Mobile took a moment out of their day to remind us that the iPhone isn’t really that good. Why get an iPhone when it’s only 3G on both the AT&T and Verizon versions? They’d much rather you pick up the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and tonight they provided some details to help make that decision.

First of all, T-Mobile is expecting a February launch which is good to know if you’re shopping around for your selection. A few perks TMO just threw into the mix are HD TV through T-Mobile TV, a copy of INCEPTION pre-installed on your device, Video Chat by Qik, and data plans that start at $10/month.

The Galaxy S 4G is essentially an upgraded version of the Vibrant but for full details you’ll want to dig into the press release below:

Galaxy S 4G from T-Mobile to Offer Blazing-Fast Speeds and Unparalleled Entertainment Experience Featuring Movies, TV and Video Chat
T-Mobile expands America’s Largest 4G Network to eight new metropolitan areas in South and Midwest

BELLEVUE, Wash., and DALLAS — Feb. 2, 2011 — T-Mobile USA, Inc. and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the U.S. 1, today announced the anticipated February availability of the Galaxy S™ 4G, exclusively from T-Mobile. According to T-Mobile, the Galaxy S 4G will be the fastest smartphone running on America’s Largest 4G Network™2. The Galaxy S 4G, T-Mobile’s first smartphone capable of delivering theoretical peak download speeds of up to 21 Mbps, offers enhanced mobile experiences and unparalleled entertainment including mobile HD TV3 through T-Mobile TV, the ACADEMY AWARD® Nominated film INCEPTION, and T-Mobile Video Chat powered by Qik™ — delivered at 4G speeds on its 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen display.

T-Mobile also announced the expansion of America’s largest 4G network into more than 100 major metropolitan areas, reaching more than 200 million people nationwide. In addition to expanding its 4G footprint, T-Mobile also has aggressive plans to double the speed of its 4G network in 2011, and the company expects that 140 million Americans in 25 major metropolitan areas will have access to these increased 4G speeds by midyear.

“The Galaxy S 4G pushes the envelope by reaping the benefits of our network’s unprecedented speeds and by offering groundbreaking entertainment experiences,” said Andrew Sherrard, senior vice president, product management, T-Mobile USA. “We are excited to continue to expand our portfolio of 4G devices that enable our customers to have access to unique and compelling features and an optimal 4G experience.”

“The Galaxy S 4G offers customers Samsung’s core premium product investments to speed, screen and content,” said Omar Khan, chief strategy officer, Samsung Mobile. “Galaxy S 4G is T-Mobile’s fastest smartphone and offers Samsung’s brilliant Super AMOLED display and rich multimedia features for premium movie and TV content.”

Through the delivery of faster speeds comes an enhanced experience when viewing video entertainment over the Web using services such as YouTube. In addition T-Mobile TV, a preloaded application, offers consumers access to live and on-demand mobile HD TV on T-Mobile’s 4G network, including free programming from select stations like ABC News NOW, FOX Sports, PBS Kids and Azteca America.

To further enhance the entertainment package on the Galaxy S 4G, T-Mobile has preloaded, at no additional cost to consumers, Warner Bros. Pictures’ ACADEMY AWARD® Nominated film INCEPTION which is nominated for Best Picture, Best Writing (Original Screenplay), Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Music (Original Score), Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects. Customers also have the option to rent or purchase their favorite movies and TV programs directly from the Samsung Media Hub, which features a robust collection of new releases and TV shows.

The Galaxy S 4G’s blazing-fast speeds will make sharing memories via e-mail, social networks or video quick and easy. For example, the preloaded T-Mobile Video Chat application powered by Qik enables customers to share any moment with loved ones virtually whenever and wherever they want through T-Mobile’s network or Wi-Fi. Using either the front-facing or the rear camera, which features a 720p HD camcorder, paired with Video Chat allows customers to hold video conversations with friends and family who have a compatible mobile device.

Featured as a pre-installed application, doubleTwist® with AirSync™ provides customers with a useful and easy way to auto-sync and back up photos, HD videos and music to and from their home computer. With a Wi-Fi connection, customers can easily sync their media wirelessly and at no additional cost. The doubleTwist Player lets customers enjoy their favorite tunes and videos directly from their phone while on the go. The Galaxy S 4G also comes preloaded with Slacker Radio, offering music fans more than 130 genre stations and ability to create their own custom stations for free.

With a slim and sleek design, the Galaxy S 4G’s 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen display gives customers a vivid, sharp viewing experience, whether consumers choose to watch a movie or read a book or newspaper with the preloaded Kindle for Android application while on the go. Powered by Android™ 2.2, the Galaxy S 4G is equipped with a speedy Samsung 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application Processor, an ST-Ericsson M5720 HSPA+ 4G modem to enable theoretical peak downloads of up to 21 Mbps, a 5 megapixel camera, a pre-installed 16GB microSD memory card, and a 1650 mAh lithium ion battery.

Don’t forget we saw T-Mobile campaigning against the AT&T/Verizon iPhones almost immediately upon the Red iPhone announcement:

I know we’re a little bit biased as a collective crowd… but I couldn’t help myself:

  1. This poll is a trap!!!!!!!

  2. I’ll stick with my Nexus S. Go stock or go home.

  3. I can’t believe that I just voted for the iphone on verizon. This is only because I will never buy another samsung phone again. Jdog25 is right, the poll is a trap, but you gotta vote.

  4. Verizon iPhone. The problem with the Galaxy S 4G is Samsung. I’d rather know that I will get updates. If it were the exact same phone in every way but from HTC or Motorola, I would choose the Galaxy S

  5. I agree with jdog25! Why is phandroid trying to shove samsung products down our throats!!?? Haha

  6. what a bunch of crapware in a piece of crapware.

  7. I f I have to choose out of those three it would Verizon iPhone. I hate Apple, but I hate Samsung even more.

  8. Not buying but good to also see a 1650 battery vs a 1500….

  9. as much as I dislike samsung, I hate iJunk even more :) I’m sure it’ll get rooted and CM7 will make it complete.

  10. Its not a trap. I just didnt vote…..lol

  11. The way its looking, no one will offer more than 1 dual core on their network at the same time right now.
    I heard T Mobile is getting the LG dual core phone, which looks real nice.

  12. I just can’t believe it that T-Mobile had a second chance to get the Galaxy S right, and they still screwed it up by not adding the camera flash. So far, Sprint is the only one to get it right in the U.S.

    Not even the Nexus S had it right by skimping out on gorilla glass or a SD slot.

  13. I hope sales for this phone do horrible after the way customers have been done with the first s wave! Traded mine in for a good android handset! G2 baby!

  14. It’s Samsung, who cares…..

  15. The Samsung hate is getting beyond ridiculous.

  16. @Charlotte: Unfortunately, it is (arguably) well deserved hate. Samsung has all but admitted they care very little for the customer once their phones are sold.

    Having said that, I still voted for sammy, as Jobs and apple is worse.

  17. HTC whatever on Sprint.

  18. I’d rather put ice in my beer than get another samsung phone.

  19. i agree Charlotte lol. The Sony hate I can almost understand but even then this Apple, sony, and Samsung hate is silly

  20. They just announced that this phone will ship with Android 2.2 froyo hahaha… there is your update galaxy s owners. Wait another 8 months to get a new galaxy s phone and get the update to gingerbread! Damn you Samsung! You are giving Android a bad reputation!

  21. fuck you die in a fire. #neveragain
