Is This Samsung's First Android Phone?

Judging from the strangely complete specs and believable photos leaked from a Russian retailer, it may well be. Called the S8000, and carrying an OLED screen and 5-megapixel camera, it's a (theoretical) powerhouse.

Whether or not this leak is real, it hasn't come out of the blue. In February, Samsung promised "more than three" Android handsets by the end of the year, so for one to peek its head out a few months later is within the realm of possibility. Anyway, AndroidGuys grabbed the specs before the product page was pulled:


* 3.1″ AMOLED display, WVGA, 16 million colors
* 5 MP camera with flash
* FM radio
* 2GB internal memory/microSD slot
* 3.5mm jack
* 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 and USB
* Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
* Dual band UMTS (900/2100 MHz)
* DivX and XviD video capable
* 470 Euros, unsubsidized


There's nothing revolutionary here, but the OLED (with its power-saving, battery-extending potential) and 3.5mm headphone jack are both pretty strong selling points. [Android Guys via ElectricPig]
