Getting to Know the Samsung i7500 (PHOTOS)

i7500_003It didn’t take long to go from rumor to press release – the Samsung i7500 is officially headed to Europe this June.  It’s a beautiful looking phone that has a lot of Samsung feel to it, but what about the stuff inside?  Oh… That’s even better!

  • HSDPA, GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900
  • 3.2″, 320×480 AMOLED screen
  • 5MP camera
  • 1500mAh battery
  • 8GB of internal memory (support 32GB SDHC cards)
  • 802.11b/g, WiFi, GPS
  • 3.5mm headphone plug
  • 12mm thick

Three of the main points of contention with the HTC handsets so far are the ridiculously low amount of storage capacity, the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the battery life.  Both of those problems are addressed with Samsung’s handset.  With 8GB internal memory to start, there is more than enough room for apps, music, documents, and games.

At 1500mAh, the battery already bests the G1’s life.  What really intrigues us is the AMOLED screen.  How much effect will that have on battery life?  There are many plus sides to these types of screen, but one big negative is the way they look in bright sunlight.

Here are a couple of photos from which show the i7500 from other angles.  Notice the “with Google” on the back of the battery cover?  Wonder if this will be standard fare for all Android handsets?
