Samsung’s 2.1 Powered M100S Debuts in South Korea [UPDATED]

Samsung has announced another new Android handset, this one destined to stay back home in South Korea.   Like most everything else we’ve seen from the handset maker, it’s a touch-only phone.  Dubbed the SHW-M100S, this marks the first Android 2.1 to come from Samsung. 

The specs are right in line with other recent Android handsets. It features a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, 5 megapixel camera with 720p support, WiFi (802.11n), GPS, T-DMB, DivX support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. There’s an 800MHz processor under the hood and the UI is a new version of TouchWiz. Based on the few pictures we’ve seen so far, we’re fans of the evolved interface.  There’s no sign of any silly ‘cubes’ to be found!

Pricing has not been determined as of yet. Look for the M100S next month (March) on SK Telecom.
