Samsung shows off Galaxy S Android smartphone

At CTIA Wireless, Samsung has unveiled its latest creation–the Galaxy S smarphone. The Galaxy S is expected to usher in a new era of mobile phones for the Korean based company. All future smartphones will use Super AMOLED displays with Samsung’s new 1 GHz processors.

From the PR shots, the phone seems to have a front facing camera (see below). I guess we’ll know the rest of the juicy details soon enough. We do know that the new screen will be 20% brighter, 80% less reflective, and allow 20% better battery life.

UPDATE: Yup, it looks like there is a “VGA Telephony Camera” according to BusinessWire. Can’t wait to see how they implement it. Will it use Skype, or some other unknown service that Samsung has been working on?
