Galaxy Apollo Confirmed as i5801

The Galaxy Apollo was spotted online late last week on Samsung’s UK site for smart phones.  At the time we suggested it could be a variant of the M100S (Galaxy A) which launched in Korea earlier this year.  Wireless provider Orange has confirmed it as the i5801 and is now listing the phone as “coming soon”.  We also get our first official details of the handset as well.

The Samsung Galaxy Apollo features a 3.2-inch touch screen as well as a 3-megapixel camera w/ autofocus and 4X digital zoom.  The quad-band phone also has an FM radio and the usual support for WiFi, 3G, and Bluetooth. It’s not mentioned what version of Android the Galaxy Apollo has but we’re guessing 2.1. By contrast, the M100S (Galaxy A) boasts a 3.7-inch AMOLED display and 5 megapixel camera.  It’s quite possible that the Apollo will be a budget-conscious handset aimed at the masses.
