Samsung preparing to release third Android phone

A third Android powered mobile phone will arrive from Samsung before the end of the year.

Last month, Samsung’s first phone to use Google’s operating system, the I7500, emerged online and was soon followed by the Samsung Bigfoot. Now, a third mobile phone from the South Korean electronics giant has been sighted.

Dubbed the Spica, the new smartphone’s confirmed features include a three megapixel camera, a large 3-inch screen and HDSPA support for fast downloads.

The Spica is also reportedly powered by a new edition of Android, codenamed Donut, which is expected to add a raft of new functions not currently offered by the most recent so-called Cupcake update to the operating system.

Currently, only two Android-powered mobile phones are on offer in the UK, namely the HTC Magic and the million-selling T-Mobile G1.

Network carriers have yet to be confirmed but it is thought that T-Mobile is in the frame to secure exclusive rights to at least one of the new Samsung phones.
