Pictures of what is claimed to be a slimmed down edition of the Samsung Galaxy i7500 have appeared online.
Unearthed by a French Android mobile phone site Frandroid, the handset is purported to offer HSDPA support for fast mobile web browsing and downloads as well Wi-Fi.
The phone will also pack in the same Google applications that feature on current-generation Android mobiles, such as YouTube as well as a widget-based home screen for fast access.
Pricing for the mobile is as yet unconfirmed, but it is expected to be on offer for a budget price – potentially making Android phones accessible to consumers who have been frozen out by long contracts and high price points.
O2 officially launched the Samsung Galaxy last week on contract plans, making it the mobile phone network’s first Android powered handset.
Features of the phone include a 3.2-inch touchscreen user interface, as well as five megapixel camera, HSDPA and Bluetooth support and 8GB of storage.
