Samsung Galaxy S to all 4 major U.S. carriers

A new report from Forbes is suggesting that Samsung will launch their Galaxy S phone on all four of the largest U.S. carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon) this year. We have already seen evidence the device was coming to AT&T and maybe T-Mobile, but this is the first mention of a possible CDMA version for Sprint and Verizon.

In a recent research report, Broadpoint.AmTech analyst Mark McKechnie said he expects the Galaxy S to be sold at AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint by the end of June and to be carried by at Verizon “sometime later in the year”. The report suggest Samsung was unable to lock up an exclusive deal after they failed to impress with their previous Android handsets.

“It’s a pretty impressive Android-based phone with a great display, but Samsung doesn’t have the same brand strength as Apple or even Motorola,”Mark McKechnieBroadpoint.AmTech analyst

Samsung is the world’s second largest cellphone maker, but they trail behind HTC and others in smartphone shipments. It is their goal to triple smartphone shipments this year, so bringing the high-end Galaxy S to all big carriers would set them in the right direction.

Google’s Nexus One is still the only Android phone which has been announced to arrive on the four largest nationwide carriers. If the Samsung Galaxy S can achieve the same feat (and actually be available in retail stores) it will be interesting to see which one comes out on top in sales.

    Sounds good to me! Well i’m hoping for SOMETHING good for T-Mobile… if not I guess i’ll have to get a MyTouch 3G Slide

    This phone doesn’t excite me. I like the screen tech and am hoping to see Super AMOLED implemented on other phones, but Samsung’s phones have always struck me as being cheap (I should know, I own one), and the interface they made for Android looks gross, IMO.

    • I would agree with you, but my wife totally loved her Samsung phone, and really wants this, so for her sake, I hope this story is true :).
      Even though they still went the weird skin route, this one seems much less offensive than what was on the Behold II, and the home launcher could easily be replaced (love HelixLauncher2!!!).
      And I really want to see how good this screen is :)

    i love the specs of this phone but honestly the UI is so disgusting and looks like a cheap Chinese knockoff of iPhone with all the grids and pages of apps, and it’s Samsung, so I have no confidence in it…it’s sure to have bugs everywhere, and little to no fixes, as well as very late Android updates.

    It’s not worth it. Motorola takes things seriously, Samsung just makes products, throws them out and sees what happens. Oh, your battery meter is never accurate and never displays 100%? Maybe we’ll fix that in 4 months.

    Wow, I was expecting a lot more excitement, but it looks like we have a lot of disgruntled samsung customers in here. I’m actually stoked that the Galaxy S could be landing on all 4 major U.S. carriers. Personally i don’t know why someone would want a nexclusive deal with a carrier since they limit themselves to only a fraction of the entire market.

    The custom UI on the samsung Galaxy S is light years ahead of what we saw on the Behold II. It’s a lot cleaner and though they call it “TouchWiz” is does not resemble any of their older UI builds. The only thing I don’t like about it is the app drawer. You now have to flick through pages of apps (left and right). The Super ALOMED should be amazing and if the GPU/CPU combo holds up, the Galaxy S could be the best Android phone for gaming.

    Somehow I just can’t get excited about a Samsung device. I wish the Evo would come to all 4 carriers, if not that, then the desire, or an android version of the HD2.

    I’ve had really good luck with my HTC devices, and the only non HTC device I can think of that might make me switch is the Dell Mini 5/Streak. I am still undecided on that one. As a woman, I would love a phone with a 5″ screen that I could stick in my purse, and be able to use as a phone, an internet device or a navigation device. That 5″ screen would be really nice. I’d miss my G1 keyboard, but it doesn’t look like any of the phones I am interested in will have a physical keyboard.

    Plastic screen. Scratch magnet. Seems cheap.

    UI is horrendous. iPhone but much worse. HTC Sense looks awesome compared to it. Heck vanilla Android looks awesome compared to it.

  7. Ted C.Guest 5 years ago

    Now let’s hope that they are only going to make one or two actual models (a GSM one and a CDMA one perchance) so that we don’t end up with phones that are technically not locked but functionally are not useful on more than one network (read… restricted to 2G except on the preferred network). This is really the big flaw in Google’s Nexus strategy.
