Samsung Galaxy S spied with T-Mobile apps

It was reported that the Samsung Galaxy S would come to all four major carriers in the United States and it looks like that prediction is coming true. A version for AT&T was already spotted and today we received a video of the T-Mobile model.

Howard Chui of HowardForums has uploaded a video to YouTube which provides a quick hands on of the new Samsung Galaxy S. The model number of the phone is SGH-T959 which is the same one that appeared last month. Pretty much every Samsung phone that has the model SGH-TXXX is made for T-Mobile. For example, the T-Mobile Samsung Behold II has the model number SGH-T939.

Besides the model number, several T-Mobile Android apps were spotted in the video. We can clearly see the My Account, Help, Visual Voicemail, and something call TMO contact.

Howard reports that the Samsung Humminbird processor feels faster than the Snapdragon that has been used in many popular HTC phones. Unfortunately, there is no flash on the 5 megapixel camera, but it can capture high def (720p) video.

    Any idea of when this is coming out? Between this and the announcement that Google will stop selling the Nexus One online and instead sell it in stores with better choices for voice/data plans, I’m having trouble making up my mind on which to go with.

    Go with the nexus one its already going to get 2.2 froyo in like two weeks

    Stab Master I’m with you man… im torn between the two… if this phone wasn’t a Samsung it would’ve made this choice alot easier… *sigh*

    Why does T-Mobile CONTINUE to get 2nd rate Android Devices?!?!? How do you expect to be a worthy contender when your (Possibly) best device has no flash and no HDMI output.? Ive been with T-MO since ’03″ bacc when C.Z.J was running the ads. I dont wanna leave, but a SAMSUNG flash-less device isn’t helping the cause. (long sigh)

    Let’s even think about the timetable for a 2.2 froyo OTA update for the S.G.S.
    (Even longer sigh)

      Umm, nexus one works on t-mobile and is a 1st rate device. if you’ve been w/ tmob for that long ask about a legacy credit. I’ve been w/ them since before they were t-mobile (voicestream) back in 99. they gave me a $50 credit on my bill when I told them I was considering leaving for Verizon

    • http://Website ObsceneJesster

      Second rate??? WTF are you talking about? This will be the most powerful phone released this year. It has a ARM Cortex A8 processor paired with a Hummingbird GPU chipset. It can process graphics 3 times faster than any phone available right now. I will gladly trade power for a camera flash. If I want to take quality pictures I will use my digital camera.

  • http://Website Earthrazer

    First of all, who needs HDMI out when the phone is packing DLNA? (Huge win for me)

    Flash is meh, and rumors are whispering that Froyo/2.2 will indeed be available on the Galaxy S when it launches, which is perfectly believable, given that Android fragmentation has been such a concern, 2.2 looks like the benchmark for new phones ASAP.

  • http://Website plainbrad

    No camera flash? That is a dealbreaker for *me*

    And I have seen mixed rumors about a qwerty on this phone but a qwerty is very important for *me*

    Looks like this isn’t a phone for me.

    • http://Website JaylanPHNX

      I was disappointed about the lack of a camera flash until I remembered that my Cliq XT takes great pictures in low light so long as I leave the flash OFF. I’ve not yet taken a good picture with the flash on, so maybe on a good camera the flash really is unnecessary (unless you want to take washed-out pictures in the dark).

    • http://Website irishg

      no need for flash with low light setting flash is overated

  • http://Website Anonymous

    AH! So THIS may be the phone I did a Usability Study at T-Mobile for… At the time the Model name said Behold 3.

    After playing with it for a few hours (in a very early state) I have to say the stuff they’ve done with the interface IS PRETTY NICE. They’re doing some pretty innovative things with their Custom UI, so don’t be too quick to hate on it. For example, the notification drawer has toggles for wifi/gps/etc. built right into it. And when you use their custom Music app (beautifully done app, btw) a widget shows up in the notification drawer with now playing information and the ability to play/pause/skip.

    They also have a system for placing and rearranging home screen icons/widgets that gives you more flexibility than default android, and those dots along the top are great for immediately switching to the home screen you want.

    Their contacts app makes finding contacts a lot easier through their fast scroll system along the side.

    So definitely not the disaster that floating cube thing was… I kept skipping the Samsung S articles but this phone is actually looking pretty nice. Ya it would be nice to have the Incredible or the EVO 4G on T-Mobile, I agree, but I don’t know if I’d call this “2nd rate”.

    • http://Website Terran

      So Innovative that it looks just like the iPhone?

      It’s still one of the best Android phones coming out this year, but Samsung could’ve done a better job with the ui rather that imitate Apple’s.

      • http://Website ObsceneJesster

        May look like a iPhone but this device is 3 times faster than a iPhone.

  • http://Website Ishy

    This I like. The widget menu when he holds the home page would be killer if you can place your own favorite apps in there. I did think the iPhone-esque menu was pretty lame but I do prefer a horizontal menu over the vertical ones in android.

    If tmo could ever get there device up to par I’d be all over this. I’m gonna have to wait until Sprint comes out with one. I think I’m already over the EVO…. Unless it gets rooted.

  • http://Website Mike

    Been waiting on this phone for months. This is good enough reason for me to stick with T-Mobile!

  • http://Website nate

    could this be project emerald?

    • http://Website Malcolm

      Project Emerald is the Android ‘Sidekick Twist”.

  • http://Website Se7en2

    This news still doesn’t make me regret placing my pre-order for the EVO. Also, having a Behold II, I know how slow Samsung is with updating their software (still on 1.5, for those not in the know). Can’t wait for June fourth.

    • http://Website joeskie

      you moron. the behold 2 has android 1.6 on it. leave it to another uninformed hater. probably dont even own a behold. i wish your father would have pulled out.
