Samsung Galaxy S Lands In Two More Countries, Brazil And ChinaBy cheatmaster 05:11 Sat, 10 Jul 2021 Comments
Samsung Galaxy S made it to Brazil and it seems that along the way it has picked up a strange appendix pointing from its top. Yup, it's a digital TV antenna. Unlike the other Galaxy S versions spread around the globe, the Brazilian Galaxy S comes with ISDB-Tb Digital TV on board. Oh, and it's pretty overpriced.
As for the rest of the features, you should be familiar with them since those are common for the Brazilian and the non-Brazilian Galaxy S variants. So, you'll find the same gorgeous 4-inch Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) touchclassy screen of WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution as well as the 5MP autofocus capturing camera on the back which is capable of shooting HD videos (720p@30fps).

To refresh your memory, the Galaxy S is powered by a quick 1Giga Hertz (GHz) processor and packs an impressive 1500mAh battery. At its launch the Brazilian version will run Android 2.1 (a.k.a. Eclair) but an official Froyo update should follow up pretty soon.
The only downside of the Brazilian Samsung Galaxy S is its price. The SIM-free handset is assumed to cost fine 2400 Brazilian reais (around 1036 euro). Hopefully, the Brazilian operators will offer a better subsidized price at the launch of the phone (some time in September).

By the way, China will apparently acquire the Galaxy S as well (versions for both China Mobile and China Telecom are expected). The one on the picture above is called Samsung I9008 Galaxy S and should become available at the China Mobile stores soon.
Thanks for the tip, Hugo.
