Samsung prepping two more Android phones for 2009?
If the latest news from the rumour mill is to be believed, then Samsung is committing itself to the Android cause in a big way.We've already had the A
We’ve already had the Android-based i7500 confirmed as on its way, and now news from Russia (the same place that leaked news on the still unconfirmed S8000) picked up by Unwired View has uncovered two new phones for us to ponder over.
First up is the Bigfoot, or the G2, which we first caught wind of last week. It seems the successor to T-Mobile’s G1 will in fact be made by Samsung, rather than HTC.
This would certainly fall into line with T-Mobile saying it plans to release Android phones from three different manufacturers this year, as reported by Electricpig.
Next up is the Samsung Spica, which will reportedly boast very similar specs to the Bigfoot. However, while the Bigfoot will be a more gaming-orientated device, the Spica will carry a more attractive price tag and keep the Samsung TouchWiz as its main UI.
Both devices are set for an autumn release to fall in line with the 2.0 version of the Android OS, reportedly codenamed Donut. This update will pack support for WVGA displays, but won’t be an automatic update for older phones like Cupcake was.
As always we’ll keep you updated, but in the meantime be sure to check out what we thought of the HTC Magic in our full review.
