Will the S8000 be Samsung's first Android phone?


In an occurrence that seems to be happening on an almost weekly basis as of late, an online retailer has put up details about a thus far unannounced device. This time around, it’s the Samsung S8000. They caught their error after a few hours – but not before much of the spec sheet had began its adventure across the internet.

GSMArena managed to catch most of the droolworthy details: 3.1″ WVGA AMOLED Display, 5 megapixel shooter with flash, 2 GB internal memory, 3.5 mm audio jack, FM radio, Wi-Fi, GPS (and A-GPS), and Bluetooth 2.1. That’s all fine and dandy – especially considering they packed it all into a 12mm body – but the most interesting bit: according to the product page, it’s an Android phone.

Samsung has promised 3 Android phones are on the way, so this could most certainly be one of those. Lacking a physical QWERTY keyboard or a slider of any sort, it shares a form factor with the soon (but not as soon as before) to be released HTC Magic. Unlike the Magic, the S8000 has a 3.5mm headset jack. We can’t wait.
