Samsung Galaxy R

Samsung in cooperation with NVIDIA has just officially announced the latest Samsung Galaxy phone, dubbed Samsung Galaxy R. Featuring the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, the this smartphone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has a 4.19 inch touchscreen. To be specific about it, said screen display is a Super LCD touchscreen which could very well be a toned-down version of the Super AMOLED Plus screen display of the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy R also features a GeForce GPU which gives you fast mobile web browsing experience, even made better by an accelerated Adobe Flash player support. The phone also supports full HD video as well as console-like gaming experience. Being a Tegra-powered phone, this device will also provide you with access to the Tegra Zone app on the Android Market so that you can enjoy Tegra-optimized games.

Specs of the Samsung Galaxy R phone include:

  • Tegra 2 super chip
  • 4.19″ WVGA Super Clear LCD touchscreen
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system
  • 720p HD video capture and 1080p Full HD playback (DivX, WMV, MP4, H.264 B/P only)
  • Built-in memory of 8GB and support for 32GB Micro SD
  • Size: 125.7 x 66.7 x 9.55 mm
  • Weight: 131 grams

The Samsung Galaxy R should arrive Sweden and other regions such as North & Eastern Europe, South East & West Asia, Middle Easy Asia and China. No words yet on whether Samsung is releasing this Android smartphone in the U.S. Even if it is planning to do so, it will probably take a longer time for this phone to land on the U.S. market, considering that its flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S II is not yet widely available in the U.S.
