Samsung Galaxy i5700 official in Russia
The Samsung Galaxy i5700 handset, which is nearly identical to the previously spotted Android handset of the same name, has been officially unveiled for sale in Russia. The handset will be known as the Galaxy Spica and sport an 800MHz CPU, 128MB of RAM, and a 3.2-inch touchscreen display. There is also a 3.2-megapixel camera, along with support for microSDHC memory cards up to 32GB in capacity.
The device will also have the ability to play back common video file formats, and there is both a compass and a GPS sensor. Power comes from a 1500 mAh battery. As visible from the home screen and from previous leaks, the Galaxy Spica uses the Android operating system.
The Samsung Galaxy Spica should ship in Russia in November for the equivalent of $480. [via Unwired]
