Samsung Android phone spotted

A device that could be Samsung’s first Android phone has been spotted today in the Netherlands. At a dealer show in Amsterdam, this blurry image was taken of a screen showing what is reported to be Samsung’s first Android handset. The petite, candy bar like phone clearly shows that its running Android, but that’s about the only thing clear at the moment.

According to the Dutch website that broke the story, the Samsung phone hasn’t been named yet. It does suggest that the following features are likely to appear:

  • A 528 MHz processor
  • Camera function with a 3.2 to 5 megapixel camera
  • MicroSD memory slot
  • Quad-band GSM support
  • 3G support

Samsung will release one set for U.S. markets and another for Europe/Asia

I’ve never been a fan of tiny, candy bar phones, but I’ll withhold my judgment until more photos and details emerge. If Samsung is willing to display the phone to dealers, an official announcement and hands-on are likely to follow.
