There’s little in the way of proof that the following specifications are accurate, but according to one of Android Central’s “tried-and-true” tipsters, we now have the tentative specs for the Samsung Galaxy S Pro. Software wise, the Galaxy S Pro is said to be presently running Android 2.1 with Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 overlay. In terms of hardware, you have a WVGA Super AMOLED display (possibly the same unit found on the non-Pro Galaxy S), 5 megapixel camera with 720p video recording, front-facing camera, 512MB RAM, 8.2 GB of internal memory, and a custom 1GHz Cortex A8 processor. As for radios, it’s said that the Galaxy S Pro will run on both Sprint’s EV-DO and WiMAX networks, with a space for a SIM card indicating that we’re looking at HSDPA roaming for Europe and Asia. GPS isn’t mentioned but is surely a given, and the Wi-Fi chip will support the b/g/n protocols. Where build quality is concerned, the tipster did single out various components as feeling “plasticy”, although with the unit in question being a prototype, we won’t let that worry us just yet.

It seems that there was a bit of doubt surrounding yesterday’s leak of the Sprint-bound Samsung Galaxy S Pro. Well in order to put the debate to rest, two new images of what’s shaping up to be a really nice Android handset. They don’t reveal a whole lot of new information, but we can clearly see that there’s an LED flash underneath the 5 megapixel camera (something which the regular Galaxy S doesn’t have) and that the phone does indeed carry both Galaxy S and 4G WiMAX branding. Click on through to check out an image of the splash screen which is adorned with the Galaxy S logo. More →
This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve discussed the Samsung Galaxy S Pro, but this definitely is the first time we’ve seen anything that isn’t claimed to be anything but mock-up. According to Android Community, the image you see before you is of an honest to goodness Galaxy S Pro in the wild. Apparently it could be headed to a bunch of carriers just like the regular Galaxy Pro, but for now this particular model — complete with 4G WiMAX and a front-facing camera — will be exclusive to Sprint.

Samsung’s Galaxy S, an Android 2.1 smartphone first unveiled at CTIA 2010, made a good impression thanks not only to its above average specs but its 4″ WVGA Super AMOLED capacitive display. Easily a front-runner for the most gorgeous screen on a mobile phone to date, it appears Samsung is convinced not everyone will be keen to leave greasy fingerprints all over the display as word is the Korean company is working hard on finishing up the Galaxy S Pro. Rumored to be nearly identical to the Galaxy S when it comes to critical specs, the Galaxy S Pro would mainly be differentiated by its full-QWERTY keypad. Speaking for ourselves we’re not super enthusiastic about this idea based on nothing more than Samsung’s track record of unimpressive keypads, but we’re curious to know what you all think of this.
