LAS VEGAS -- Verizon and Samsung together on Thursday announced the latter company's first 4G LTE-enabled smartphone, which runs on Google Android 2.2.

  • Android 2.2 operating system
  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen display
  • 1GHz application processor
  • HTML 5 web browser
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Rear-facing 8 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • Front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera
  • Supports video chat
  • Swype for virtual QWERTY keyboard
  • Preloaded with LTE-specific applications
  • Access to Samsung's Media Hub content service and Social Hub platform

Stay tuned.

    Samsung is gonna ride those AMOLED screens to the top of the smartphone heap. They really got their game in high gear with the Galaxy S design.
