Samsung has not yet officially announced the device code-named Bigfoot, but details on it have been emerging at a steady stream. The latest of these are a new picture and a few additional specifications of this Android-based smartphone.
The new image is in-line with previous reports of this model, though it shows this model may be hipper than previously though, sporting a bright green casing and stereo speakers. Still, this fits with Android's consumer focus.
In addition, this device will have an AM-OLED touchscreen, according to an unconfirmed report on BGR. This would make it one of several phones from Samsung with this type of display -- a type which is thinner and requires less power than standard LCDs.
The Bigfoot will supposedly be the replacement for the T-Mobile G1, and according to previous reports will hit the U.S. market this fall. The BGR source insists it will be on the market "very soon," though they didn't get any more specific than that.
What Previous Rumors Say about the Bigfoot
This upcoming model will reportedly debut running Android 2.0, an upcoming version of Google's operating system for smartphones. This will have more multimedia capabilities than its predecessor.
For hardware, the Bigfoot will allegedly include a 3-inch QVGA, capacitive touchscreen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, wireless broadband, 3 MPx camera, and a microSD card slot.
It's not yet known what T-Mobile USA will charge for this model, not what its official name will be.
