In case you thought that Samsung is done updating the original Galaxy S lineup, you were wrong. A yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy S Advance has emerged in photos and a YouTube video, thus bringing yet another member to the device family, which the I9000 Galaxy S started two years ago.
The upcoming smartphone, which carries the GT-I9070 moniker sports a dual-core CPU, clocked at 1GHz - a first for a Galaxy S phone. Its design has been refreshed as well - the device sports a slightly curved screen and a 3.5mm audio jack at its bottom, a la Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
The rest of the known specs are practically unchanged from those of the I9000. The screen is a 4" Super AMOLED with WVGA resolution. A 5MP camera, capable of recording 720p videos can be found on the back. The battery is with capacity of 1500 mAh.
The Galaxy S Advance will sport Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread when released. Given the dual-core CPU on board though, an Ice Cream Sandwich update is more than likely. You can see a video of the handset in action below.
Expect to see the new member of the Galaxy S family get unveiled at MWC in Barcelona next month. We will be on the spot, so expect the full scoop on the smartphone as soon as we get it.
