Galaxy S Models

NOTE: When I originally wrote this page in 2010 there were FAR fewer Galaxy models from Samsung.  At that time I had no idea how big the Galaxy branded device list would grow.  It very soon became too big for me to maintain.  Here is an incomplete list of Samsung Galaxy device models, compiled mainly from XDA:

All Samsung Galaxy S (1) handset models share the following primary specifications:

  • 512MB ROM
  • 4” Super AMOLED display (800 X 480 Resolution, 16.7 million colours.)
  • Android 2.1 +
  • 5 Megapixel Rear Camera with HD video recording (720P at 30 frames per sec.)
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/b/n

However, different variants of the Galaxy S have different hardware features. Some have a front facing camera, some have a flash, and some have a physical keyboard. They also ship in 8GB or 16GB versions with the exception of the Epic 4G which only has 2GB of built-in storage.
