Last week there were rumors and speculations regarding the specifications of Samsung Galaxy U mobile phone – the Asian brother of Galaxy S. But on 20th August 2010 Samsung has officially presented the mobile device for the South Korean mobile provider LG U+, confirming the rumored specifications. The most noticeable difference at first glance between Galaxy U and Galaxy S is the display’s size – Galaxy U features a 3.7-inch touchscreen display while the other Galaxy member has a 4-inch screen, both having 16M colors, 480×800 pixels resolution, manufactured using the Super AMOLED technology.
Taking a further look on the Galaxy U, you can see another interesting difference – the internal storage is 8GB against 2GB for “S”.
