UPDATE: Samsung Galaxy Pro launching in the UK in Q2, full spec sheet

This one’s been a bit of a mess. Sorry. The new Samsung Galaxy Pro QWERTY Android phone was announced this morning, then we got the nice photograph of it a bit later – and finally, at 6:08pm, we received the official press release from Samsung UK.

It confirms the stats in a little more detail. The Galaxy Pro’s 800MHz processor setup does support Adobe’s Flash Player 10.1, the 2.8″ LQVGA (!) screen runs at 320×240, the OS is skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface and it has all the usual GPS and wi-fi feature we expect from an Android phone.

Here’s an unglamorous screen capture of the spec sheet.

Xvid certified. That’s a nice little feature that’s always handy for those who play a lot of media on their phones. Here’s the press release:

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
