Samsung unveils new Android 2.1 powered phone SHW-M100S

We were expecting Samsung would unveil some new Android phones at this month’s Mobile World Congress, but one device has slipped out early. Samsung just announced the M100s which is headed to SK Telecom. The new Android phone comes with an 800MHz processor, 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen (WVGA), 5MP camera with 720p video recording, Wi-Fi (802.11n), GPS, T-DMB, DivX support, and 3.5mm headphone jack.

No details were given on the CPU architecture, but my guess is it includes a Samsung ARM11 processor. The Sprint Samsung Moment featured an 800 MHz Samsung S3C6410 CPU and this is probably the same chipset being used here.

Samsung also chose to include their TouchWiz UI, which first debuted on the T-Mobile Behold II. Pricing is not available, but look for the Samsung M100s to arrive in March on SK Telecom.

There is also no mention of the 3G network the phone can run on. We suspect it is for the South Korean 3G network which is incompatible with WCDMA used in Europe.
