AT&T Samsung i897: Android with no Custom UI

By Peter Chubb - May 28, 2010

For those of you who are tired of all those AT&T Android handsets that look the same, then you will be pleased to know that the sleek and sexy looking Samsung i897 has been spotted in the wild. Looking at the images thanks to AndroidGuys, you will see that it strikes a huge resemblance to the Galaxy S – on the inside only.

The handset comes with a 4-inch AMOLED display – just hope that it does not have stock issues like the HTC Droid Incredible – and a 5-megapixal camera. Other features include that ever-popular 1GHz Snapdragon processor – sounds very much like the Google Nexus One when you look at those specs.

It is said that the Samsung i897 will come with Android 2.1 and that AT&T will not touch its interface – meaning consumers will get the full Android experience. If this is true then the smartphone will get an update to Android 2.2 Froyo much sooner than many other handsets.

This is all the information available for the moment, but we are certain that more details will follow soon. Visit AndroidGuys via the link above for more images of the Samsung i897.
