This is the next generation galaxy smartphone and some of the designed features that are new, it has the 4.27-inch super AMOLED touch screen that's gorgeous as usual and its really super thin as you can see here. It is running Android 2.3 along with TouchWiz 4.0. So, Samsung's user interface is on here. Some of the new features of that are these 4 hubs up here that includes the gaming hub, music, readers hub, and the social hub. With these 3 new hubs here, you should be able to get new gaming content as well as music and books. They have redone some of the widgets, so it is has Flickr interface here.
