The world tour continues for Samsung's Galaxy S line of handsets with news that China is set to see three variations of the device. Starting later this month with China Telecom, the country's largest carriers will have a model built specifically with their 3G varying standards in mind.

Announced earlier today at the China World Exhibition, each device will come with the familiar 4-inch Super AMOLED display and 1GHz processor found in similar models. However, China Unicom's GT-19088 will have WCDMA support, whereas China Telecom's SCH-I909 will offer support for both CDMA and GSM networks. China Mobile completes the triumvirate with its TD-SCDMA model (GT-I9008), which is somewhat unique with iChinese CMMB mobile TV service and the Ophone 2.0 build of Android.

The Galaxy S has already seen a tremendous reception in other parts of the world with global sales already topping 3 million units. Launching in China will only add to Android's success and worldwide adoption.
