Soon: Samsung Halo i8520, Galaxy 5 i5500
Spotted in the one of the stores in Shopesville, GreenHills are two upcoming Android smartphones from Samsung — the Samsung i8520 (Halo) and the Galaxy 5 i5500.
The Samsung Halo i8520 is more commonly known as the Galaxy Beam comes with a built-in projector (3.7″ Super AMOLED, 720MHz processor, Android 2.1). The stores puts the estimated price at Php29,000+.
The Samsung i5500 Galaxy 5 is the cheaper model and also known as the Corby Smartphone. Also comes with Android 2.1 running on a 600MHz processor. The estimated price is Php9,000+.
Of course, these are gray market prices and could change once the handsets are officially introduced in the Philippines. I think the Samsung Galaxy S will remain as their flagship phone.
