Samsung has taken the wraps off its latest Android smartphone - the Galaxy S, based on version 2.1 of the Google mobile OS.

The S sports a 4in, 800 x 480 OLED touchscreen and a 5Mp camera with 720p HD video recording. Assisted GPS provides location data, while Samsung's own Layar UI handles augmented reality tasks.

The phone's "Social Hub" brings together in all your social networking connections.

The Galaxy S has a 1GHz processor powering all this, though Samsung didn't name the type. It has 16GB of on-board storage, expandable with Micro SDHC cards of up to 32GB capacity.

The phone will communicate by 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0, though it's not the first handset with these capabilities that Samsung has announced. That prize goes to the Bada OS-based Wave, unveiled in February.

The 122 x 64 x 10mm, 118g S also has quad-band GSM/Edge and tri-band 3G HSDPA.
