Samsung Galaxy SIt has been confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S will be coming exclusively to Optus in July revealed through a press release from the telco this week. The Galaxy S is Samsung’s flagship Android smartphone which was launched in Europe earlier this month after much anticipation.

The Galaxy S has an impressive list of specifications which include a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen (480 x 800), 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB or 16 GB of internal memory (depending on model), microSD card slot supporting up to 32 GB, A-GPS, digital compass and a 5 megapixel camera that supports 720p HD video recording at 30 fps.

As part of the launch arrangement with Samsung, the Galaxy S will be available exclusively through Optus for 4 weeks from 1 July after which other carriers such as Telstra and Vodafone will also likely offer the handset.

Optus is pricing the Galaxy S aggressively offering it on the $59 ‘yes’ Social plan with $0 upfront cost on a 24-month contract. The plan offers customers unlimited Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and MySpace access as well as 1GB of included data per month. Business users have not been left out with the phone also being offered on the $59 ‘Business Complete’ plan with $0 upfront cost on a 24 month contract. This plan includes unlimited voicemail and SMS.

With the Samsung Galaxy S and recently launched HTC Desire (available exclusively through Telstra until the end of the year) Australian Android fans will no doubt be excited about the increasing choice (albeit slowly compared to the U.S and Europe) of Android handsets arriving on our shores.
