Is the Samsung T959 for T-Mobile the Samsung Galaxy S?

The Bluetooth SIG has just approved the Samsung SCH-T959. This is the typical naming scheme given to a cellular device set for release with T-Mobile USA. Judging from the images and information that we have available to us, the SCH-T959 is set to run Android along with Samsung’s own TouchWiz 3.0 user interface. Furthermore, it has a 4”-AMOLED touchscreen display along with Bluetooth. Indeed, this device has recently secured its Wi-Fi certificate too.

If this SCH-T959 is the Samsung’s Galaxy S, which it certainly appears to be, then there is an obvious error in the description above. The Samsung Galaxy S is marketed with a Super AMOLED and not the “basic” AMOLED display listed above. As UnwiredView point out, the User Agent Profile has the display at a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. This doesn’t fit either. Right now the facts are not in complete alignment and this makes a conclusive decision as to whether the Samsung T959 is actually the Samsung Galaxy S, but my hunch really suggests that it is. How about you?
