logo-bouygues-telecomWe’re hearing noises that the Samsung i7500 will enter the European market in France as the Samsung Galaxy. Shipping in slightly behind schedule, French consumers will be able to grab the i7500 Galaxy in early July and not in June. Things remain a little confusing however, as O2 Germany were meant to release this gem in June and there is no word from them over the claims by France’s Bouygues Telecom stating that they will be the first in Europe to launch this device

A quick recap reveals why so much attention is thrown towards this device. The 5MP camera and the 3.2 touch screen AMOLED display are really just the icing on the cake. The component under the hood are just as impressive, including the full-works in terms of connectivity options as well as a generous 1500 mAh better.

It’s worth noting that the update from i7500 to Galaxy may just be for France. Nothing has been announced for the UK and O2 Germany did not mention this title as part of their previous announcement.
