The Samsung Galaxy S is a smartphone made by Samsung. It is the first smartphone of the Samsung Galaxy S series. It is the first device of the third Android smartphone series produced by Samsung.[2] It was announced to the press in March 2010 and released for sale in June 2010. Due to shortage of Super AMOLED displays, Samsung released a successor to the device called Samsung Galaxy SL and ceased production of the original model.

The Galaxy S is produced in over two dozen versions. The international reference version features a 1 GHz ARM processor, 2 or 4 GB of internal storage, a 4 in (10 cm) 480×800 pixel Super AMOLED display, Wi-Fi, a 5-megapixel camera and a 0.3-megapixel second front-facing camera.[3] other models may include radios or changes to button layouts, keyboards, screens, cameras or the Android OS.

At the time of release, the Galaxy S included the fastest graphics of any smartphone,[4] was the thinnest smartphone at 9.9 mm[5] and was the first Android phone to be certified for HD.[6]

As of 2013, over 25 million Galaxy S units have been sold.[7] The Galaxy S name continued on with the semi-related Galaxy S Plus and Galaxy S Advance smartphones. The next release of the series was the Samsung Galaxy S II, which was released in May 2011.
