Samsung Galaxy R outed by NVIDIA, touts 4.2-inch SLCD display and Tegra 2 internals

The Galaxy lineage is a pure success story for Samsung, and the company has no plans on letting the name brand fade out anytime soon. With that in mind, the company, along with NVIDIA, have just unveiled the brand new Samsung Galaxy R, which is available now in Sweden. The device takes some interesting turns versus what we’ve seen in the previous Galaxy line-up, but the differences may be exactly what some folks want, not just around the world, but here in the States, too.

Specifically, the new device features a 4.19-inch Super Clear LCD capacitive touchscreen, with a resolution of 800×480. Tucked away inside is NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor, and the show is run with Android 2.3, better known as Gingerbread. Additional specifications for the Galaxy R include a camera on the back capable of capturing 720p HD video; and there’s 8GB of built-in memory, with a microSD card slot that can hold up to a 32GB card. The device is only 9.55mm thin, which is impressive in of itself. The two main differences between the Galaxy R and the Galaxy S line-up come in the display and processor, but for those who prefer the Super Clear LCD versus AMOLED or Super AMOLED, then the Galaxy R is an option. That is, if you currently live in Sweden, or will be in other expanding markets in Europe or Asia. Check out the video below to see the Galaxy R in action.
