The Samsung Galaxy 5, also named Samsung GT-I5500, Samsung GT-I5503, Samsung Galaxy Europa, Samsung Galaxy 550, Samsung Corby Smartphone and Samsung Corby Android in some countries, is a smartphone. It uses the open source Android operating system (OS). It was announced on June 15, 2010.[1][2]

Specifications[edit]

The phone measures 108 millimetres (4.3 in) x 56 millimetres (2.2 in) x 12.3 millimetres (0.48 in). It ships with Android 2.1 Eclair (or 2.2 Froyo) operating system and supports the HSDPA ("3.5G") mobile telephony protocol at 7.2 Mbit/s. The user interface features a capacitive touchscreen but does not support multi-touch as found on high end smartphones. The 2.8 inches (71 mm) screen supports QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) resolution with a 16M color depth. The communication features include Bluetooth, 3G, Wi-Fi and A-GPS.

Android[edit]

When originally released, the phone came with Android 2.1 as the preinstalled OS. As of August 2011, most phones are shipping with Android 2.2 Froyo. Most carriers allow an update from Android 2.1 to 2.2 via the Samsung Kies software package, that is bundled with the phone. Froyo brought many new features to the phone, including voice dialling.

Unofficially, the phone can run up to Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread, 4.0.4 ICS or 4.3 Jelly Bean and 4.4.2 kitkat via three different ports of CyanogenMod made by the same group.[3] At this time, these ports have, together, over 110,000 installations at Samsung i5500 devices.[4]
