The Samsung Galaxy S 4G LTE also known as the Droid Charge (Verizon), Galaxy S Aviator (U.S. Cellular) and Galaxy S Lightray 4G (MetroPCS, includes DyleTV), is an Android smartphone manufactured by Samsung. It has a 1 GHz "Hummingbird" processor, front and rear cameras, and CDMA and 4G LTE radios. It was announced at CES 2011 under the name Samsung Galaxy S 4G LTE device. It is available from Verizon Wireless.



The Galaxy S 4G LTE has the S5PC110 processor. This processor combines a 45 nm 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 based CPU core with a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU made by Imagination Technologies which supports OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0[4] and is capable of up to 90 million triangles per second.[5] The CPU core, code-named "Hummingbird", was co-developed by Samsung and Intrinsity.[6]


The Samsung Galaxy S 4G LTE uses a 4.3-inch (110 mm) Super AMOLED Plus touch screen covered by Gorilla Glass, a special crack and scratch resistant material. The screen is a WVGA standard RGB stripe display manufactured by Samsung.


The Samsung Galaxy S 4G LTE uses Swype technology as well as the standard QWERTY input methods. The Galaxy S 4G LTE incorporates a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera as well as a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. In early June 2011, the EE4 update was released to fix some minor bugs within the device. In early December 2011, 2.3.6 Gingerbread was beginning to be pushed out to devices with the "EP4" update. Subsequent updates were codenamed "FP5" and "FP8". Gingerbread was the last Android version to appear on the Galaxy S 4G LTE ; Samsung never released 4.0+, stating that an update (with TouchWiz) would not fit on the Galaxy S 4G LTE 's ROM.
