It was a long wait, but customers who walk into an AT&T store finally have a legitimate high-end Android phone to purchase. The Samsung Captivate is AT&T’s version of the Galaxy S and it goes on sale July 18th for $199.
The most notable feature of the Samsung Captivate is its 4 inch Super AMOLED display, but I think I’m most excited about the PowerVR SGX540 graphics processor. This GPU offers 2x the performance compared to the previous SGX530 core that was found in the Droid and Droid X and I can’t wait to see how it performs in our round of benchmarks.
We will be posting a full review later this week, but check out our quick unboxing video to hold you over. If you have any questions or things you would like to see addressed, please leave a comment and we will do our best to respond.
