We just told you about the super-slick looking and ultra powerful Samsung i8520%u2026 you know, the one with the projector, 8MP camera, and Super AMOLED screen. Well that phone just got a name%u2026 the Samsung Halo. This isn%u2019t 100% official yet but you can%u2019t get much closer to the truth than Engadget did:
After quizzing a team of perplexed executives of increasing rank, a VP from Samsung%u2019s mobile division finally told us that it%u2019ll be revealed as the %u201CHalo%u201D tomorrow when the show floor opens.
And if you had any doubts about whether or not it is Android-based?
Even though the i8520 clearly seems to run the same UI as the Bada-powered Wave, we%u2019ve been assured by multiple people in Samsung %u2014 including a VP in the Mobile division %u2014 that it is, in fact, running Android 2.1.
I wonder what the %u201Cmost recent%u201D version of Android will be by the time the Halo launches? The Android world is spinning at a ridiculous speed%u2026 and (budda bah bop bah) I%u2019m loving it.
Now this is a COOL phone.
