It is expected that the Samsung Galaxy S has sales ranging from 10 to 15 million telephones, most units get Samsung Wave, can make the Koreans to overcome to HTC in global smartphone sales.
In Korea of the South, the operator KT It has had to delay the departure of Nexus One due to the lack of screens, and returning to HTC, It is the found alternative are Super TFT LCD displays developed by S-LCD, company owned in equal parts by Samsung and Sony. Screens keep good autonomy and perhaps better resolution than the AMOLED, but perhaps worst angles of vision and contrast.
