T-Mobile Going With “Galaxy S 4G”, Not Continuing Vibrant Line?

While the US has more than its fair share of Galaxy S flavors, we didn’t get a pure “Samsung Galaxy S” among the choices. The carriers may be looking to simplify things in the future, as T-Mobile has announced that its new HSPA+ Samsung phone will be called the “Galaxy S 4G”.

We told you a little about the phone earlier today, which was identified then only as a “4G-capable Galaxy S”, making us assume it would continue with the Vibrant line as the Vibrant 4G or somesuch. After all, that’s how we’d been referring to the phone this far, and have even seen what appears to be an official T-Mobile screen using the Vibrant 4G language.

Today’s press release is unwavering in its references to the phone as the Galaxy S 4G, with no hint of any Vibrant to be found. Could this be a result of the accusations that have been levied upon T-Mobile and Samsung in reference to the original Vibrant’s Froyo delay?

Besides the new HSPA+ capability, letting downloads reach a theoretical peak of 21 Mbps, it doesn’t appear anything else about the Galaxy S is being changed. For the full-on Galaxy S 2, with a dual-core chip and better display, you’ll have to wait until next month, at least.
