In a keynote at CTIA, Samsung executives also said they are partnering with top media companies to bring full-length movies, television shows and electronic books to Samsung smartphones by direct download.

(Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, the world's second-biggest mobile phone maker, on Tuesday unveiled a new smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S, which is based on Google Inc's Android software.

The head of the company's mobile phone business JK Shin told the audience in his keynote speech at the CTIA annual wireless trade show that the device would be available in the US later this year.

He said the Galaxy S would include an advanced screen technology called Super AMOLED that promises a display that is 20 percent brighter than existing phones and ideal for showing video on cellphones.

Shin also said Samsung is partnering with top media companies to bring full-length movies, television shows and electronic books to Samsung smartphones by direct download. Samsung said it would announce partners at a later date.
