This is a totally new phone that's quite different from the Spica. I'll post some live photos and more info tomorrow. It's a very high end phone but there's no announced US carrier.

I read (if I understood correctly) that the Galaxy S' processor was 3 times faster than the N1's, is that true?

The CPUs are both 1GHz and offer similar performance. Rather it's the PowerVR GPU graphics processor that's potentially 3x faster than the N1 and also faster than the iPhone 3GS GPU.
