Features-wise, the Android phone boasts a 6-axis sensor combining the accelerometer and gyroscope. Its TouchWiz 3.0 UI is also supported with quite a bunch of touch screen gestures including – multi-touch pinch, vertical and horizontal swiping, and long tap and zoom for fun gaming experience along with Web-browsing and photo viewing.

There has been no further info about the Captivate’s release date as well as the price. But basing on “the coming months” statement, we’re looking forward to it to be available by this summer.
