The Samsung Galaxy keeps growing… and growing… and growing.. and growing…
With little, if any, fanfare, Samsung launched three new smartphones yesterday. They are the Samsung Galaxy Star, Galaxy Win, and Galaxy Pocket Neo. All of them have the same aesthetics as the Samsung Galaxy S3, which apparently is looking like the blueprint for succeeding devices with the plastic, thin, and curved chassis. All three devices run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, have expandable storage up to 32GB via MicroSD, and are dual SIM, dual standby. There’s no word yet on their official price and availability.
The Galaxy Star and Pocket Neo are entry-level devices. The Galaxy Star sports a rather small 3-inch display and it runs on a 1GHz single-core processor and 4GB internal storage. It has a rear-facing 2-megapixel snapper as well. The Galaxy Pocket Neo has almost the same specs except that it uses a 850MHz single-core processor (Wow Android Jelly Bean works on that spec?).
The Samsung Galaxy Win is the mid-range offering. It has a very decent 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, and a 5-megapixel shooter. It also has a 4.7-inch screen making it the biggest among the three new devices.
Any of the three catch your fancy? Personally I think if the entry-level models were to succeed locally they have to be priced really low otherwise the local brands will just eat them alive. The Galaxy Win is promising but it will have to be reasonably priced as well.
