There are enough handsets in Samsung’s Galaxy line-up to
suit all needs, from the high-end Samsung Galaxy S II to the budget friendly
Galaxy W i8150 and the company has now announced the Galaxy S Advance which
will sit somewhere in the middle of the range.
The Galaxy S Advance will feature a curved 4in Super AMOLED
screen with a resolution of 480 x 800. it will come with 16GB of on-board
storage and 768MB of RAM. It will be
powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor.
The phone will feature a 5 megapixel camera on the rear
capable of capturing 720p video and will be paired with a 1.3 megapixel
front-facing camera. The phone will ship with Android 2.3.6 skinned with
Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface.
The Samsung Galaxy S Advance will launch in Russia next month, followed by Europe, Africa,
the Middle East, Asia, Latin America and China
but, according to the press release from Samsung, not the US. No pricing
has been announced yet but we’ll bring you details as soon as we find out.
We expect to see the Galaxy S Advance at Mobile World
Congress next month where we may or may not get to see the Samsung Galaxy S III,
the much-anticipated update to one of Samsung’s best-selling smartphones.
For now let us know what you think of the new handset from Samsung.
