Samsung announce two low cost phones

 


Samsung has announced two low cost Android powered smart phones. These being the 3.5 inch screen Galaxy Frame and the 3.3 inch Galaxy Young, both of the handsets you will agree have a strong resemblance to the Galaxy S3 and the Note 2.

We previously heard about the Galaxy Young through a leaked roadmap and were expecting it might appear at Mobile World Congress, but Samsung has lifted the lid early.

Specs for the Young are…

  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • TouchWiz UI
  • 1GHz processor
  • 768MB of RAM
  • Display – 3.3″ 480×320 pixel resolution
  • Onboard storage is 4GB
  • MicroSD up to 64GB
  • 1,300mAh battery
  • 3-megapixel primary camera but it doesn’t have an LED flash and can only record VGA video.

Available in a number of colours,white, red, blue and silver but Samsung hasn’t yet announced pricing or availability. With that kind of spec though you can expect this to be a very affordable device and even the name would suggest it is aimed at a lower price bracket.

Specs for the Frame..

  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • TouchWiz UI
  • 1GHz processor
  • 512MB of RAM
  • Display – 3.5″ 480×320 pixel resolution
  • Onboard storage is 4GB
  • MicroSD up to 64GB
  • 1,300mAh battery
  • 5-megapixel primary camera and VGA front facing camera
  • NFC (optional)

Samsung has not released pricing or availability, Samsung really seem to be trying to cover EVERY possible screen imaginable. Surely they will run out different sizes soon.
