Packed with a dual-core 1.7GHz dual-core CPU and 4.5″ qHD TFT screen, the 4G-powered Samsung Galaxy Express 2 is heading to Vodafone. The network will be offering the ceramic white version here in the UK exclusively, with other retailers getting it later. There’s also a blue version which will be available exclusively to the network.
It’s powered by Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and has a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with flash and a further VGA front-facing shooter. Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB ROM, microSD and GPS is all on board, and there’s the usual splash of Samsung apps and features including Smart Stay, Group Play, Motion UX, S Travel, StoryAlbum and S Translator.
It measures in at 132.43 x 65.75 x 9.8 and has a 2100mAh battery. No pricing just yet, but expect it to be fairly competitive considering this mid-range spec. The device will be available from tomorrow in Voda stores and online.
