Samsung announce the Galaxy Express

It feels like not a day goes by when Samsung isn’t coming up with something to add to their Galaxy line of smartphones. They are pretty cool though.

The latest addition is this new Galaxy Express, an international version of the AT&T handset already available in the states. Although not seemingly sporting the same 1.5GHz processor as this appears to have a 1.2GHz processor listed in it’s specification. Make of that what you will.

Technically this sits between the Galaxy SIII Mini and the larger SIII. I’m not sure who asked for that gap to be filled but Samsung are really enjoying making phones right now. There are no details of it’s availability quite yet for the UK but if you keep you ear tuned to EE’s signals I am sure they will be talking it up in the near future.
