Samsung just pulled the wraps off two entry-level devices called the Galaxy Young and the Galaxy Fame. They both resemble the Galaxy S III, but are much smaller. The Galaxy Young (above left) will feature a 3.27-inch (480 x 320) display and a 3MP camera while the Galaxy Fame (above right) will sport a 3.5-inch (480 x 320) display and a 5MP camera. The Fame will also get NFC. The rest of the specs are identical for both phones: 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, microSD slot, 1300mAh battery, and Android 4.2.1.
The Galaxy Young will be offered in white, deep blue, wine red, and metallic silver and the Galaxy Fame will be offered in pearl white and metallic blue. Last but not least, both phones will be offered in either dual or single SIM versions. No word on pricing, but we hear that they will become available in March.
Looks like Sammy is preparing to make a major splash in the coming months by introducing a wide range of devices. Thanks to our a friends at TechnoBuffalo, Samsung’s roadmap for the 1st half of 2013 is now in plain view for the world to see. The biggest item on the agenda is that Galaxy Note 8 tablet that we have been hearing more about lately. The device will feature a quad-core processor, Android 4.2, an 8-inch 1,280 x 800 display and of course all the Galaxy Note goodies like S Note, S Memo and S Planner. Reports are indicating the tablet will arrive by March 2013 and should be available in both WiFi and carrier-branded versions.
Another device that’s noteworthy on the water and dust-proof Galaxy Cover X 2 smartphone. This rugged device will feature a 4-inch WVGA display, a dual-core 1GHz processor, Android 4.1, and a 5-megapixel camera. The smartphone features and profile seem to match up with what we expect from AT&T’s Rugby Smart line of smartphones, so it may be possible that we will see this device on Ma Bell’s network in February (when it is expected to be released). The device may not be the most interesting device in the world, but it certainly is appealing for those who want a device that can withstand most harsh conditions.
There are some other devices that are also worth mentioning, so head on past the break to see the additional items and give yourselves a better idea of what’s to come from Sammy.
