Samsung announced today the Galaxy Core II, Galaxy Young 2 and Galaxy Star 2, the successors to some of the best-selling affordable droids last year.
Samsung Galaxy Core II
Samsung Galaxy Core II is the most powerful device among the newly announced phones. It comes with a 4.5" WVGA display and runs on a quad-core 1.2GHz processor. The rest of the specs include 768MB of RAM, 4GB expandable storage, a 5MP rear camera with a LED flash, a VGA front snapper, and a 2,000mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy Core II offers fast 3G connectivity with 21Mbps downlink, dual-SIM, Wi-Fi N, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with GLONASS and FM radio. It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and will become available in White and Black flavors.
Samsung Galaxy Young 2
Samsung Galaxy Young 2 is a very little fella with a 3.5" HVGA display and it is powered by a 1.0GHz single-core processor. It comes with half a gig RAM, 4GB expandable memory, a 3MP fixed-focus rear camera, and a 1,300 mAh battery.
Galaxy Young 2 is running on KitKat too, and has the same connectivity package as the Core II - 3G, dual-SIM, Wi-Fi N, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and FM radio. It will come in white and iris charcoal colors.
Samsung Galaxy Star 2
The Galaxy Star 2 should be even cheaper than the Young 2. It is pretty much the same phone though skipping the 3G connectivity and downgrading the rear camera to 2MP. The rest is the same - a 3.5" HVGA display, a 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage with a microSD slot.
Just like the Young 2, the Star 2 offers dual-SIM, Wi-Fi N, GPS, Bluetooth and FM radio. The Android version in charge of operations is still 4.4 KitKat. You will be able to get the Galaxy Star 2 in white and iris charcoal paintjobs, too.
Samsung is yet to detail the pricing and availability any of the three smartphones.
If I don't get Kitkat on my S3 then this phone will be the last Samsung I ever buy. There are mobile producers like HTC, LG and Sony (to name just a few) with better product support and therefore more deserving of my next mobile phone purchase. S...
Or in some cases... worse specs than the original. Samsung.. this is terrible. They're taking us for fools.
Wow. The Young 2 is a downgrade on the original Young.
