Today Samsung introduced the latest addition to its lineup of Android smartphones. Dubbed Samsung Galaxy Pocket, the new handset packs entry levels specs and aims to become one of the most affordable smartphones out there.
The Samsung Galaxy Pocket is built around a 2.8" QVGA LCD and runs on an 832 MHz CPU. Its platform of choice is Android 2.3 Gingerbread and if we were you, we wouldn't count on an Ice Cream Sandwich update coming up for this one.
The Galaxy Pocket onboard memory is 3GB and you can expand it by up to 32GB thanks to the microSD card slot. Network connectivity department offers dual-band 3.6 Mbps HSDPA and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, while local data transfers can be carried over Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth and USB.
Cameraphone enthusiasts will probably find little to like about the Samsung Galaxy Pocket as the smartphone only offers a 2 megapixel fixed focus camera at the back. Things look a bit better in the audio department with the 3.5mm audio jack and the Stereo FM radio with RDS.
The Galaxy Pocket will be available in the UK later this year at an affordable price, but the press release doesn't get any more specific than that.
