azri, 03 Mar 2012although the galaxy R ram is 1GB, about 200+mb ram is reserved for the android usage. meaning ... morei guess it wouldnt affect d battery life much since the chipset dat samsung is going to use is st ericssion novathur u8500 which is d first on any samsung smartphone! the maufacturers site specifies it to be a "Highly efficient, low-power ARM dual Cortex™- A9 processor" "Advanced power saving architecture enabling class-leading audio and video playback times" i guess samsung would have kept in mind d battery part in mind while designing d phone and i would be happy if it can match with the battery life of galaxy r
[deleted post]Hey i guess it should be priced at about 22k or 23k INR !! just somewhere between samsung galaxy s plus and s2 !! but sometimes samsung gets very weird in its pricing and sometimes overprices itz products so dont be surprised if it is launched somwhere abt 25k in d market !! wait for a month or two and d prices will fall to 21 to 22 k i guess !!
Hansh, 18 Feb 2012is this phone gonna get ice cream sandwich update? yap.....can be update upto icecream sandwich....
and it s based on ST-ERICSSON's NOVATHOR U8500 dual core with mali 400 graphics ...
by putting the 3.5 m.m. jack on the bottom side of phone , Samsung has unnecessarily put up a stop to a likely, intending buyer like me to give a rethink.
Why Samsung has ruined this phone ,with excellent specification , by this small mistake.

does this phone have native video calling like galaxy s1/ s2? (not thru skype or 3rd party applications)?
although the galaxy R ram is 1GB, about 200+mb ram is reserved for the android usage. meaning that the galaxy r ram is about the same as galaxy s advance. keep in mind that the battery capacity is only 1500mAh to support dual core processor. i doubt that the phone will even reach one-day under normal usage.
dd, 02 Mar 2012does this have an ICS update?i wonder when will this phone arrives in Malaysia? any clue anybody??
MEDO, 26 Feb 2012Is there a graphics card?
Yes, it's called Mali-400MP
BTW it's called GPU not graphics card :)
Thilanka, 29 Feb 2012this mobile battery back-up is so poor it hardly last 1.5days in normal use...Have you already used it to know its battery life ? LOL
