This morning, Samsung announced four new low-end Galaxy devices. These are the Galaxy Core II, Galaxy Ace 4, Galaxy Young 2 and the Galaxy Star 2. Samsung has probably the most diverse portfolio of products of any manufacturer. It’s to the point now where you can pick a size, pick a processor, and pick a version of Android and they’ll have something for you. Pretty crazy, but as long as they are supporting all of these devices, I don’t see a big deal in them announcing new devices so often.
The Galaxy Core II features a 4.5-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of internal space with a microSD card slot, Dual-SIM, 5MP camera and a 2000mAh battery inside.
The Galaxy Ace 4 will be available in both 3G and LTE variants. The 3G model sports a dual-core 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB RAM and a 1,50 mAh battery, while the 4G variant features a 1.2 GHz CPU, 1 GB RAM and an 1,800 mAh battery. The rest of the hardware is the same as the Galaxy Core II, which includes a 4-inch WVGA screen, 4 GB internal memory along with a microSD slot, 5 MP camera and a VGA front-facing camera.
Finally we have the Galaxy Young 2 and the Galaxy Star 2. Both of which feature a 3.5-inch display (probably a WVGA or lower resolution), single-core 1GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB storage, microSD card slot, 3 MP camera (2 MP on the Galaxy Star 2) and a 1,300 mAh battery.
So those are Samsung’s four new entry-level smartphones. So far there’s no pricing or release date, but I wouldn’t be surprised to never see them launch here in the US. If we’re lucky, we may get one of them on a prepaid carrier like Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, or T-Mobile’s prepaid. Otherwise, these are likely for emerging markets. Especially the Galaxy Core II with it’s Dual-SIM, which is popular over in Asia.
