Remember the Samsung Galaxy Z? It was basically a lite version of the Galaxy S II and it landed in the U.K. as the Galaxy R. Now Samsung is further tweaking the specs with the addition of the Galaxy M.
According to Samsung’s naming convention, the Galaxy M is a mid-tier device (“M” as in Magical, offering decent performance at affordable price). It sports a four-inch Super AMOLED screen (opposed to the Super LCD found on the Galaxy Z/R) but CPU-wise it is powered by a single-core processor clocking at 1GHz. The camera at its back is a three-megapixel shooter and the webcam has a VGA resolution. There’s also WiFi b/g/n, a TV tuner and a 1,650mAh battery to power it all. The platform is Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the phone will be available, for around $500 and currently only in South Korea, in platinum-silver, blue-black, and lavender-pink combos.
