Samsung Announces Low-End, Entry-Level Galaxy Pocket
The South Korean company waited for MWC to be over in order to announce the Samsung Galaxy Pocket (and given the specs of it we can understand why). We’re looking at “the latest addition to its Android powered Galaxy portfolio”, though in a low-end budget shape.
The Galaxy Pocket looks like any other Samsung and packs a single-core processor clocking at 832MHz, a 2.8-inch QVGA display of 240 x 320 (in case you forgot from the good old days), two-megapixel fixed focus main camera, no flash, no webcam, 3GB storage (expandable via microSD), and with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on-board (with its own Samsung TouchWiz UX on top of it). There’s also Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n and the usual suspects.
The Galaxy Pocket will be available in the UK later this year but exact details regarding additional regions, availability date and pricing are yet unknown. Expect it to be dirt-cheap though given it’s an entry-level device with low specs.
