From Giant to Tiny: Samsung Has One More Android to Discuss Today


Today’s shaping up to be a surprisingly busy day for Samsung. We already saw the company’s new Galaxy Mega phones go from rumors to reality, with Samsung announcing the 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch behemoths, and now we’re getting new details on the launch of another Samsung Android. This one’s very much on the opposite end of the spectrum, with a lilliputian display measuring-in at just three inches.

The Galaxy Pocket Neo has a three-inch QVGA display, an 850MHz SoC, and a two-megapixel main camera. We know; that all sounds a bit grim, but it’s not entirely bad news. The Pocket Neo still has relatively modern software, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and though the phone only has 4GB of internal storage, there’s microSD support to give you quite a bit more space for your files.

Overall, the disappointing specs may turn us off (why, oh why, can’t there be a pint-sized phone with higher-end hardware?) but we get the appeal of a tiny, pocket-friendly smartphone like this.

So far, we’ve only heard of Samsung’s plans for bringing the Pocket Neo to the UK, where it should hit stores sometime towards the middle of next month. While Samsung announced the phone on its global site a little earlier this month, details on all the other markets it may hit have yet to arrive.
