The Samsung Galaxy Z was revealed by a Swedish cellular provider as a lower-end Galaxy S II with its 4.2-inch screen and a slower but still dual-core processor. It appears that the Galaxy Z will be landing in The U.K. this month as the Galaxy R.
The main difference between the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy R is the screen, which on the Galaxy R is .1 inches smaller (4.2 version 4.3 on the Galaxy S II) and is allegedly Super LCD instead of Super AMOLED Plus. Additionally, the powerful dual-core Exynos CPU on the SGS2 has been reportedly replaced by an nVidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. The camera is also smaller: five-megapixels with 720p HD video recording capability. On-board you will also find WiFi, GPS, FM Radio, 8GB internal memory and microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB.
As far as pricing is concerned there are no details as of yet but, given the lower than SGS2 specs, expect it to be cheaper than Samsung’s flagship phone.
