Samsung Galaxy Young and Galaxy Frame Officially Announced
When it comes to flagship smartphones, the big battle is surely between the Samsung Galaxy S series and Apple’s iPhone, there is no question about it. However, there is a big difference between the two major companies. While Apple is sticking with only creating high-end smartphones (the iPhone), Samsung is doing everything to capture all the segments of the market, thus the Japanese giant is also developing cheaper handsets. It’s the same case with its latest two smartphones, the Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame, which are meant especially for the young customers who are supposed to have less money than the grownups.
As expected, the Galaxy Young and the Galaxy Fame don’t sport impressive specs, but rather fair ones that fit the entry-level devices. Both smartphones will come with 1Ghz CPUs and 4GB of internal memory, which can be expanded with a microSd card slot. As for the battery, both phones will have a 1,300mAh one. Another thing that they have in common will be the operating system, both of them will be running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The Galaxy Young sports a 3MP rear-facing camera as opposed to the one of the Galaxy Fame, which is a 5MP one. Nevertheless, Young comes with 768MB of RAM and a 3.27-inch HVGA TFT display, while the Galaxy Fame has a slight smaller screen of 3.5 inches HVGA TFT and only 512MB of RAM.
Another difference is the connectivity, the Galaxy Fame featuring Bluetooth 4.0 as well as optional NFC support as and when required. The colors differ as well, the Galaxy Fame will be available in pearl white and metallic blue shades , while the Galaxy Young will come in white, deep blue, wine red and metallic silver versions.
It is worth mentioned that Samsung will offer dual-SIM versions for both of these devices, fact that will get them a lot of popularity inside the emerging markets. Sadly, Samsung has not mentioned the exact prices for the handsets nor when they will become available. However, if we take the specs into consideration, the Galaxy Fame and the Galaxy Young won’t cost very much.
