Of late South Korean giant Samsung has been severely criticized for its latest range of affordable smartphones. This has led to the South Korean smartphone maker's loss in market share in many emerging nations. Now, in a surprise move, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Young 2, alongside the Galaxy Ace 4, Star 2, and Core 2.
The Galaxy Young 2 is an "ideal smartphone for the user who focus on essential features and usability", claims Samsung. The budget phone is seen as a rival device to the Motorola Moto E. The Galaxy Young 2's hardware is rather below average, but it shouldn't cost much when it will get launched in India.
Spec-wise, the Galaxy Young 2 has a 3.5-inch HGVA display with a resolution of 320 x 480-pixels. Under the hood is a 1.0 GHz single core processor, coupled with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage, which can be later expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. The device runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat with Samsung's native UI layer slapped on top.
On the imaging front, there's a 3-megapixel rear-facing fixed focus camera without an LED Flash. The makers have added a 1,300mAh battery fitted inside. The handset measures 11.8mm in terms of thickness and weighs in at 108grams.
Connectivity options on the device are as follows: 3G, WiFi, FM Radio, Bluetooth 4.0, ChatOn, TouchWiz Essence, Dual SIM, HD Voice, Easy Text, Kies, amongst others.
Samsung's new low-end handset, the Galaxy Young 2, will come bundled with at least eight latest Gameloft games. The phone is expected to be made available in white and Iris Charcoal colors.
Unfortunately, there is no word on when and where Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy Young 2. However, GizBot expects the new budget phone will get launched in India shortly.
