Over the past few months, Samsung has shown no interest in producing low-end handset made for emerging nations. There is hardly any affordable Samsung-made Android phone available onto market that can compete against the Motorola Moto E under Rs. 7,000 price bracket.
Looks like Samsung has either forgotten the low-end of the handset market or there is a new Android phone already being planned for India. Well, it appears that the cat is out of the bag. Samsung Galaxy Ace NXT, which is the company's latest entry-level handset, is now available from a leading retailer in Mumbai.
The new budget device is apparently already in stock via a reputed Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom. The Galaxy Ace NXT is priced at Rs. 7,399, and if promoted well it come become the next best hot seller after the Moto E.
Talking about the Galaxy Ace NXT (SM-G313H) specification, the device has a 4-inch WVGA screen. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz single-core Spreadtrum SC7715 processor with Mali-400 GPU and run on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).
The handset offers 4GB of on-board storage with an option to expand the internal memory via a microSD card slot. The makers have added a 1500mAh battery fitted inside. In the imaging department, there is a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera with a single LED Flash.
The dual-SIM phone also supports high speed 3G connectivity. The Samsung Galaxy Ace NXT will be offered in Black and White color options.
Samsung has recently launched two more low-end smartphones including the Galaxy Young 2, Galaxy Star 2 which are yet to hit the Indian stores. There's no word when these phones will grace the Indian shores.
