Samsung Galaxy series smartphones – One of the coolest smartphones series, which outsold many a few tough competitors, is apparently Samsung’s trump card. So it is quite obvious that Samsung will work on making new and powerful additions to the Galaxy line-up.
So anticipations have risen over the news that Samsung is working on Galaxy SIII, which is nicknamed the “iPhone Killer”. But you might not have noticed another new member of the Samsung Galaxy family which was launched in Philippines, this is Galaxy S Advanced.
Actually, the new Samsung smartphone named Samsung Galaxy GT-I9070 was first believed to be released in China first. Now, reports claim that the handset will be released in a few other markets of other countries as well, but with a new name which has already been made public.
Samsung GT-I9070 is now renamed as the Samsung Galaxy S Advanced. Samsung Galaxy S Advanced is packed with powerful specifications, as expected. A few photos of the handset and a video footage are now out and are already creating a lot of hype.
