    The Samsung Galaxy S Advanced is almost similar to the Samsung Galaxy R in terms of specifications, as far as it is known. The 1 GHz dual core NOVATHOR U8500 processor is the power factor in the hardware. Although the RAM and ROM specs aren’t known, the Galaxy S Advanced is said to feature 6 GB internal memory.

    The 3.5mm jack and the microUSB 2.0 port are visible in the posted images of the handset. It has also been confirmed that the Galaxy S Advanced will have a 5 Megapixel camera with a video recording capability of 720p HD, probably at 30 fps. Secondary camera is of course there, but no details have been announced yet. The most noted in the specifications is the latest version Operating system. The Galaxy S Advanced runs in Android v2.3.6 Gingerbread OS.

    The 4 inch Super AMOLED WVGA capacitive multi touchscreen adds to the style of the handset which would be launched hopefully at the MWC this year or earlier. The expected price of Samsung Galaxy S Advanced in India is approximately more than Rs 25,000/- but we’d better wait for the official announcement.
