Samsung seems to be focusing more on the mid- and entry-level segments as we’re seeing a lot of new devices popping up with the Galaxy V being the latest. The smartphone has been spotted in Vietnam and an online retailer has divulged all the details about it.
Just so you know, Samsung hasn’t officially launched the Galaxy V as yet and for all we know, it could be a country-specific variant or one of the many entry-level handsets we’ve seen over the past couple of months. GSM Arena has spotted the device on mainguyen.vn where it’s retailing for around $108.
The handset continues the tradition of using the same generic design that’s fading in popularity. It runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat which is great and is probably accompanied by the TouchWiz essentials UI that’s optimized for low-performance phones. Being an entry-level handset, it packs a 4-inch FWVGA display and a 3MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, but no front snapper.
Additionally, the device comes with basic specs such as 512MB of RAM and just 4GB on inbuilt storage. Of course, a microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB has been included. Doing the heavy lifting is a 1.2GHz processor of unknown make and it’s probably a single core one. Apart from these features, the handset also comes with dual SIM support with HSPA+ 21Mbps support.
Here’s a roundup of the specs:
– Android 4.4.2 KitKat
– 4-inch FWVGA display
– 1.2GHz processor
– 512MB RAM, 4GB storage
– Dual SIM support
– Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS
– 3MP rear camera
– 1500mAh battery
– 21.2mm x 62.7mm x 10.65mm dimensions
It isn’t clear whether the Samsung Galaxy V is a country-specific release, but we’d sure like to see it launch globally with that $108 price tag.
