Two new Samsung smartphones have entered into the market going by the names of Galaxy Fame and Galaxy Win in India, each catering to different segments carrying competitive hardware as well as price tags. Both devices operate on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform and offer dual SIM support, albeit the former is aimed towards the mid-range segment and the latter falls in the entry level category.
The Samsung Galaxy Win is of main concern here. The handset carries a 4.7-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen which proffers WVGA 480 x 800p resolution. The Android UI is layered with the company’s own TouchWiz interface that brings along various enhancements and applications such as Easy Mode which provides an intuitive homescreen for quick access to main features, as well as Smart Alert that delivers notification on missed calls, messages, and more. Motion UX, ChatON and Kies are also onboard.
The Samsung Galaxy Win is 9.7mm thin and tips the scales at 143.9 grams. Falling in the mid-range segment, it houses a 1.2GHz Cortex A5 processor with quad cores and the Adreno 203 GPU from Qualcomm. Assisting it is an entire gigabyte of RAM. The device places itself as a decent alternative to the mighty S3 and even the larger Grand where budget is concerned.
Catering to memory needs is 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB. Users will be able to record videos in 720p HD through the rear-facing 5MP snapper and also commence live face-to-face conversations via the 0.3MP front lens. The main camera tags along modes such as Continuous Shot and Best Photo as well as various effects for customizing photos. A 2000mAh Li-ion battery gets things up and running.
The Samsung Galaxy Win is currently priced at Rs. 17,900 through Infibeam and Snapdeal. Do note – Neither of the 2 handsets has been officially announced by the company.
