Samsung has unveiled two new entry-level smartphones namely the Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame. Both the devices are powered by Android Jelly Bean (v4.1) and resemble top-of-the-line devices like Galaxy S III and Note II in looks.
Both the handsets look almost similar, the noticeable difference is curvier top and bottom of the Galaxy Fame (above right) while the other one is the Galaxy Young (above left). Since these are low cost handsets, both come with HVGA (480x320p) screen resolution.
The Galaxy Young features a 1GHz processor, 768MB RAM, 3.27-inch TFT display, 4GB internal storage (with microSD support upto 64GB) and a 1,300mAh battery. Galaxy Young also comes with a 3MP rear camera without flash.
The Galaxy Fame sports the same 1 GHz processor 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage (with microSD support upto 64GB) and a 1,300mAh battery. But it comes with a slightly bigger 3.5-inch display and 5 megapixel auto-focus rear camera with LED flash along with a VGA camera at the front for video calling. Fame also comes with an option of NFC for easy file sharing.
The Galaxy Fame will come in pearl white and metallic blue, while the Young will be available in white, deep blue, wine red and metallic silver. Samsung says that both models will be available as single and dual-SIM variants. Thus both the phones combine powerful performance with an essential suite of features and services, all packed within a stylish design.
As of now, there is no word on the pricing or availability of any of the two smartphones, but considering Samsung’s focus on emerging markets, we are pretty sure that these devices would land on Indian shores as well and would be priced competitively. Seems this is just a precursor of what we can expect from Samsung at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona later this month.
