Samsung has released a mid range phone at MWC today. This phone is specific to the European markets for the time being, but is expected to hit the US and Asian markets by mid of 2nd quarter.
This is Samsung’s latest offering of a dual core phone and it looks like Samsung is taking this entity pretty seriously. The phone is powered with is a dual core 800MHz processor and has android 2.3.6 as its OS. However as expected Samsung is going to provide an ICS update for this phone too.
It is customized with the Samsung’s touchwiz UI. It may provide the users a bit of a surprise as this device generates a little bit of delay while performing transitions from screen to screen. It will take some time getting used to for all those users who actually have used a higher clocked processor.
Build quality is exactly as one would expect from Samsung, neither too great nor very dissatisfying. Its body is completely built from plastic and to our surprise it did not weigh very light. It does have a hefty feel to it which thankfully removes all the cheap feeling associated with some of the other Samsung products. No prices have been yet announced by Samsung for this new device.
