Samsung is ramping up its Galaxy lineup with a new phone that draws inspiration from the Samsung Galaxy S3. Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Premier, Samsung finally announced the smartphone after it leaked out recently - here are the details on the handset.
For starters, the Galaxy Premier could easily be mistaken for the Galaxy S3 smartphone at a first glance. The Galaxy Premier shares the same design elements as the Galaxy S3, but keep in mind that this handset is weaker, and is more of a mid-level entry.
The Samsung Galaxy Premier comes with a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display with a 1280X720 resolution. It also comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM. It also features an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, and will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Consumers should be able to choose between 8GB and 16GB models, and the Galaxy Premier will come with a microSD slot capable of up to 32GB of extra storage. The Galaxy Premier will also have the expected goodies of NFC, BlueTooth 4.0, and LTE support.
The Galaxy Premier is slated for a December launch in the Ukraine, according to Slashgear, and should expand to other Asian and European markets soon after. The handset should cost around 400 euros for an unlocked, SIM-free version.
Some people may be getting annoyed at Samsung's decision to release a million Galaxy devices, but the Galaxy Premier does offer a slightly smaller, cheaper alternative to the popular Galaxy S3. It's too bad that the phone doesn't look like it will be coming to the United States anytime soon, but stay tuned for updates to see if any major U.S. carriers decide to invest in the Galaxy Premier.
