Samsung’s humongous 7-inch smartphone is finally official and it’s a massive device that will surely appeal to phablet enthusiasts.
The Galaxy W comes equipped with a 7-inch HD display, a quad-core 1.2GHZ processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with microSD support up to 64GB, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, a 3200mAh battery, and support for South Korea’s LTE-Advanced network. It’s available in black, white or red and runs Android 4.3 with Samsung’s own customized UI on top, similar to what the company offers for its Galaxy Note phablet series.
For the time being, Samsung’s 7-inch phablet will be sold exclusively by South Korean carrier SK Telecom. There’s still no set release date for the device, though the company says it will retail for 499,400 won (roughly $490) once it hits the market.
