Samsung on Monday announced four new smartphones, each of them an advancement in an existing family of devices, including the Galaxy Core II, the Galaxy Ace 4, the Galaxy Young 2 and the Galaxy Star 2. All four phones run Android 4.4 Kitkat and are expected to carry affordable price points.
The Galaxy Core 2 is equipped with a 4.5-inch WVGA display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera, a VGA front-facing camera, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage and a 2,000mAh battery. It also supports dual-SIM cards, which suggests it will launch in emerging smartphone markets where that’s more popular.
The Galaxy Ace 4 will launch in both 3G and LTE radio versions and is equipped with a 4-inch WVGA display, a 5-megapixel camera, and a VGA front-facing camera. The 3G model has 512MB of RAM, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of expandable storage and a 1,500mAh battery. The LTE version has 1GB of RAM, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of expandable storage and a larger 1,800mAh battery.
The Galaxy Young 2 is another 3G-only device and sports a 1GHz single core processor, a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a 3-megapixel front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage, a 1,300mAh battery and dual-SIM card support.
Finally, the Galaxy Star 2 is equipped with a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a single core A7 processor clocked at 1GHz, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage, dual-SIM support, a 1,300mAh battery and more.
Samsung did not announce pricing, release dates or launch markets for its new devices, though most are likely headed to emerging markets. It’s possible we’ll see the Galaxy Ace 4 launch with a pre-paid brand in the U.S., though that’s only speculation based on its support for LTE networks.
