Samsung has just announced two new mid-range smartphones – the Galaxy Young and the Galaxy Fame, said to be designed for the youth market and all those who are interested in gaming and media.
The Samsung Galaxy Young is a usual budget device similar to the Galaxy Ace series. It comes with a 3.27-inch HVGA (480×320) TFT touchscreen, 1GHz processor, 768MB RAM, and 4GB of internal storage. There’s a microSD card slot, too, in case 4 gigs aren’t enough for you. The rear camera has a 3MP sensor (there’s no front shooter), and the battery has a capacity of 1,300 mAh. As for software, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean comes on board. There will also be two versions of this phone, with dual SIM and simgle SIM capabilities, depending on the market.
The Samsung Galaxy Fame has much in common with the Galaxy Young: its touchscreen is a bit bigger at 3.5 inches, but the resolution is the same. There’s a 1GHz processor on board, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the same amount of internal memory (4GB, with a microSD card slot), and only 512MB RAM. The battery is also the same 1,300 mAh one. The camera, however, is a bit better – it has a 5MP sensor, just like the one on the Samsung Galaxy Ace. Besides, the Galaxy Fame offers NFC support that is absent on the Galaxy Young.
Nothing is known about the availability of these smartphones or their prices. But we can guess that since they are similar to those Galaxy Ace phones, they will most likely cost something like $300-350 (SIM-free).
