Korean mobile and consumer electronics brand Samsung had announced the cheaper Samsung Galaxy Pocket 2.8 inch display based Android smartphone last year to cater to users who do not have much money to spare but still aspire for an Android device. And again, Samsung is back with yet another Galaxy Pocket smartphone, only better this time in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus. The smaller sized Android smartphone aids easy carrying while not sacrificing on functionality.
The device, as its name suggests, has a minimalistic size that is very easy on the pocket. As Sammobile reports, it features a 2.8 inch display with a resolution of 230 x 320 pixels. The operating system on the device is Google's Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, which offers maximum compatibility with applications, and functionality for users. The 850 MHz single core processor from Broadcom makes sure that the device never runs out of breath even while multi tasking. Coupled with 512 MB of memory the device is geared for some decent performance as well.
Galaxy Pocket Plus offers 4 GB of user memory, which can be expanded with an SD memory card up to an additional 32 GB for applications, MP3 files and photos as well. There's an in-built FM radio, which can be used to tune into your favorite radio station. The phone comes with high speed WiFi and HSDPA 3.6 connectivity for faster data downloads and jitter free multimedia on the go.
In every aspect the device now gets an edge over the earlier Galaxy Pocket, so be it the processor, operating system or even storage and RAM, everything has been beefed up for superior performance.
The Galaxy Pocket features Samsung's Touch Wiz interface but a toned down version of course, so the hardware is able to accommodate it easily. The device is scheduled for launch later this year where it will be made available to customers globally. Following its launch the device is expected to hit the global market and if it does so it will be priced similar to the Samsung Galaxy Pocket, which is currently selling at around Rs 6,000 in the retail market.
