The phone comes with Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system and runs on 832 MHz processor. The 2.6 inch with WVGA">QVGA resolution of 320 x 240 pixels is a capacitive touch screen, which is large for a touch and type device.
The phone comes with Samsung TouchWiz user interface on top of the Android 2.3. It has a 3 megapixels camera which supports video recording at 24 fps (frames per second) which is also quite decent for a phone at this price. Additionally, this phone carries a 0.3 megapixel camera on its front.
Other features of the phone include 32 GB expandable memory option, a 1350 mAh Li-Ion battery which works well thanks to the small screen in comparison to full touch phones and promises a talk time of up to 19 hours and 7 hours on 2G and 3G networks respectively.
