Samsung has introduced yet another Galaxy S variation handset, named as Galaxy S Advance. This new Samsung Galaxy S Advance smartphone has an impressive specification and is a superior version of the earlier Galaxy S Plus.
Samsung will launch this handset first in Russia next month and then eventually make it available in Europe, Africa, Middle East, South East Asia and South West Asia, Latin America and China.
The new Galaxy S Advance comes with a 4-inch Super Amoled touchscreen display supporting 480×800 pixel resolution. Under the slightly better designed shell, the smartphone packs a dual 1 GHz mobile processor coupled with 768 MB RAM. This hardware is worthy enough to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread smoothly on it. Samsung didn’t mention about releasing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for this handset but consumers can expect the update to show up by the end of the year at least.
Samsung has added its own proprietary Samsung Apps, the Music Hub, Game Hub, Polaris Office and ChatOn Instant messaging service on this handset along with TouchWiz user interface. Other features of this handset include 3G network support, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Geomagnetic sensor and GPS. By default it supports variety of video formats including DivX codecs. The 5 megapixel camera at the back is capable of recording 720p HD video at 30 frames per second.
In a way, the Galaxy S Advance is mash-up of the Galaxy S Plus and Galaxy R handsets already available in few select markets. To carry off the name, the Galaxy S Advance comes with a dual-core 1 GHz mobile processor but falls behind in the terms of memory (RAM) and battery (1500 mAh). Samsung has not announced the price of the Galaxy S Advance.
