Samsung has added three new entry-level mobile phones to its line up for India — Champ 3.5G, Chat 527 and Primo. Finally, the need of affordable 3G handsets is being addressed by Samsung with these new three mobile phones. One must remember that these are good quality feature phones. New Champ 3.5G is priced at Rs 5,590, Chat 527 is priced at Rs 5,930 while Primo costs Rs 6,590.

Samsung Primo is a typical candy bar handset that comes with 2.4 inch portrait display but features a 5 megapixel camera at back which is quite a surprise. It also has a front facing VGA camera for video calling.
This handset comes with Bluetooth 3.0, which supports faster data transfer speeds of up to 24 Mbits only if +HS has been added to it. Apart from that, this handset also supports WiFi and thus becomes an interesting handset for the price range.
