Samsung has unveiled a new Android smartphone that promises to make “4G LTE’s dazzlingly fast network accessible to everyone.” The handset is called Samsung Galaxy Express – and is very similar to the Galaxy Express released at the end of 2012 by AT&T in the US.
Unlike AT&T’s Express, though, the new one is made for Europe and Asia, and will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from day one. Another difference is that the new Galaxy Express has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, instead of a dual-core 1.5GHz one. The rest of its features have not been changed, including: a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus WVGA display, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth v 4.0, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 32GB).
The Express weighs 139 grams, measures 132.2 x 69.1 x 9.3 mm, and includes a 2,000 mAh battery.
Samsung didn’t say how much the Galaxy Express would cost in Europe and Asia. The company also did not unveil the new handset’s launch date. But we do know the smartphone will be available in white.
AT&T is currently selling its Express for $99.99 on contract, or $449.99 (€335) off contract, offering only a black version of it.
