Samsung Galaxy Express 2 with LTE arrives in the UK tomorrow, exclusively at Vodafone
Back in January Samsung announced the Galaxy Express for Europe and Asia, which was similar to the handset of the same name that AT&T has been selling in the US since late last year. Now it seems that the Korean company decided it was time for an upgrade, so it unveiled the Galaxy Express 2.
It’s headed to the UK first, where it will be available tomorrow as a Vodafone exclusive. At some point in the future, it will be offered by additional retailers, who weren’t named in the official press release though.
The Samsung Galaxy Express 2 still features LTE support. Alongside that, it comes with a 4.5-inch 540×960 touchscreen, a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, a VGA front camera, 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of built-in storage space, microSD card support, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, and a 2,100 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Compared to its predecessor, we see a bump in screen resolution, a faster processor, more RAM, and a bigger battery. All welcome improvements, undoubtedly. The original Galaxy Express was all about bringing LTE to the masses, and the follow up should have the same mantra. Look for it in Vodafone stores tomorrow, in white and blue (the latter being a Vodafone exclusive color).
