KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung has announced that its Galaxy S Advance handset will arrive in the UK on 30 April.
Announced in January, the Samsung S Advance joins the slew of Galaxy phones already available, offering a cheap alternative to the Galaxy S II. As to specifications, there's a 1GHz dual-core processor and a 4in Super AMOLED screen. Unfortunately it ships running Android 2.3 Gingerbread rather than the newer Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and Samsung has yet to say whether the phone will see future Android updates.
Other features of the "cheap" Galaxy handset include a 5MP camera, a 1.3MP video call camera, 768MB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB internal storage and HSDPA internet speeds.
The company has announced that the Galaxy S Advance will be avilable through Phones 4u and Vodafone from next Monday, although it did not reveal pricing.
With the Samsung Galaxy S II set to launch in the UK next week, we can't see too many people getting very excited about this one. µ
