KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung announced an international version of its AT&T Galaxy Express smartphone today.
The Samsung Galaxy Express is essentially an upgraded Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, featuring an expanded 4.5in WVGA Super AMOLED display and support for 4G LTE speeds. However, it's still unclear whether the phone will reach EE's 4G network here in the UK, as Samsung is keeping quiet about a possible release here in Blighty.
Samsung said, "The Galaxy Express is a value-driven 4G LTE smartphone, designed for the young social explorer.
"Faster multimedia streaming and downloads mean less waiting time and more enjoyment. Internet browsing is super-fast, and video and text chat sessions flawlessly stable and reliable via the 4G LTE network."
This budget phone isn't all about 4G though. It also features a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system and Samsung's Touchwiz user interface.
There's also a 5MP rear-facing camera capable of shooting HD 1080p video, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, 8GB of built-in storage expandable to 32GB, NFC and a 2,000mAh battery.
Samsung has told The INQUIRER that the Samsung Galaxy Express will be coming to the UK in the first half of 2013. It still has no details on the handset's UK pricing and release date, though. µ
