You have to pay eternal attention to developments that could become a 10X factor in your business - Andy Grove - Only the Paranoid Survive
KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung announced two Android smartphones today, the Galaxy Star and Galaxy Pocket Neo.
The handsets, both which come with dual-SIM slots, are aimed at a youthful audience, according to Samsung, or those who want an Android phone without an eye-watering price like the Galaxy S4.
The firm boasted, "Perfect for the younger generation of mobile users, the Galaxy Star and Galaxy Pocket Neo are designed with a stylish, compact form factor and packed with the latest Android user experience, intuitive navigation and multimedia and content sharing possibilities."
The Samsung Galaxy Star is the higher specified of the two handsets, although its features are unlikely to get many excited. Despite running Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system, the phone features a lowly 3in QVGA display and a 1GHz single-core processor. There's also a 2MP rear camera, 4GB of internal storage expandable to 32GB and a 1,200mAh battery.
Samsung might have unveiled the Galaxy Pocket Neo today, but this isn't the first time we've seen it. We spotted the handset at the Carphone Warehouse website earlier this month, revealing that it will be coming to the UK.
The Galaxy Pocket Neo features a 3in screen, an 850MHz processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 2MP camera and all of the usual Android features including access to Google Play and Samsung's own app selection.
Samsung hasn't announced pricing and release date details, but we've contacted the firm for further information. We suspect that both phones will feature sub £200 if not £100 price tags. µ
