Samsung Galaxy Express has arrived! The company’s latest addition to its Galaxy family is a new Android-based smartphone, launched with 4G LTE compatibility, Jelly Bean and the usual Samsung paraphernalia. Projected as an upgraded version of Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, Samsung Galaxy Express is also said to be light on your pocket as it is being marketed as a budget phone.
The Galaxy Express specifications includes a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, with dimensions measuring 132.2 x 69.1 x 9.3 mm. Loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Express carries a dual-core processor with 1.2GHz along with 1GB of RAM. 8GB of internal memory space, which can further be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD is also included in the Galaxy Express. It is equipped with a 5.0-megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash at the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera at front.
Features like AllShare Play and S Beam make Galaxy Express interactive, while also making sharing of content more interesting. The Samsung Galaxy Express also features Mobile High Definition Link (MHL), a mirroring interface to link smartphones directly to any HD display. The device is also equipped with support for Near Field Communications (NFC), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and houses a 2000mAh battery. The usual Samsung features such as ChatOn, S Beam, and All Share also come in the budget phone. Priced at $99.00 in the US, Samsung is yet to divulge information on release date and pricing of Galaxy Express in the UK.
‘Express’ was trademarked by Samsung a few years ago and with the release of Galaxy Express, other trademarked names which include Galaxy Accelerate, Galaxy Thunder, and Galaxy Grand, not to mention the Galaxy Premier and Galaxy Next, are expected to follow suit. Samsung has also earmarked Galaxy Metrix, Galaxy Velvet and Galaxy Legend for its upcoming phones and tablets.
