Samsung Releases the Mid-Range Galaxy Neo


Samsung has announced a new phone, trying to give quite a rich feature-package for a comparatively low price, the Galaxy Neo.

The Galaxy Neo comes with a 5″ display, a quad-core processor and a 5 megapixel HD camera.

The display comes with a subpar resolution of 480 x 800 pixel resolution, which we think is a bit disappointing. The design is the same plastic which the company uses for the low-end phones.

Underneath, you will find a 1.2Ghz Cortex A7 quad-core processor, along with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB expandable internal storage. Around the back is the 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video, accompanied by a VGA shooter on the front.

The phone is powered by a 2,100 mAh battery, which is also removable. The version of OS is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, obviously customized by Samsung.

Here are the full specs of the phone:

  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI
  • 5″ display with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels
  • 9.6mm thick
  • Weight: 163g
  • 1.2Ghz Cortex A7 quad-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM with 8 GB expandable storage
  • 5 megapixel rear-camera with 720p HD video recording and LED Flash
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • Wi-Fi, 3G, FM Radio, microUSB 2.0, GPS
  • 2,100 mAh battery

The phone will be available for $360 in the coming few weeks. So that’s Samsung’s try at doing (another) mid-range right. Do they succeed or not? We leave that up to you.

    Price is very high. It must be between 25 to 30 thousands.

    360$ ya mid range phone ha????? asa to bik gaya phone zaroor he…………….

  • After MotoG the mid range category is revamped altogether… this is just ridiculous, expensive and no real selling point at all.

    • Eli Ehsan

  • Arif

  • Bilal Iqbal

    Samsung ka achar dalna hy is ti price mai… q ka Z4 best hy….

    • umer

      baat achar ki nhi quality aur value ki hai…

      • Bilal Iqbal

        Quality bhi ajati hy but log trust nhi krty brand k ilawa…apple htc and samsung are selling brand names…

  • Ghalib

    Nearly same specs, with Android 4.4, but smaller (but much better) display in Moto G. There is no reason to spend $350 on this when 16GB Moto G at $200 is a total no-brainer.

  • Expensive!

    What about the GPU?
