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.
