Published on March 6th, 2012
Samsung has unveiled today another Android smartphone in addition to their GALAXY lineup. This time, the cheapest android smartphone, most probably cheaper than Samsung Galaxy Y S5360. It is called Samsung Galaxy Pocket. The new budget phone is built with entry level specifications and is one of the most affordable smartphones.
The Samsung Galaxy Pocket features a (tiny) 2.8-inch display with a pixel resolution of 240×320. It is powered by an 832MHz single core processor and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Even though this phone is small, it has a 3GB internal storage which is even larger than that of Samsung Galaxy Y S-5360. Of course, it also has an expandable memory of up to 32GB through microSD.
The Samsung Galaxy Pocket also features a dual band 3.6 HSDPA, quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE network, Bluetooth, USB and WiFi connectivity. It also has a 2 megapixel rear camera and Stereo FM with RDS.
The size is quite small too, with a dimension of only 103.7mm x 57.5mm x 12mm it could fit perfectly in any pocket. That’s why it’s also called “Galaxy Pocket“.
Samsung Galaxy Pocket price is most probably around $100 or a little bit more. Since we are expecting it to be cheaper than the Galaxy Y. Galaxy Pocket will first be released in UK and then in other countries.
If you ask me the Samsung Galaxy Pocket is not that great, but if you are on a (very) tight budget and want to have an Android smartphone, then you might consider this one. Below is the Samsung Galaxy Pocket specs table.
