Samsung Galaxy Wide 2 - Another overpriced device from Samsung?

Korean giants Samsung just announced the release of the new Galaxy Wide 2 - an overpriced entry level device that offers nothing new.

Yesterday, Samsung announced the release of the Galaxy Wide 2, a budget Korean version of the Samsung J7 2017.

The Galaxy Wide 1 was popular among middle-aged men in Korea and the Wide 2 will be hoping to build on its success. The Wide 2 will be cheaper than its predecessor, but price aside, it doesn’t offer anything special for a device released in 2017.

At the moment, the exact processor to be used in the Wide 2 remains unverified, but it has been confirmed to be an octa-core one and the device will also ship with a 5.5” HD LCD display, 2.5D glass, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage memory, and a 3300mAh battery.

It, rather disappointingly, opts out of a fingerprint reader but does come with a 13MP primary camera and 5MP selfie shooter.

The Galaxy Wide 2 is expected to retail with a price tag of $265, a rather hefty one for a device that can at best be described as functional. Those outside the US would be better served getting themselves a mid-range Chinese device.
