Samsung rolls out Galaxy V Plus smartphone
While Android KitKat is largely outdated, it seems that even big names in the industry like Samsung still launch low-end handsets that use it. The new handset of the South Korean tech giant debuts this week in Malaysia, and its specs are far behind most recent budget-friendly smartphones they recently released.
Samsung Galaxy V Plus has the following technical specs and features:
- Processor: 1.2 GHz dual-core (no details specified, probably a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200)
- Memory/Storage: 512 MB RAM; 2 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB
- Display: 4-inch TFT multitouch with 800X480 pixels
- Cameras: 0.3 MP front, 3 MP back
- Connectivity: 3G, dual-SIM, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with GLONASS
- Operating system: Android 4.4 KitKat
- Weight/Dimensions: 0.27 pounds; 4.78X2.48X0.42 inches
- Battery/Autonomy: 1,500 mAh (removable); up to 8 hours talk time on 3G, 6 hours Internet browsing on 3G and 9 hours on WiFi, up to 35 hours audio playback
This smartphone is available in white or black and will probably hit more markets in the future, although it will probably stay away from the US for good. Pricing has not been unveiled yet, but it should not exceed $100 USD.
