Samsung announces new range of low cost smartphones for 2014 summer release

Samsung announced a new range of low-cost smartphones for users who would prefer to have a decent smartphone that’s not high up the ladder in terms of pricing. The smartphones will be packed with Android 4.4 KitKat. Samsung will also include a ‘diet’ version of TechWiz because the smartphones processor specifications and speed won’t be able to run the full TechWiz version.

The four smartphones include the Galaxy Core II , which had the most advanced features, Galaxy Ace 4, Galaxy Young 2 and Galaxy Star 2.


Galaxy Core II features;

This phone comes with a 4.5 inch display and a 2000mAh battery as well as a 1.2 Quad-Core processor and 768MB of RAM. The phone will also pack a 5 MP camera with LED flash, and will support Dual Sim technology. It will sport a leather-back cover design and 4GB internal storage.

Galaxy Ace 4 features;

Packed with a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor and 512 MB of RAM, the Ace 4 also comes with a 1500mAh battery, 4 inch WVGA display, 5 MP camera and 4GB internal storage.

Galaxy Young 2 features;

With a 1.0 GHz single-core processor, a 1300mAh battery and a 3.15 HVGA display, this will be the 3rd smartphone out of the four in the pecking order. The device will also feature a 3 MP Camera and 4 GB internal storage.

Galaxy Star 2 features;

1.0 GHz Single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 3.5 inch HVGA display and 4 GB internal storage. This phone will also lack the GPS functionality and will feature a 2MP camera.

Samsung’s ability to manufacture a wide range of smartphones ranging from low to high cost prices has given it a better stand in the world market as compared to other smartphone makers especially Apple. Some of these phones are not going to be very profitable as analysts have projected almost razor-thin profits for some of them, however, the advantage is that Samsung gets to promote its name and the Galaxy brand. The ability of users being able to identify with the Samsung brand names has given Samsung a high end table in the market, making almost every device they launch profitable.

Later in the year we expect Samsung to release Samsung Z for the market, after it was launched just a few weeks ago. Samsung Z is the smartphone running on the Tizen OS, Samsung’s official operating system, as it struggles to shake off dependence on Google’s Android OS.
