Samsung reveals Advance-d Android ringer

New star in the Galaxy range

Top three mobile application threats

Samsung sent its latest Galaxy handset into orbit today, unveiling the Advance S, an Android blower that apparently strikes a balance between style, power and performance. Of course it does.

The Samsung Galaxy Advance S boasts a 1GHz dual-core processor; a 4in, 480 x 800 OLED display; 768MB of Ram; and up to 16GB built-in storage.

It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, spruced up with Samsung's TouchWiz UI, and comes packed with connectivity features through Samsung Hubs and ChatON - the company's own phone number-based messenger service.

There's also 5Mp rear- and 1.3Mp front-facing cameras, as well as 3G HSPA support for 14.4Mbps data connections - if your network operator supports that speed, of course.

The Samsung Galaxy Advance S will roll out in Russia from February, with the European market set to follow in the not too distant future. Prices have yet to be set. ®
