Samsung reveals Advance-d Android ringer
New star in the Galaxy range
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. ®
