Samsung will not be carried away with the low cost smartphone vendors as Samsung #1 position is much reliable on selling of low cost Galaxy phones. Recently, Samsung added two more low cost budget smartphone in India as they unveiled Galaxy Fame and Galaxy Young. These are not just ordinary phone with regular Galaxy stuff, but include some surprising features. Also Galaxy Express was introduce few weeks back.
Samsung Galaxy Fame
Just like how Galaxy Young surprised everyone with interesting one or the other stats, Galaxy Fame too is with some surprises for the users. Galaxy Fame includes 3.5 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen display providing 320 x 480 pixels resolution at a good pixel density. It’s powered with 1 Ghz single core processor supported with 512 MB DDR3 RAM taking care of the processing unit.
There is 5 mega pixel camera on the rear side with 720p HD video recording capabilities and better image capturing in low light conditions using LED flash. It will include Android 4.1 Jelly Bean version preinstalled on the device out of the box. It will be preloaded with Samsung myServices.
NFC doesn’t seem to attract users much now as it’s just for the high-end devices. Moreover not app people have high-end smartphones with them and thinking to change this equation, the Korean giant has introduced Galaxy Fame with NFC chip. Using NFC users can easily tap and share photos, audio and videos with nearby NFC enabled phones. Also NFC in future will be mode for mobile payments as well. Surprisingly we see a VGA front facing camera as users are more interested in face to face free video chat using Google Hangouts at Google Plus and other services.
This handset comes along with free of the Samsung apps pre-installed like Samsung KIES, S Cloud, Samsung Hub, TouchWiz, Samsung ChatOn, Game Hub Lite, Turn Over to Mute, Shake to Update, Samsung Apps. It will be available in various colors version of Pearl White and Metallic Blue.
