Galaxy Light, a new low end Android device from Samsung


Don’t get too excited though. This device won’t be available this side of the world since it is locked to US carrier T-Mobile’s network and is an exclusive. However there is a reason why it is of great interest. Samsung has not followed up on its low end device offerings locally in a while and since the days of the Galaxy Pocket (which did really well) and later the Galaxy Music, things have slowed down a bit. Yeah I know there’s the likes of the Galaxy Fame and a few others but…

We could be looking at the reference design and model of what could later come to our shores in a different name since this fits the profile of a phone that will be pocket friendly and at the same time satisfy the needs of the low end segment of the market.

Samsung Galaxy Light

The specs of the Galaxy Light are as follows:

  • A 4 inch WVGA (480×800) display
  • 1.4 Ghz quad-core processor (since the device will be LTE capable this could be a Snapdragon 200 chip. Or maybe 400)
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 8 GB internal storage, expandable via a microSD slot
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • 1800 mAh battery
  • Runs Android 4.2.2
