Samsung Galaxy Premier Coming to South Korea as Quad Core Galaxy Pop Handset

Samsung Galaxy Premier is coming to South Korea, but in the process it may get rebranded to Galaxy Pop and it may get a specs bump. The source here is a post on a Korean forum, but we advise you to take the info with the usual grain of salt. Here’s what the device looks like:

The phone has the codename SHV-E220 and it’s intended for a February launch. Samsung Galaxy Premier/Pop will have a 1.4 GHz Exynos 4412 processor and not the dual core CPU on the Premier for the international market. Samsung also upgraded the specs of the Korean Galaxy Grand with a quad core CPU, so this doesn’t surprise me. The rest of the specs stay the same.

This means we still have a 4.65 inch HD Super AMOLED display, Android 4.1.2 OS with a brand new TouchWiz UI, 3G/LTE, DMB and 8 or 16 GB of storage. There’s also an 8 megapixel cam at the back, 2 MP one upfront and 2100 mAh battery. Galaxy Pop launches in Korea on SKT, KT and LG U+.
