Samsung Galaxy R Officially Announced After Long Period of Leaks

Samsung Galaxy R has been a familiar smartphone for a while now, but only this week Samsung decided to unveil it officially. This device was also known as Galaxy Z when it leaked for the first time and even reached the hands of some pretty eager journalists before its maker even announced it.

The specs are still the same as they were back in the days of the Galaxy Z rumors. Samsung Galaxy R comes with a 4.2 inch Super Clear LCD display, replacing the Super AMOLED Plus display on the Galaxy S II. Under the hood there’s a dual core processor, although its exact flavor is not known yet. It could be an Nvidia Tegra 2 replacing the Exynos dual core from the Galaxy S II…

You also get 1GB of RAM on this model, 8GB of internal memory and a 5MP camera with 720p video capture support. The Galaxy R plays 1080p videos, supports HSPA9+ connectivity, WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0, while the OS of choice is Gingerbread. Basically, this is an underpowered Galaxy S II with a dumbed down camera and screen. No price yet, but expect one in the following days.
