Samsung Galaxy Express 4G LTE Phone Announced, Midrange 4G Handset Is Official
Samsung just announced a brand new Galaxy device dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Express, a midrange 4G LTE phone that feels a bit similar to the Galaxy S II Plus, in spite of the lack of camera performance. This device supports connectivity bands 800/900/1800/2600 and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean straight out of the box.
There’s also a 4.5 inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen on board, a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, a 5 megapixel main camera with 1.3 MP front camera and Bluetooth 4.0. There’s also WiFi, AGPS, Glonass, MHL, NFC, 8GB of internal storage and 2000 mAh battery. As far as software goes, we’ve got the new TouchWiz UI, AllShare Play, S Beam, all sorts of Hubs, ChatON and various Google services and apps.
The device’s design reminds me of the Galaxy S III quite a bit and it appears that Samsung has said that it will sell the Galaxy Express on AT&T, but with slightly different design and specs. On AT&T they also changed the physical Home button on the Galaxy S II into a bunch of capacitive buttons, so they may do it again.
