We’re closer than ever to MWC 2013, that takes place in just about 3 weeks. Samsung may be attending the event, but they’re not bringing the much coveted Galaxy S IV. However they will be showcasing a bunch of new products, including the already confirmed Galaxy Note 8.0 and some handsets. Some of them got leaked recently in benchmarks as detailed below.
So, let’s analyze the new models, one by one and let’s see what specs they’ve got prepared for us:
Samsung Galaxy Fonblet 5.8 – GT-I9150/GT-I9152
The Samsung Galaxy Fonblet 5.8 is, according to the benchmarks a device based on a Broadcom BCM28155 CPU, clocked at 1.2 GHz. There’s also a VideoCore IV GPU inside, a qHD display and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean as the OS.
Samsung Galaxy Pocket 2 – GT-S5310/GT-S5312
Benchmarks have shown that the budget phone Galaxy Pocket 2 features a Broadcom CPU clocked at 850 MHz, a VideoCore IV GPU and a VGA display. Its OS is Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and the Galaxy Pocket 2 is a low end Samsung device.
Samsung Galaxy Star – GT-S5282
The Galaxy Star is another low end device made by Samsung, one packing the Spreadtrum processor, a Mali 400 GPU, a VGA display and it has Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean as the operating system.
Samsung Galaxy Young – GT-S6310/GT-S6312
The Galaxy Young is also a lower end device, one with a 1 GHz Qualcomm 7×27 CPU, Adreno 200 GPU and a HVGA display, plus Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Samsung tested the device with Android 4.0 ICS originally, but then switched to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Samsung Galaxy Frame – GT-S6810/GT-S6810P
The Galaxy Frame is yet another budget model with a Broadcom 1 GHz CPU, VideoCore IV GPU, a HVGA screen and Jelly Bean 4.1.2. The device will come in two versions, one with NFC and the other one without.
Samsung Galaxy ?? – GT-B9150
The GT-B9160 is a mystery phone with a dual core Exynos 5250 CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz, plus a quad core Mali T604 GPU and a Full HD screen. The interesting aspect about the handset is that it runs Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. We can’t really say if this is a phone or tablet, since Samsung uses the Bxxxx codenames for QWERTY devices, but that’s probably not the case.
So, which of these models has you excited?
