Samsung is the number 1 manufacturer when it comes to Android smartphones or tablets. While the goals the manufacturer has set for this year may seem a bit to hard to reach, the way towards expansion can’t go around the Chinese market, even if its flooded by so many local offers.
The Samsung GT-I8258 is the manufacturer’s newest device for the Chinese market. The device bares some resemblance towards the all-to-popular Galaxy S II smartphone, with a smaller 4-inch WVGA display (4.3-inch for the S II). The hardware configuration is modest while on the software side there aren’t so many features worth considering.
Though at the moment we can’t be sure, the Samsung GT-I8258 may come with Android 4.0.4, along with the familiar TouchWiz interface on top. The device offers a 3 MP image sensor on the rear side, and the usual connectivity features, such as GPS, Bluetooth 3.0 with HS, USB v2.0, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and CMMB. The GT-I8258 is expected to be available on the Chinese market in the first half of 2013.
