Quad-core processor, 4.7-inch WVGA screen, 5-megapixel camera
Another day, another mid-range Samsung phone. Today sees the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Win -- a middling Android handset that looks like a cross between a Galaxy S3 and a Galaxy S4. The internals are decidedly less high-end than either of those handsets. There's a 4.7-inch WVGA (800x480) LCD TFT screen on the front, a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU inside, coupled with 1GB of RAM. On the software side, it's running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Sammy's TouchWiz UI. Around the back there's a 5-megapixel rear camera.
Connectivity is limited to plain old HSPA speeds -- 7.2Mbps down, 5.76Mbps up -- suggesting that the Galaxy Win might be intended for emerging markets. It'll also be offered with dual-SIM capabilities, a common feature for smartphones in emerging markets. So while it might not check all the boxes for Western consumers, that's not necessarily the target audience here.
No details on pricing or availability for the Galaxy Win just yet. We'll update this post with release info as it becomes available.
