Samsung is readying a successor to the very affordable Champ, which was the cheapest touchscreen phone in the company’s portfolio when it launched last year. The C3330 Champ 2 is probably going to stay true to its predecessor’s roots and keep the same main selling points – chief among them, the price.
The Samsung Champ 2 will have the model number C3330 and will come with slightly upgraded specs compared to the original Champ. It will have a 2.4-inch 240×320 touchscreen with stylus support, a 2 MP camera, Bluetooth 3.0, a music player, support for IM and Samsung’s ChatON group messaging service, an FM radio, a 3.5 mm headset jack, microSD card support, and a 1,000 mAh battery. The Champ 2 will come with Samsung’s app store preinstalled.
That’s all the information we have for now, but it’s safe to assume that the Champ 2 will hit the streets (mostly in developing markets) pretty soon for a price similar to that of its predecessor. We’ll let you know when that happens.
