The highly popular Samsung Galaxy series has got one more addition to its line-up. The latest entrant is the Galaxy Z, which is said to be a pocket-friendly sibling of the Galaxy S II. This is much like what Galaxy LCD has been to the original Galaxy. To our surprise, the announcement has come from the Swedish operator 3, but a formal announcement from the Korean giant may soon follow.
The device looks similar to the Galaxy S II, with slight changes in keys and possibly a brushed metal finish at the back. The phone is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip. The 5 megapixel camera is reportedly capable of 720p video recording. According to the listing, the phone has 8 GB onboard storage, as well as 32 GB memory card support. However, the device will sport a 4.2 Super Clear LCD instead of the premium SuperAMOLED Plus seen on the Galaxy S II. On the software front, the phone boasts the latest version of Android, which is 2.3 (Gingerbread).
The swedish operator has priced the Samsung Galaxy Z at 3995 kronor (approx Rs 28,350). We currently have no information on the device s availability in India, but looking at the response met by previous iterations of the Galaxy, we are pretty confident that Samsung won’t keep us waiting for a long time.
