The Samsung Galaxy S Advance
Whoever said the original Galaxy S line was dead by the hands of the new GSII was obviously not Samsung. When the original Galaxy S showed face it was surely an impressive bunch that helped improve the smart phone world. But when the Galaxy S II devices appeared the original Galaxy S was surely forgotten, right? Well not quite. As Vibrant, Fascinate, Epic 4G and Captivate users pray for the latest in Android via an update, it looks like Samsung has made official the Galaxy S Advance. So what is in a name? Well improvements of course. The Galaxy S revamped for 2012.
While there were not many, if any details surrounding the launch of the Galaxy S Advance the device seemingly has popped up out of nowhere and is ready to serve emerging markets as a mid-ranged device. With a range of specifications that fit between the Galaxy S and GSII line ups, it looks like the new ‘mid-range’ has just become that much better. So what type of greatness can be expected? Well, the Galaxy S Advance starts with slightly curved design that sports a perfectly sized Super AMOLED 4 inch touch screen that provides a 480×800 pixel resolution. Internally it gets better. Inside this new smart phone resides a dual core 1GHz processor and will ship with Android version 2.3 or Gingerbread. As expected Samsung makes no notes about the Galaxy S Advance getting an Ice Cream Sandwich update, and if history is anything to go by, an update should surely not be expected. The Advance S comes with 768MB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. Around back a 5 mega pixel camera can be seen with an LED flash and 720p video recording capabilities. Upfront a 1.3 mega pixel shooter resides for all your video conferencing needs. You can also expect micro SD or micro SDHC card reader that can accept memory up to 32GB. Other details including, Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n, a, Bluetooth 3.0 and HSPA 14.4 connectivity make this Galaxy S Advance a pretty well rounded smart phone. The Galaxy S Advance is slated for launch in mother Russia in February, and will then go on tour to launch in China, Latin America, Southwest Asia, Africa, Middle East, Europe and CIS. No price has been announced on the new Galaxy S Advance, but surely it will match the niche right?
