The Samsung Illusion Brings Last Years High End to the Affordable Mid Range

And another one! In the past few weeks we have seen the launch of many low end smart phones set at the perfect price points with some rather intriguing specifications. Most recently the Sprint Express, the At&t Pantech Pocket and now of course its Verizon’s turn. The newly announced affordable Android from Verizon comes to us by the name of the Samsung Illusion. The Illusion is a perfect little phone with all the power you need to introduce yourself or others to the power of a smart phone. As the holidays near the more affordable smart phone options move forward in hoards, or at least three at time.

The Samsung Illusion is one of Big Red’s new devices that have just been added to the lineup of holiday smart phone options. The Illusion is a midrange smart phone that can keep up with the best of them. While it’s not news of the Galaxy Nexus, it’s good to see the low end move up in the world. The Samsung Illusion will be made available starting tomorrow November 23rd 2011 and will only cost you about $80 bucks, on new contract of course. The Samsung Illusion is essentially an affordable Nexus S, or an unlabeled refresh to the original Galaxy S line up. So what does the Illusion pack in for its end users? Well a bunch especially for the price. Internally the Illusion uses a 1GHz Hummingbird single core processor that gives Android version 2.3 or Gingerbread its go. The Hummingbird is backed by 512 MB of RAM and 2GB of internal storage. You can also expand your saving capabilities with a built in microSD card reader that can read up to 32GB sized cards. The Illusion packs in a 3 mega pixel camera that can record video. The details include connectivity like, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/a, Hotspot, microUSB and Bluetooth 3.0. With a 3.5 inch touch screen that clock’s in a 320 x 480 pixel resolution and is providing last year’s high end at an affordable price. How’s the Illusion looking to you?
