Samsung_SM_G357M_G357FThe Samsung SM-G357’s spec’s leak out into the headlines! As the dust of the years flagship parade begins to settle the expectation to see lower end or mid range devices seemingly gets a bit higher. Samsung, while no stranger to mid range or low end Android devices has rarely launched such a device with the very latest version of the robotic operating system. While the practice is just as rare across the market it seems the trend may be catching on. Some LG phones have recently released with Android version 4.4 and it may be that Samsung is following suit with the SM-G357M.

The mysterious Samsung SM-G357M was spotted by the watchful eyes at mysamsungphones.com during its trip to the Bluetooth SIG website. The device then later showed up in a user agent profile on Samsung own website. The initial details surrounding the leak gave us a screen resolution, a model number and a version of Android. Shortly after the device was brought into the lime light a different variation of the handset was spotted in an Indian import tracking system labeled with a model number of SM-G357F. The G357F as you would expect is likely the same model device just destine for a different market. The spec’s for the F variation lay out as such. It comes with a 4.3 inch 480×800 touch screen display that is built over a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. Around back it is expected to sport a 5 mega pixel camera with full HD video recording capabilities, while a VGA quality sensor can be found up front. Additionally the device is said to come with Wi-FI, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC connectivity all the while running with, yup…you guessed it Android version 4.4.2.
