A new variation of the Samsung Galaxy S II has popped up on the Three network’s Swedish page. Called the Samsung Galaxy Z, it’s billed as “an affordable little brother to the Galaxy S II”.

Packing Android 2.3, it still has a dual core chip, but of the 1GHz variety as opposed to the S II’s 1.2GHz offering. Likewise, the screen quality takes a hit too; size and screen resolution stay the same at 4.2 inches and 800×480 respectively, but in a Super Clear LCD rather than the more expensive Super AMOLED displays.

Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, a 5MP front camera with 720p video recording capabilities and 8GB of memory expandable by microSD up to 32GB.

Best of all is the price; marked up at kr3995 without a contract, that’s roughly £390.

So, providing you’re not fussy about a slightly less powerful processor and a good-but-not-great screen, you’re getting a very attractive phone substantially cheaper than the handset that inspired it, without scrimping too much on the specs. Colour us impressed.

    well, it is the nice handset, that is truth. but it does not have much change with the galaxy, only the CPU.

    But the only question I have is that…does samsung galaxy’s default storage for apps installations in phone or in MicroSD memory?
