Samsung Galaxy Z revealed: The S II's wallet-friendly sibling

Android, Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

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.
