Samsung Galaxy Y may be as small as Samsung Champ, but - like the latter - it sure packs a serious punch.
Announced just a few hours ago, Samsung Galaxy Y - measuring 104 x 58 x 11.5 mm and weighing just around 98 grams - could very well be the smallest Android phone thus far. But don't let its diminutive form factor fool you into thinking that it's lacking in features. Android 2.3-run Samsung Galaxy Y comes replete with a 832MHz processor, a 3-inch 320 x 240 TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen, 1200mAh battery and a 2 megapixel camera at the rear. As for connectivity, the phone supports 3G - 7.2Mbps HSDPA, Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.
No word on exact price and release date yet. But based on Samsung's explanation of its new naming system for its Galaxy phones, we can expect Samsung Galaxy Y to come with a near entry-level price point. Who knows, maybe the phone will end up as cheap as the current Samsung Champ Wifi.
Stay tuned for updates. I believe this phone is slated for release by early Q4 this year.
