That Samsung Galaxy S Advance we heard about earlier today; it’s now all official and aboveboard. We’ve just got hold of the official press release from Samsung detailing the ins and outs of it’s spec and it’s availability.
Coming to Europe sometime in February, we’ve not heard anything specific about a UK release date yet. We’re still waiting to hear back from Samsung in the UK on that one so until then, here’s the low-down on the Samsung Galaxy S Advance.
It’s got a 4-inch 800×480 (WVGA) Super AMOLED screen, 5-megapixel camera and it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Round on the front there’s a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera as well and the main camera records 720p HD video at 30 fps.
The Samsung Galaxy S Advance is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and has 768MB of RAM thrown in for good measure. To be available 8GB and 16GB editions, there’s a microSD slot (up to 32GB, natch) so you’ve got plenty of room built-in as well as room for more.
More like a Samunsg Galaxy S2 Mini
So far it’s sounding like a mini version of the Galaxy S2. Size-wise it’s pretty similar, measuring 123.2 x 63 x 9.69mm and weighing just 120 grams. In terms of looks from the side it’s got more of a Galaxy Nexus-esque curve about it with that similar bulge towards the base of the phone.
Depending on the price, this could be the first mid-range/budget dual-core Android phone of 2012. We’re certainly more excited about this than we are the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus, with its 1GHz single-core chip and iPhone 3GS-ish looks.
Like we said, we’re waiting to get more UK-specfic info on the Samsung Galaxy S Advance. Until then we’ve just got the global press release to go on.
