Will Samsung’s ‘Galaxy Win’ Over Mid-Tier Customers?


Samsung has dominated the market for the past few years – releasing phone after phone with some amazing specs. Now Samsung seems to be targeting the mid-tier customer with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Win; there are also rumors of other mid-tier Galaxy Mega devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Win looks a lot like an offspring of the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy S4. But this offspring only mimics its predecessors on the outside. The Galaxy Win has a 4.7” WVGA LCD TFT (800X400) screen, coupled with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. This phone is also packed with a 1GB RAM and a 5 Mega-pixel camera on the back. The Galaxy Win will ship with Android 4.1 Jellybean and the TouchWiz UI. The consumer will also have dual-SIM capability and HSPA speeds – suggesting that the Galaxy Win is going to target the emerging markets.

In keeping with the mid-tier announcements, SamMobile has posted more details about the Samsung Galaxy Mega series devices – specifically the 5.8” GT-i9152. It looks like this device will also sport mid-tier features that include a dual-core Exynos processor, a qHD LCD display (960X540 resolution), 1.5GB RAM, an 8 Mega-pixel camera on the back, and a 2 Mega-pixel camera on the front. This phone will also run with the TouchWiz Android Jellybean UI and have a 2600mAh battery. It has also been rumored that the 5.8” GGT-i9152 will have both single and dual-SIM capability versions.

A new report from a Korean publication, ETNews, reports that the 6.3” Galaxy Mega device (GT-i9200) will sport a 1.4GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB RAM. The GT-i9200 will have an 8 Mega-pixel camera on the back along with a 2 Mega-pixel front-facing camera. Other specs include a 3200mAh battery, 3G and LTE connectivity, and will run with the TouchWiz Android Jellybean UI.
