Samsung has added four new Galaxy Android phones to its range this week, and while none quite match up to the Galaxy S5 and the Note 3, they’re perfect for people looking for a low-cost, good value smartphone.
The highest specced new model is the Galaxy Core 2. Samsung has taken some inspiration from the Note 3 for the Core 2’s design, and given it a leather-look rear panel for a touch of class. It has a 4.5-inch screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 5 megapixel camera, and a 2000mAh battery.
Next up is the Galaxy Ace 4, the latest in the long running Ace series of popular Samsung phones. The screen measures 4-inches, and a 1GHz dual-core processor powers the device, while the camera has 5 megapixels. A choice of 3G and 4G versions will be offered, with the latter coming with a 1.2GHz dual-core chip.
Finally, the Galaxy Young 2 and the Galaxy Star 2 both have 3.5-inch screens, and single core 1GHz processors. The primary difference between them comes from the camera, with the Young 2 getting a 3 megapixel camera, while the Star 2 makes do with 2 megapixels.
All four phones run Android KitKat, and have a revised version of the TouchWiz user interface over the top. It’s called TouchWiz Essence, and according to Samsung, it makes using the phones much easier. The pricing and release dates are still unknown.
