Samsung launches low-end Android Galaxy M smartphone in South Korea

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has announced another addition to their Galaxy range of mobile phones, the Samsung Galaxy M - with a 4-inch screen and a thin 9.9mm slim chassis.

Samsung unveiled a new naming convention for the Galaxy portfolio in August last year, where a letter succeeding the word ‘Galaxy' relates to a unique series in their devices. ‘M' relates to ‘Magical', which equals a high-performance mobile phone and with a low-end price point.

The Galaxy M is that very model and arrives as an entry-level smartphone, with a stylish design that compliments their other existing products.

Samsung's latest announced handset tips up with a 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen, a 1GHz processor and 4GB of internal memory.

The mobile also has a 3megapixel camera and Bluetooth 3.0, whilst running from the AndroidGingerbread' 2.3 OS.

Samsung hasn't released any more details to the Galaxy M or any costs, nor have any mobile phone networks laid claim to the device, as yet.

ITProPortal.com is unsure whether the handset will made it to the UK in its present form, as the product boasts a feature unseen in mobiles available here - such as the ability to play terrestrial digital TV.
