Samsung To Launch Galaxy Y & Y Pro At IFA

Along with the M Pro, Samsung will showcase a new entry level smartphone called the Y Pro aimed at those yearning for a decent QWERTY keyboard.

The handset, which has the same candy bar form factor as the Blackberry Curve, is slightly smaller and comes with a lower specification compared to the M Pro.

It comes with a home-grown 832MHz SoC, a two megapixel camera, Bluetooth 3.0, a 1200mAh battery, Wi-Fi, built-in SWYPE, HSDPA and is slightly bigger than the M Pro.

There's also the Samsung Galaxy Y - otherwise known as the B5510 - which looks like a likely candidate to complement the Galaxy Ace as Samsung's entry level portfolio increases in size.

The smartphone is a candybar model with a 3-inch 320x240 pixel capacitive touchscreen, a 832MHz SoC, a two-megapixel rear camera, HSDPA, Bluetooth, microUSB, Wi-Fi, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a microSD card slot, a 1200mAh battery, SWYPE, support for TouchWiz and a range of colour schemes on offer.

Like the Y Pro, the M Pro and the W, this handset will be launched next week at the IFA in Berlin where Samsung is set to announce more pricing and availability details.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
