Samsung Tocco Lite 2 Smartphone To Launch In March

Samsung will launch a new budget/entry level smartphone called the Tocco Lite 2 for cash strapped UK customers in March.

Like its predecessor, the handset does not feature 3G but does come with a 3-inch 320x240 QVGA resolution (ed : let's hope it's no resistive).

The onboard camera is a 3.2-megapixel model but has a fixed focus and is unlikely to have a flash Other features include a standard headphone socket, a weight of 95g and a 11.5mm thickness.

The Tocco Lite 2 is unlikely to come with Wi-Fi and will almost certainly come with a Java-based mobile platform rather than Android.

Samsung did not say what will be the selling price of the device or which networks would carry it; it's worth noting that the price of lower end models in the company's Galaxy range is approaching £50.

However given the glut of mainstream handsets that will be cleared out after Mobile World Congress, the Tocco Lite 2 will need to be very keenly priced if it aspires to be a best seller.

The current Tocco Lite currently sells for £50 at Carphone Warehouse with a similar set of features and had sales of more than 30 million units.

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.
