Samsung Galaxy Win smartphone won’t land in the UK

Samsung has confirmed to tech outlet V3 that the Galaxy Win smartphone will not be “ranging [the] Galaxy Win” in the UK although it is likely that grey imports will still make their way to the UK market.

The Win has been unveiled to the Chinese markets and Samsung did announce that the smartphone would be released in other markets but it looks like UK won’t be one of them.

The obvious apparent reason being that Samsung doesn’t want to cannibalise the sales of the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S3 and S4 with a cheaper alternative.

The phone – which is set to target the mainstream market - runs on a quad-core Cortex-A5 system-on-chip clocked at 1.2GHz, possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8225Q, 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, a 4.7in 800 x 480 pixel LCD display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2,000mAh battery, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Motion UX and the ability to run two SIM cards concurrently.

Samsung has recently unveiled a number of Android smartphones on the market include the Galaxy Trend II, the Galaxy Star, the Galaxy Pocket Neo with the Galaxy S4 Mini and a pair of large-screen Galaxy Mega smartphones rumoured to be in the pipeline.

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.
