There’s a Samsung device for everyone, with all kinds of budgets. I am surprised it’s not a saying yet. But I believe we will hear it in the future. Samsung is the only OEM to produce all kinds of devices at various price points available globally. This is the reason why it’s hugely successful.
After its spectacularGalaxy S8 launch, Samsung has announced a mid-range budget device called the Galaxy Feel. The device is up for pre-booking in Japan on NTT DoCoMo carrier site, and the sales are expected to begin sometime in the middle of June. There is no word on pricing as of yet by Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy Feel has been made available in White, Pink, and Black color variants. The fingerprint sensor is situated underneath the Home Button in the front, and it seems to sport a glass back with metal edges. The volume buttons sit on the left edge and the power button on the right edge. There’s a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack seen at the bottom edge of the device.
Samsung galaxy feel specifications:
The pre-booking listing has let the specifications out of the bag, and the Samsung Galaxy Feel runs on the Android 7.0 Nougat software with Android O update not certain. It sports a 4.7-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) Super AMOLED screen, and is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core processor. It comes with 3GB of RAM.
Let’s have a look at optics. Samsung Galaxy Feel sports a 16-megapixel back camera and a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies and video chats. As for internal storage, the smartphone offers 32GB of space. Connectivity options include 4G Voice over LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC, and Bluetooth version 4.2.
The Samsung Galaxy Feel’s dimensions’ measure at 138x67x8.3mm, and the smartphone weighs 149 grams. It also has incorporated dust and water resistance with an IP6X rating. It packs a 3000mAh battery that is rated to deliver up to 170 hours of standby time and supports quick charging. The company claims that the phone will fully charge in 110 minutes which is to be tested.
Among other news, Samsung looks set to launch a rugged version of its critically acclaimed flagship, the Galaxy S8 soon. The Galaxy S8 Active was spotted on the Wireless Power Consortium recently with a model number of SM-G892A.
To recap the specs of its flagship last year, the Samsung Galaxy S8 came with a Snapdragon 835 processor, a 5.8-inch ‘Infinity’ display with a QuadHD+ resolution, a stunning bezel-less design which wowed many techies, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and a 3,000mAh battery. It will be exciting to wait for the flagship this year as we lead up to the event of Samsung in the near future. Samsung’s hardware was criticised and considered ‘mAh’ couple of years back as it used to churn out same kind of designs all the time. It was changed with a recent transformation of vision at Samsung.
