Samsung Announces New GALAXY Pocket

    March 6, 2012

Samsung has announced the latest addition to their popular GALAXY line of Android-based smartphones. The new GALAXY Pocket will be available overseas starting sometime this month.

The new GALAXY Pocket is a slim, lightweight design intended to be a little more portable than the average smartphone without sacrificing functionality. It weighs in at 97 grams (3.42 ounces), is 11.98 mm thick, and sports a 2.8-inch LCD display. It has 3GB of on-board memory, plus a microSD card slot that allows as much as 32GB more storage. It sports a 2 megapixel fixed-focus rear camera, wi-fi connectivity, and HSDPA capability. The operating system is Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The GALAXY Pocket will be available in Italy this month, with rollouts to the rest of Europe, Russia, Latin America, Asia, China, the Middle East, and Africa to follow. The company’s announcement says nothing about a U.S. release, so it doesn’t look like American customers will have access to the GALAXY Pocket any time soon.
