At its press conference in Sao Paulo Samsung announced on Tuesday the Galaxy Win 2 Duos, which is a successor of the Galaxy Win Duos released in 2013. Although the phone doesn’t offer top notch features, the presence of the support for ultra fast 4G LTE connectivity and digital TV deserves our attention. The smartphone has just hit the Brazilian market labeled with the price tag of BRL 779, which is an equivalent of something round $249.
Samsung Galaxy Win 2 Duos TV Android Phone
The Samsung Galaxy Win 2 Duos TV arrives as a dual-SIM device running the updated Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. Simultaneously, measuring 131 x 68.1 x 8.8 mm and weighting 130 grams the handset also sports a bit smaller screen size factor at just 4.5-inch (the previous model of the phone debuted with a 4.7-inch display on the board). While making the screen of the Galaxy Win 2 Duos TV smaller, the manufacturer stayed loyal to the same WVGA 480x800p resolution we may found in its predecessor, which may result in a bit sharper, perhaps even unnoticeably better viewing experience.
Moving on, the new Galaxy smartphone is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon paired with 1GB RAM and 8GB of built-in memory that can be expanded via microSD cards. When it comes to battery, the Galaxy Win 2 Duos TV’s lights will be kept on by a 2,000 mAh unit.
On the optics side the phone’s future users will be provided with a rather poor as for current market standards combination of a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and definitely not selfie-friendly 2-megapixel sensor located at the handset’s back. All these has nothing in common with the Samsung’s assurances that they kept in mind the growing popularity of selfies among Brazilians while working on the Galaxy Win 2 Duos optics. Naturally, the mentioned 2-megapixel front-facing camera is a visible improvement when compared to the Galaxy Win Duos VGA shooter, but it may be considered still far too low for today’s at least 5-megapixel front-facing sensor standards.
Speaking of the Galaxy Win 2 Duos TV specs, we cannot tell that they’re more than decent, however the phone’s connectivity options are surprisingly good. Except the mentioned support for dual-SIM function, the smartphone comes equipped with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct and 4G LTE connectivity.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Win 2 Duos TV availability and pricing details, the phone is already accessible on the Brazilian market dressed in black and grey color options. The digital TV-capable version of the smartphone cost something round $249, but you may also buy the model without the support for digital TV paying only $233. So far, Samsung haven’t released any official announcement regarding the phone’s availability in other regions of the world, so its global premiere is still quite uncertain.
