Samsung Galaxy Young 2 goes official with low-end specs that focus on essential features and usability
Back in the day when we were kids cell phones weren’t as omnipresent as today but many youngsters did have their own handset, though the concept of a smartphone didn’t exist yet. Times have changed and nowadays almost everyone owns a smartphone or two so chances are that your little one isn’t going to be very happy with a simple feature phone. The latest Apple or HTC’s offerings probably wouldn’t be safe in those curious hands, but the Samsung Galaxy Young 2 will do just fine. The phone just went official with low-end specs that focus on essential features and usability.
Samsung Galaxy Young 2 offers right size for small hands…
The new Samsung Galaxy Young 2 doesn’t come with killer specs, but it has just enough to offer to satisfy the needs of the youngest users, or any other user who prefers simplicity over sophisticated technology. With dimensions of 109.8 x 59.9 x 11.8 mm and weight of 108 grams, the device is compact and lightweight. The 3.5-inch TFT display with HGVA resolution is just the right size to be easily operated by small hands.
Powering the Galaxy Young 2 is a single-core processor clocked at 1 GHz and there is just 512 MB of RAM on board, but since the phone is not aimed at power users, the chip and RAM most likely won’t be reasons to complain about. As shouldn’t be the 4 GB of internal memory thanks to microSD support up to 32 GB. The handset is also equipped with a 3-megapixel rear camera with fixed focus and 720p video playback
In addition to compatibility with HSPA+ and GSM/GRPS/EDGE networks, the Galaxy Young 2 also comes with Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n. Other features include dual-SIM support, Samsung’s ChatON messenger, FM Radio, GPS, Easy Text, Kies, HD Voice and a 1,300 mAh battery. Like the rest of Samsung’s most recent smartphones, the Galaxy Young 2 will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat skinned with TouchWiz Essence UI.
The device will be available in two color options – White and Iris Charcoal. Pricing remains unknown for now; however, the phone shouldn’t be too expensive. In fact, we expect it to be on the budget-friendly size of price range; though of course it’s entirely up to Samsung to decide how much potential buyers will have to fork out.
