With smartphones being the main product on the mobile market, feature phones are getting scarce. However, there are still folks who prefer their life simple and instead of sophisticated devices choose easy to use phones that make calls and send messages. With those customers in mind, especially the ones in emerging markets, Samsung has prepared a new family of products. The new lineup of feature phones is called the Rex series and includes 4 handsets – Samsung Rex 90, Samsung Rex 80, Samsung Rex 70, and Samsung Rex 60 priced from $80 to $120.

Out of the four, the most advanced is the Samsung Rex 90. The phone boasts a 3.5-inch HVGA (320 x 480) display, a 3.2 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 1,000 mAh battery. The Rex 80 packs a smaller 3-inch QVGA display and 3 megapixel camera, while other features are identical to its bigger brother. The Samsung Rex 70 is very similar to the Rex 80, except its camera is only 2 megapixels and there is no Wi-Fi support. The Rex 60, the least capable and the cheapest of the series, comes with 2.8-inch resistive touch screen and 1.3 megapixel camera.
All Rex phones offer TouchWiz UI, home screen widgets, access to social networks, EDGE cellular connectivity, microSD card slots for storage expansion, 10 free games and basic internet access via Opera Mini. The handsets will come in two variants – single- and dual-SIM and should be available in India soon. For now we have no information when and if they ever hit the stores in other markets.
