Samsung Galaxy Win hopes for Chinese smartphone success with a mixed bag of specs
The Galaxy Win has been bouncing around several online stores over in Asia this week with a vague spec sheet but now Samsung China has gone on the record with all the details. While it might borrow the straighter design outline of the Galaxy S 4, there's not a whole lot to get excited about, with a 5-megapixel camera and a WVGA (800 x 480) resolution stretched thin across a 4.7-inch TFT display. Despite the low pixel count however, there's an unspecified 1.2GHz quad-core processor beating away inside, running Android 4.1, which suggests that the phone should go the distance, at least performance-wise. Underneath the removable cover, there's a 2,000mAh battery and a slot for microSD storage expansion, though the official listing doesn't tell us how much storage is built into the phone. It also packs a dual-SIM setup, a not-so-curious feature for Chinese handsets that often have to swing between different networks. Samsung's own messaging service, ChatON will also arrive (once again) preinstalled, alongside local fare like Sina Weibo and QQ. There's no release date just yet, but if you were looking for something that could pass as Samsung's latest flagship at a glance, minus the heavy bank balance hit, you'll have to head east when Galaxy Win does eventually land.
