We reported about three weeks ago on Samsung plans to launch a new affordable Android smartphone in India, the Galaxy Y Plus.The device was spotted on Samsung India’s official site less than a month ago, but it hasn't been available for purchase until this week.
Infibeam is now taking orders for Samsung Galaxy Y Plus, so Android enthusiasts looking for an affordable smartphone may want to take this one into consideration.
Samsung Galaxy Y Plus is available for purchase for only Rs 6,290 outright, which is about $115 or €90. Check it out here.
Potential customers can choose from two color options, black and white. Last but not least, Infibeam states that all orders will ship in 2-3 business days for free.
Aside from the pretty low price, Samsung Galaxy Y Plus would also make a great alternative to some of the most expensive Android smartphones available in India due to the fact that it offers dual-SIM capability with dual standby.
Software-wise, the Galaxy Y Plus ships with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, along with Google full suite of services and applications.
The bad news is that the smartphone is packed with a low-performance 850 MHz single-core processor, which is complemented by 512MB of RAM. There are 4GB of storage inside, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
On the back, the Galaxy Y Plus features a sub-par 2-megapixel photo snapper with video recording. Sadly, this one does not come with secondary camera for video calls.
The 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen display supports 240 x 320 pixels resolution (143ppi) and 262k colors, while the 1200 mAh Li-Ion battery is rated by the manufacturer for up to 260 hours of standby time or up to 6 hours of talk time.
