Leaked a few weeks ago, Samsung Galaxy Axiom has just been officially announced by US Cellular. According to the carrier, the smartphone will be available at all US Cellular brick and mortar stores starting with the end of this week.
However, customers can purchase the Samsung Galaxy Axiom beginning today via US Cellular online store for only $80/€60 with a new two-year agreement.
In addition, those who do not wish to commit to a long-term contract can also grab the Galaxy Axiom for $400/€310 off-contract.
US Cellular claims the Samsung Galaxy Axiom “multi-functional smartphone is the perfect fit for anyone,” so you might want to check this one out before turning to other Android devices.
First of all, the Galaxy Axiom comes with full support for 4G LTE and runs Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, “which gives you a new level of Smartphone intelligence, control and customization,” US Cellular says.
Given the fact the Galaxy Axiom has just been introduced on the market, Samsung did not offer any details on whether or not it would offer an upgrade to Jelly Bean for this device.
Hardware-wise, the smartphone packs a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
On the back, the Galaxy Axiom sports a 5-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and no shutter lag. There’s also a secondary 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls.
Most of the smartphone’s specs are similar to that of the Galaxy S III Mini, including the 4.0-inch WVGA Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution.
Other highlights of the Galaxy Axiom include NFC (Near Field Communication), S Beam and S Voice, along with DLNA and Wi-Fi connectivity. Check it out here.
