Samsung trademarked the Galaxy Express name back in March, and now AT&T announced it would launch a new Android smartphone on November 16, the Samsung Galaxy Express.Although this is a mid- to high-end Android handset, it will probably be a good alternative to much more expensive smartphones such as Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II.
Potential customers should know that Samsung Galaxy Express will be available next week for as low as $100/€80 with a new two-year agreement.
In addition, AT&T customers that purchase a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, including the Galaxy Express, will get up to $100/€80 off a second Samsung device.
Keep in mind that this is a limited time offer, so customers interested in taking advantage of this promotion might want to hurry.
Unfortunately, there aren’t too many details available on the Galaxy Express’ specs sheet. However, AT&T has confirmed the smartphone would ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box.
Given the fact the device is exclusive to AT&T, we suspect it will take some time until Samsung announces whether or not plans to upgrade Galaxy Express to Jelly Bean. The good news is Samsung Galaxy Express comes with 4G LTE support, allowing for blazing fast data speeds.
The smartphone is equipped with a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, but there are no details on the amount of memory whatsoever.
We also know the Galaxy Express sports a “clear and bright” 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen display, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a high-capacity 2000 mAh battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer.
In other news, AT&T also announced the upcoming availability of the Mobile Hotspot MiFi Liberate. The device will be available on November 16 for only $50/€40 with a new two-year agreement.
