Both budget-friendly smartphones ship with Android 4.4 KitKat onboard
Samsung has just announced the upcoming availability of no less than four low-end Android smartphones that will go on sale in the coming weeks, the Galaxy Core II, Galaxy Star 2, Galaxy Ace 4 and Galaxy Young 2.Each of these smartphones is a sequel to other devices that were launched by Samsung a while ago. All four are aimed at the entry-level smartphone market, so expect Samsung to price them accordingly.
Unfortunately, there are no details on the price tag, but we know that most of these smartphones will be available on the marker beginning next month. Availability will depend on country and carrier, so stay tuned for more details on this one.
We will be talking about the Galaxy Ace 4 and Galaxy Young 2, as the other two smartphones have been covered in a separate article.
Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 is the better-featured smartphone of the two, but that doesn’t mean that Android enthusiasts should expect any impressive specs.
The smartphone is equipped with a 1GHz dual-core processor, but there will be a second version of the Galaxy Ace 4, which will be packed with LTE support and a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU.
It’s also worth mentioning that the LTE Galaxy Ace 4 will come with 1GB of RAM, whereas the 3G model only packs 512MB of RAM. However, both variants should be equipped with only 4GB of storage and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB).
Both Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 versions sport 4-inch WVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen displays that support 480 x 800 pixels resolution, along with dual-cameras (5-megapixel rear camera and VGA front-facing camera).
Another difference between the two Galaxy Ace 4 models is the battery. The LTE model is powered by an 1800 mAh battery, but the 3G version is equipped with a slightly lower capacity 1500 mAh battery.
Moving on to Samsung Galaxy Young 2, this smartphone has even lower specs than the Galaxy Ace 4. The smartphone sports a 3.5 HVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen display that supports 320 x 480 pixels resolution and packs a 1GHz single-core processor.
On the back, the smartphone packs a 3-megapixel camera, but there’s no front-facing camera. The Galaxy Young 2 features only 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, but users will be able to further expand storage up to 32GB via microSD card slot.
Last but not least, Samsung Galaxy Young 2 offers dual-SIM capability and it’s powered by a ,300 mAh battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer.
Both Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 and Galaxy Young 2 will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat operating system out of the box, sometime in July.
