South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung has just announced the launch of a new handset in its home land, namely the Samsung Galaxy K. The new smartphone is powered by Google's Android 2.2 Froyo operating system and should be released on KT's airwaves.
The new mobile phone, sporting model number of SHW-M130K, is said to be yet another Galaxy S variant the handset vendor came up with for the South Korean market.
With the new launch, there are three different Galaxy S
models that Samsung pushed to the South Korean market, including Galaxy S for SKT, Galaxy U for LG U+, and the new Galaxy K for KT.
However, the new Galaxy K sports Google's Android 2.2
operating system right from the start, which should offer improved performance levels when compared to previous version of the platform.
The specifications list of the new mobile phone
also includes a 3.7-inch AMOLED Plus touchscreen display, as well as a speedy 1GHz application processor.
Moreover, it should arrive on shelves with a wide range of connectivity options on board, including 3G, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth, as well as with wireless tethering.
The handset's specs list also includes 8GB of internal memory, T-DMB, Adobe Flash 10.1 support and Samsung's Social Hub, not to mention fast access to the Android Market, as well as to KT’s Ole market.
According to a recent article
on Samsung Hub, the new device
is expected to arrive on the market in two color versions, namely white and black.
As for price tag, it appears that the new Samsung Galaxy K would go for 800,000 won (US$716), though the wireless carrier might also put in place various contract options for it.
The Samsung Galaxy S already proved to be a highly successful Android-based device all around the world (including the US or South Korea), and the availability of more variants should help the mobile phone maker
boost sales even more.
