Samsung unveils budget-friendly 4G LTE equipped Galaxy Express smartphone

Samsung to offer budget friendly Galaxy Smartphone, includes 4G LTE

It's no secret that Samsung is the top predator in the Android food chain at the moment, and the South Korean company has set its sights on the low-cost smartphone market with its new Galaxy Express 4G LTE capable smartphone.


The value-driven handset bears a striking resemblance to Samsung's flagship Galaxy S III, and rightfully so. Using existing tooling is the perfect way to save money on the manufacturing process. The Express comes to the table featuring an unknown 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

A 4.5 inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, 5MP rear camera and 1.3MP front camera round out the hardware features. The Express features quad-band 4G LTE support in the 800, 900, 1800 and 2600 spectrum ranges, and ships with Android 4.1 Jellybean, skinned with Samsung's TouchWiz Nature UX. I have been unable to find any pricing information so the jury is still out on this "budget" smartphone.
