Samsung is about to unveil a new addition to the Galaxy range of Android smartphones, in the shape of a handset that sits neatly between the original Galaxy S and Samsung’s current flagship kit.
Unearthed by CNET, the so-called Galaxy R will run the latest 2.3 version of Android out of the box and pack an NVIDIA Tegra 2 powerful dual-core processor for a silky smooth smartphone experience – the latter putting it on a par with the Galaxy S 2 in the brawn stakes.
It’s also home to the same rear-mounted five-megapixel camera with 720 HD video recording (compared with the S 2’s eight-megapixel number that records 1080p footage) and a 4.2-inch screen that shaves a trifling 0.1-inches off that phone’s handsome Super AMOLED 4.3-inch display.
Elsewhere the hybrid phone, which tech watchers had previously provisionally dubbed the Galaxy S Plus, features a 1.3-megapixel snapper for video calls, 8GB of internal storage and microSD card support to boost capacity by up to 32GB.
The Galaxy R is expected to drop before the month is out, with all major UK carriers expected to be on board.
