Samsung has confirmed that the next addition to its Galaxy family of smartphones, the Galaxy R, will be landing in the UK after all.

Elsewhere, it’s home to a 4.19-inch Super LCD touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera with HD recording skills in 720p, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel VGA for video calls, 8GB of internal storage (expandable by a further 32GB via the microSD slot) and the latest, tastiest build of Android Gingerbread installed out of the box.

Exactly when we can expect the handset to hit store shelves or how much it will cost is still a mystery. Rest assure we’ll bring you all the gen as soon as we have it.
