Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S Advance smartphone will be available to pick up on O2 and T-Mobile when it goes on sale in the UK, the networks have confirmed.
The duo join Three, which already confirmed it is on board for the launch at an as-yet unspecified date. Although pricing details have yet to be announced, T-Mobile is expected to offer it free with its newly announced ‘Fully Monty’ plan on a two-year £36 a month deal. This will entitle takers to 2,000 cross network minutes, unlimited T-Mobile to T-Mobile calls, unlimited text and unlimited data.
O2, on the other hand, will likely opt for its standard tariff for £31 a month for 600 minutes and unlimited texts, with the option to purchase a 500MB or 1GB data bolt on.
Standout specs of the Galaxy S Advance include a four-inch curved Super AMOLED screen, a dual core 1GHz processor - up from its predecessor’s single core number – and a five-megapixel rear-mounted camera that records videos in 720p HD.
Also on board is 8GB of internal storage with the option to quadruple it via the microSD slot and a front-facing camera for making video calls.
The handset itself has been given a design upgrade, boasting a curvier shape similar to the Galaxy Nexus while inheriting a few looks from the Galaxy S2, too.
Independent online retailers are currently taking pre-orders for the handset with Clove stating availability in the week commencing February 27th.
