Samsung has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy Win. As awesome as its name is it isn’t Samsung’s best, but it’s a very nice mid-range offering that should come in single and dual-SIM variants (depending on the region). Inside is a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch WVGA display, a 5 megapixel rear camera with 720p HD video recording, a VGA front-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage, a 2,000 mAh battery and more. For software, expect Android 4.1 with a hint of TouchWiz, featuring Easy Mode, Smart Alert, and more.
Easy Mode, as you might have guessed, will transform the user’s home-screen in an easy-to-digest collection of app shortcuts and information. It’s something that should help ease new smartphone owners into the cool pool instead of cannon-balling right into an icy sea of Android goodness. Smart Alert will automatically bring up notifications about calls, messages and calendar deadlines that have come in since you last picked your phone up, meaning you’ll never miss out on what’s important.
So where, exactly, is this little boy wonder headed? Welp, it’s actually already out in China under another name, but other regions — a list of whom doesn’t exist just yet — will get a crack at it soon. Samsung’s standard Titan Gray and Ceramic White are the two colors users can look forward to. Read on for full press details.
