Like the other Samsung phones that carry the Galaxy branding but lack the modifier ‘S’ at the end, the Samsung Galaxy U will carry shades of the premier Android phone from the Korean manufacturer while not quite stacking up in other areas. That’s all well and good, really. Different strokes for different folks, as Samsung is covering almost every tier of the smartphone market in terms of form factors, pricing, and other features. Now we are beginning to get a better picture of where the Galaxy U fits in thanks to some specs revealed today.
The phone will be operable on J-CDMA and CDMA Rev. A networks. A 3.7-inch AMOLED Plus display comes in at a 480×800 resolution and a 1GHz S5PC111 chip will power an undisclosed version of Android. The AMOLED Plus screen is said to be an in-between from the standard AMOLED and Super AMOLED displays. A 5MP camera features autofocus and 720p HD video recording. Wireless connectivity includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0.
Keeping these features in mind we get a slightly smaller device that will rank just a smidge below the Galaxy S in terms of power and features. No word or pricing or availability comes along with these specs, and with new Galaxy phones coming out in every corner of the world we don’t want to even venture a guess at where the U will show up.
