Entry-Level Samsung Galaxy M Style Officially Announced


Following their announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus, Samsung has announced the Samsung Galaxy M Style. Like the Galaxy Ace Plus, the Galaxy M Style is little more than a refresh of their 2011 entry-level Galaxy devices. It gets a nice 4 inch Super AMOLED display with a 1GHz processor, 4GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 3.0, a 3 megapixel rear camera, a front-facing camera, a 1650mAh battery and Android 2.3. The device has some metallic properties to it and will come in several different colors, including black, pink, blue and the white you see above. It’s a looker for sure and expect it to be quite affordable on-contract. [via Samsung Tomorrow]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. That ‘T’ on the back = Tegra2, not bad.

  2. sheesh!  they are spitting out these Galaxy variants like potato chips!  medium, large, extra large, small, premium, economy, flagship, reference design, colors, accessories (vacuum tube speakers) etc.  Samsung is going for world domination in every category!!!

    1. That’s what I like about Samsung and why I switched from iOS to Android. choice, and lots of them.

      1. yes freedom and choice is a beautiful thing.  and this is why Android is winning.

  3. It does look nice, comparable spec to an SGS1. However, who wants to buy a phone with Android 2.3 when Android 4.0 is out. Any promises of an update “at a later stage” is worthless as so many manufacturers have already proven.

    1. pls tell me what about 2.3 is insufficient?

      1. You are kidding right? How can Android 2.3 even compare to Android 4.0!! ICS has tons of new features including: complete update to the Android UI, huge overhaul to all the Google applications, powerful mobile data usage management, improved lock screens including face unlock, built-in support for NFC and NFC communications, massive improvement to the camera (e.g. 0 lag shutter release and ability to take photos while recording video), improved contact information aggregation, built-in visual voicemail, consistent system wide gestures, easily the best virtual keyboards available, built-in ability to capture screenshots. It also unifies both the mobile and tablet branches of the Android OS so it will make application development easier, this’ll give developers more time which will probably be spent created more applications and/or higher quality applications. The whole performance of ICS has been improved and optimised making use of hardware acceleration for even basic UI animations/displays. ICS also fixes a number of security issues as well as fixing other bugs in previous versions of Android.

        1. half of what you mentioned is already on my Galaxy SII. I asked you why is 2.3 insufficient, not why ICS is better.

          1. I too have an SGS2 and most of what I mentioned is not built within preloaded version of Android that comes with the device. You have either obtained the extra functionality by 3rd party applications or by using a custom ROM, both of which are far beyond the elegance of having it built into the “out of the box” software. However, to answer your question, if by ‘insufficient’ you mean can someone do their tasks with Android 2.3 then the answer is probably yes, I’m sure most people could get by with Android 1.0 or using some of the oldest smartphones that pre-date Android. Being able to get by with older technology does not make the latest software any less desirable. Regardless of this, the biggest insufficiency is the security aspect in that nearly all of the malicious application exploits have taken advantage of security weaknesses in old versions of Android OS. Being on the latest version of Android and riding on all the hotfixes/updates that come with that is such a smaller risk exposure than being stuck on an OS version which is over a year old.

          2. This is an ENTRY level phone. As such, I’m about certain there won’t be an update to ICS. For an entry level phone, it beats most, if not all, other company’s entry level devices. Not everyone can afford the newest, top of the line device.

  4. That ‘T’ on the back is the logo for SK Telecom. 

  5. only thing entry level ab this is the 3mp cam

  6. i would be sold on it if it had at least a 5mp camera
