The Galaxy S Adavance of Samsung is targeting consumers who want a device with more power compared to the original Galaxy S of Samsung but without the huge screen of the Galaxy S2. The handset is intended to be an upgrade of the original Galaxy S device with its quicker processor and a more modern design. After several delays, the smartphone has emerged on Clove, a retailer in the United Kingdom, and it is expected to ship starting March 26 for a tax inclusive, unlocked phone price of £354.00 or $550 USD.
Some consumers think that the price of the Samsung Galaxy S Advance is too much for a smartphone that consists of plenty of older technology. Its biggest enhancement compared to its two year old Galaxy S version is a two core processor with 1.0 Ghz power. Other features that the phone maintains are its display screen of 4 inches, a RAM of 1 GB and a camera of 5 MP.
The Samsung Galaxy S Advance utilizes the standard combination of the Gingerbread and TouchWiz which operates well with a RAM of 768 MB. Its Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 800x480 gets somewhat of a refresh because of its glass panel with a concave curved shape that is similar to the design of the Galaxy Nexus. The connection of the device is HSPA and not HSPA+.
The Samsung Galaxy S Advance has not yet reached the Americans. However, that is not a remote possibility because it has already made the FCC rounds. Although a slight refresh of the Galaxy S is not really needed with the relationship of the United States to other subsidized handsets, its cheaper price will be significant compared to the Galaxy S2 or other high end phones with almost the same features. Still, consumers are waiting if the Galaxy S Advance of Samsung will reach the U.S. market.
