Three UK announced on their website that they will soon be carrying the Samsung Galaxy Fame. This model was recently announced by Samsung and is expected to hit the market next month. The addition of this device on Three gives consumers more budget friendly models to choose from.
Samsung Galaxy Fame Technical Specifications
- Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
- 3.5” HVGA display
- 1.0 GHz processor
- 512MB RAM
- Up to 3GB usable memory
- 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash
- Pearl White and Metallic Blue
- Notification light
- Samsung Motion Features (Shake to update, Turn over to mute/pause).
- VGA front camera
- NFC with S Beam sharing
- 1300mAh battery
This model looks like a smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 on the outside but the inside tells a different story. While the flagship model comes with excellent specifications the Galaxy Fame has low end specs. This device is suited for anyone who just wants a phone that they can use every day yet comes with a few extra features. Its small footprint makes it ideal as a backup phone.
One thing we noticed is that it comes with NFC and S Beam sharing which should come in quite handy. This device works on a standard 3G connection which means it won’t be able to take advantage of Three’s fast network.
One other device that we could compare this to is the Samsung Galaxy Y. The Galaxy Y has a lower specification when compared to this model though so if given a chance to choose between the two you should definitely go with the Galaxy Fame.
According to Sylvia Chind, Head of Devices at Three, “The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a welcome addition to Three. Complemented by our award winning network, browsing the internet, using apps like YouTube or sharing music, photos and videos on the go, this innovative smartphone fits your needs perfectly”.
No announcements were made as to how much this will cost or when it will be released. We are guessing though that it will come free on most plans or be priced affordably when purchased outright.
