Samsung has announced its latest gigantic smartphone in South Korea today. This newly introduced smartphone is dubbed as Samsung Galaxy W, and it features a large 7-inch HD display. It should not be confused with the company’s 3.7-inch Galaxy W, which was released in 2011.
Likely to be available on SK Telecom, the smartphone was first spotted at TENNA in China and later sighted in leaked promotional poster of Korean telecom operator SK Telecom. Powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, the smartphone has been introduced by Samsung probably with an aim to compete with the likes of gigantic Asus Fonepad and HP VoiceTab, which are more like tablets.
Among the other features, the Samsung Galaxy W has 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It operates on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and includes 3200 mAh battery, LTE-A support as well as usual connectivity options.
According to Samsung, it will be available in Red, White and Black colour options and will go on sale for 499,400 won ($487). There is no word on the release in other markets outside South Korea, but we’re hoping that it will be release in China at least.
