Galaxy M to offer entry level Super AMOLED screen

We recently told you about the new Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus as the company continue to expand their smartphone range. While many will be waiting for the Galaxy S3 today we can tell you about the Galaxy M, which will offer an entry level Super AMOLED screen.

The handset may not set the world on fire but it will bring Samsung’s great Super AMOLED screen technology to consumers on a tighter budget. According to FoneHome the handset is reminiscent of the Omnia 7, and at 9.9mm thick and weighing 122 grams is also similar to the Wave 3.

This handsets big selling point will be the nice 4-inch Super AMOLED display that was first seen on the original Galaxy S. The handset is powered by a 1GHz single core processor, which for a mid-range handset is still good. The device comes with 4GB of on-board storage, and a reasonable three megapixel camera.

While many higher specified smartphones are looking forward to get Android Ice cream Sandwich, the Galaxy M will have to make do with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. For the time being it is not known what regions will be getting the Galaxy M and for how much.

But for now the new smartphone is launching in the company’s homeland South Korea, which gets the device from today. Price wise at current exchange rates it works out at around $500/£320, but could come down if it does launch in these regions. Samsung are certainly beginning to flood the market with a variety of handsets, which ultimately means more choice for consumers.
