Entry-level Samsung Galaxy Fame is announced with 1GHz processor and Android 4.1
Here's a new smartphone that is shaping up like a decent entry-level Android offering. It is known as the Samsung Galaxy Fame and it was just announced officially after being leaked on the web several times already. Dressed in pearl white or metallic blue, the handset comes with unimpressive, yet passable hardware specs and Android 4.1 with Samsung's nature-inspired interface on top, so all the device now needs is a reasonable price tag.

How much the Samsung Galaxy Fame will cost, however, isn't yet known. What we do know, on the other hand, is that it has a 3.5-inch HVGA TFT screen, 512MB of RAM, and a 1GHz processor of unspecified make and model. There's a 5MP auto-focus camera on its back paired with an LED flash, and a front-facing camera is located above its screen. Other notable specs include a smallish 1,300mAh battery and measly 4GB of storage, which can be expanded with the use of a microSD card. The handset weighs 120 grams, has a thickness of 11,6 millimeters, and will come in NFC flavor as well.

Out of the box, the Samsung Galaxy Fame will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a handful of UI tweaks added, courtesy of the smartphone's maker. These include motion gestures, such as a shake to refresh information displayed on all active widgets and flipping the device face-down in order to mute an incoming call. 

And that's the Samsung Galaxy Fame in a nutshell. Again, the smartphone won't impress any power users, or even anyone who has ever handled an Android mid-range device, but it could be an all-around nice handset for customers on a budget, as long as it gets the right price tag stuck to it. We don't yet know when the Samsung Galaxy Fame will hit the shelves, but we suppose that it will be on display later this month at MWC.

Everything is good...but i want to know the screen resolution it is sporting.
All those good points will go down the drain if the resolution is below 800X640 or something like that.
My niece has a Galaxy Y, and boy, with that pixel density it's a pain.
But this should be a good phone...i mean not even some of the high end device comes with 4.1 out of the box.

I had a chance to play with a Galaxy Y (800mhz cpu, 200MB something ram) and it was very smooth. Save for the crappy screen, I'd say I'll recommend it to budget buyers. I'm pretty sure this Galaxy Fame will be an even better budget smartphone.

Only think missing in galaxy ace or y was a good UI.....with nature UX this device should be a good low end device...

.Samsung really sucks when it comes to updates!

I'm still using my very first Android mobile.
The Samsung Galaxy W i8150

the Galaxy W has a little better specs than this...
1.4GHz processor
3.8inch display
1500mAh battery

Samsung released this phone with Jelly Bean and yet SGW is still in Gingerbread.
whadaheck Samsung!

I dislike the names that phone manufacturers are coming up with. They are really confusing and misleading. I think they are picking those names on purpose.

Why are all the phones Galaxies now? So they feel like they have a Galaxy with higher end specs at a lower price tag. A Galaxy will always be a Galaxy right?

Same with Sony Z / ZL. Etc....
