Entry-level Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus leaked
generous 2.8 inch screen with QVGA resolution (240 x 320) which translates into a pixel density of 143ppi. A single-core 832MHz processor powers the device and there is 3GB of native storage that can be expanded with the use of a 32GB capacity microSD card. The 2MP camera in back captures video in QVGA at 15fps. A 1200mAh battery powers up the whole shebang. While Android 2.3.6 comes on the GT-S5300, the fact that the GT-S5301 comes with Android 4.0.4 is a good indication that the Samsung Galaxy Pocket will eventually get an ICS update.
Besides the GT-5300 and the GT-S5301, there is the GT-S5302 which is the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos. This phone sports the exact same specs as the Samsung Galaxy Pocket except that it supports the use of dual-SIM cards. If past is prologue, we could see a faster processor and an improved battery on the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus. When the Korean manufacturer introduced the Samsung Galaxy S Pro last year, it was the same phone as the Samsung Galaxy S but with a faster processor and a higher capacity battery.

Too many phones which are more or less the same. Absolutely ridiculous.

it's a low end phone not mid range. mid range now days have the following:
3.5" - 4.3" screens
480 x 800 - 960 x 540 resolution
1ghz -1.2ghz single core or dual core processors
up to 1 gb ram
5mp cameras with 720 video capture
1500mAh - 1850mAh batteries

Samsung has rabbit genes... too many similar handsets with Android... Nokia will remain low end king... by the way Nokia should learn from Samsung approach... Samsung is targeting every band of consumers from a $50 phone to $800 phone... what do you have in mid range Nokia? you have Asha series (under INR 10000)... you have 920, 900 and probably 808 in some places over INR 20000

That's true, and that is where Samsung fails in pricing it's gadgets,, too pricey at times. alcatel ,ZTE and HUAWEI have competing smartphones at cheaper deals

Wouldn't they make more money following Apple's game plan? Produce one (maybe 2 for entry level) phones that are just super awesome instead of 50?
