Samsung Galaxy S Advance surfaces: dual-core processor, curved a la Nexus
A brand new addition to the Samsung Galaxy S lineup has surfaced just weeks before MWC - the Samsung Galaxy S Advance, aka the Samsung GT-i9070, is the first handset in the Galaxy S I family to come with a dual-core processor. It’s also redesigned a la Samsung Galaxy Nexus, that is with a curved screen.

The Galaxy S Advance first appeared in benchmarks and in certification agencies websites last month, but the actual name was not known, only the model number GT-i9070.

The handset is expected to land in China, and other markets as well, boasting a 4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, a 1GHz ST-Ericsson NOVATHOR U8500 dual-core processor, a 5MP rear snapper shooting 720p videos, a front-facing camera, and 6GB of internal memory. Software-wise, the Galaxy S Advance will feature Gingerbread 2.3.6 on release, but the dual-core processor hints that it should be ICS-eligible. It comes with a 1500mAh battery.

The handset seems to be gearing up for release at MWC in Barcelona at the end of February, and here’s to hoping that it’s not too expensive and it has a solid chance at capturing the hearts of mid-range Android seekers. Let us know whether you like it in the comments below!

Hey there! Are you aware that this is the exact description of the all-beloved iPhone 4S?

Yup.

The point here is, that if this thing
a) really has 512Mb of RAM
b) will get Android 4.0 update later

A lot of people will be royally p*ssed off. Because that was the exact reason (only 512Mb of RAM) that Samsung used as an excuse NOT to update the rest of the SGS family to ICS.

No. What matters is not the amount of RAM - but the amount of ROM on a phone. Both the GS1 and the Nexus S have 512MB of Ram. But the GS1 isn't officially upgraded to ICS - while the Nexus S is.

I think you have misunderstood something. Even he low-end SGS has an 8Gb internal memory. It is NOT the case of ROM amount, there's PLENTY of that to play with. (Well, it is not really the amount of RAM either really, that is just the lame excuse Samsung gave.)
