Samsung Galaxy Win official for other markets - 4.7" display and quad-core Snapdragon 200

Samsung Galaxy Win official for other markets - 4.7
The leaked Samsung Galaxy Win is official now for places besides China, and its rumored specs got confirmed by the company for realsies, namely a 4.7″ 480 x 800 LCD display, 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 5 MP rear camera, VGA up front, 8 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot, and a decent 2000 mAh battery. Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean rounds up the pretty offering.

As for design, you can see for yourself in the slideshow below, but don't expect that Samsung will stray away from the already globally recognizable Galaxy line wrappings - we have the feeling we've seen the Galaxy Win already in more than one or two reincarnations.

Still, "depending on the markets, the GALAXY Win will be available in two different versions – Single SIM or Dual SIM, and available in two different colors – Ceramic White and Titan Gray," so there's that, but no pricing or launch regions and dates yet.

What is best about this phone? It is the same dull design of the galaxy line.

let me guess.. you have a low end smartphone, am I right? cause obviously if you have owned at least a galaxy s2, you wouldn't be amazed at this specs.

It must be really easy for Samsung to design phones it seems. Use the same s3 design, change the size a bit here and there, throw in specs that fits the target price range and they made a 'new' phone. I think they might have no problems at all making a new model every 2 days. It's like playing Lego.

Would rather prefer a weaker dual core cpu but with a 720p screen resolution.

That's the thing, the processor is already quite weak. Four cores, sure, but all are Cortex-A5, so not very powerful. I shudder to think how the bloated and heavy TouchWiz will perform on this one. xD

WTF is happening to you wendy? Last time I saw you, you always defended Apple. Now you praise Samsung. You are not a fanboy anymore? That's good.

Same design pattern.. Its like Samsung is playing it safe...their phones have been selling well so there's no need for them to spice up the design

I dont get why Samsung is floading the market with all the mid range phones ,
They should be like apple and only make GS and GNote
Because a high end device this year would be mid range next year !

my guess is that they are trying to appeal to those who can't AFFORD the S4, S3 or Note2? it's not that hard to figure out....everybody is not rolling in money...last time I checked our economy is jacked up....

One could always go for an old flagship , like let's say a Galaxy S2 instead of all those mid range crap

that's the thing I don't get with some people getting excited about this phone. why buy this when you could get the galaxy s2 at a lower price and definitely smokes this POS in performance and design.

If they make a flagship and 2-3 midrange phones with different display size and guts that should be enough instead of releasing a phone every month. The Win was just announced and the GS4 Mini shouldn't be that far out now.

samsung need new designers ASAP !!

I mean,, Hyundai and Kia could produce good looking cars after they hired chief designer from BMW and General motor..

until what they are doing hurts their sales, why should they change? how much has the iphone changed over the years, and has it hurt them? Samsung has changed in the last five years, apple really hasn't. why mess with success??

Samsung shouldn't named it TouchWiz Nature UX and said "Inspired by Nature".
They should've name it TouchWiz Universe UX and say "Inspired by the Universe". xD

S II plus (4.3" screen) , Galaxy Grand (5" screen) and now this (4.7" screen)- all with almost the same specs. What's the point?

Glad to see people here are getting fed up with the same design asthetic that Samsung is doing. Same design, different screen size and innards. *yawn*
