Entry-level Samsung Galaxy Fame is announced with 1GHz processor and Android 4.1

Samsung Galaxy announced
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.
