Meet one of Samsung's first Snapdragon 410-powered smartphones: the SM-G5309W

Meet one of Samsung's first Snapdragon 410-powered smartphones: the SM-G5309W
Samsung is seemingly getting ready to release a 5-inch Android smartphone that’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 processor. The smartphone is the SM-G5309W, and we can take a pretty good look at it thanks to the fact that it’s been approved by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center.

There’s nothing unusual about the design of the SM-G5309W - it’s just a classic Samsung Android handset. It’s not a high-end device by any means, and you could tell that just by learning that its 5-inch screen has a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Other features include Android 4.4 KitKat, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera with flash, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage space, and microSD card support. Apparently, the SM-G5309W comes with a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 chipset (including an Adreno 306 GPU). Samsung has yet to officially announce any smartphones that use the Snapdragon 410 processor - which, by the way, is 64-bit-capable.

While the SM-G5309W is made for China - where it could be available to buy in the near future - variations of it may reach other markets. We'll let you know when (and if) that happens.

Based on the nondescript design, the generic Samsung plastic, is this phone the unofficial smart phone for Chinese Anonymous members?

Chinese phones are all-out going 720p on their mid/low-ends and SAMSUNG is still stuck with qHD. Times are a-changing SAMSUNG, it's time to get out of your comfort zone every once in a while

What's the difference between the Snapdragon 400 and 410? Can anyone tell me?

The 410 is rushed out, noticeably faster, 64-bit version of 400.

Do they make ugly low end phones intentionally? Don't they know that low end is starting to be more and more competitive? Ffs.
