Samsung SM-S780L is a new and mysterious 720p Android smartphone
Once flagships that made their manufacturers proud, 720p smartphones are now mid-end devices. But that’s not a bad thing, since they don’t cost too much, while still offering a nice user experience. That’s probably what Samsung has in mind for the new SM-S780L: to provide decent features at a decent price.

The S780L is an unannounced smartphone that’s all but confirmed, as its User Agent profile appeared over at Samsung’s website. The handset runs Android, and has a 720 x 1280 pixels display of unknown size. It received a Wi-Fi certification a couple of days ago, this allowing us to see that it features dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac.

Blog of Mobile reports that the SM-S780L could be released by LG U+ (South Korea’s third largest mobile carrier). Since LG U+ only offers CDMA and LTE services, and the SM-S780L also seems to have W-CDMA and GSM connectivity, the handset might reach international markets as well.

Samsung may announce the SM-S780L next month - at, or before MWC 2014, when the company could also introduce the new Galaxy S5 flagship. Another upcoming Samsung smartphone that should be announced soon is the Galaxy Note 3 Neo (SM-N750 / SM-N755). Maybe we’ll see all of them at the same time? We’ll let you know.

Hmm... Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Neo? Very doubtful, but Premier 2? WHATEVER. Samsung should stop producing so much phones! Make less phones, make them worldwide, update old models to atleast 4.2.2 , DON'T FLOOD THE MARKET. I am getting sick of them right nao.

Samsung non-flagship phones aren't mysterious. I mean... even when they're out, most of us won't know about them anyway. xD

"of unknown display size" That is what bothers me. And what cpu is going to push those pixels? I'm certain it's going to be underpowered.
