Watch out, Apple, as Samsung will soon introduce its new golden boy
Samsung just isn't stoppable this year. First, it launched the Galaxy S III - a real beast of a phone. Then came the Note II, which is like a GS III, but bigger. (Yes, we know it has a stylus.) And now, it looks like Sammy is at it again, as a fresh rumor suggests that the company will soon be announcing a brand new phone, codenamed "Golden".

Now, the Golden might not be as exciting as the above-mentioned devices, as SamMobile reports that it's going to be more of a mid-range model. Currently, almost nothing is known about the device, except for its alleged model number - GT-I8190, and that it'll probably feature a 5-megapixel camera and will come in two colors - Ceramic White (that's the Galaxy S III white) and Metallic Blue (that's not the Galaxy S III blue). The anonymous source believes that this Android smartphone is going to launch in mid-November.

We'd also like to add a little bit of speculation to the story and say that it will probably come with Android 4.0 or 4.1 out of the box, along with a light version of the latest TouchWiz UI.

To us, this sounds like the first device that might bring Samsung's new design language to the more affordable ranges of the manufacturer. Will Samsung's new golden boy prove to be a chick-magnet? It remains to be seen...

Mid range is not Apple's playground unfortunately. To compete with Apple SS must work more closely with Google and not waste their resources on things like S-Voice or new browser or digital distribution.

I agree with you, they should seek to improve what already out there, but it seems to me there also trying to come into the software business but they are not ready.

A sureshot winner in the mid-range segment like the Galaxy Ace or Glaxy W. Samsung is really reaching out to all the customers. Good job Sammy!
