Description

Here's a new smartphone that is shaping up like a decent entry-level Android offering. It is known as the Samsung Galaxy Fame. 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. 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.
