Description

Samsung Galaxy Pocket is a smartphone for budget-conscious consumers offering an 832MHz single-core processor and a 2.8-inch display with QVGA resolution. On its back it has a really basic fixed focus camera of 2 megapixels, and a 1,200mAh battery resides under its back cover. You also get a 3.6Mbps 3G radio, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, and 3 gigabytes of on-board storage. All of that is confined inside of a body with a thickness of 12 millimeters. The device itself tips the scale at the respectable 97 grams. In terms of software, the smartphone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread enhanced with goodies like the usual set of Google applications, Samsung's ChatON service, and, of course, the TouchWiz user interface.
