Samsung unveils Galaxy Wide with 5.5-inch display, 13MP camera

Samsung has unveiled a new Galaxy-branded smartphone. Dubbed Galaxy Wide, the device is powered by Snapdragon 410 SoC with quad-core 1.2GHz processor, and sports a 5.5-inch HD display.

The handset comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable internal memory, and packs in a 3,000mAh removable battery. The phone features a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front shooter. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, and also supports terrestrial digital multimedia broadcasting (T-DMB).

The handset carries a model number of SM-G600S, which is similar to what the Galaxy On7carries. A quick comparison reveals that most of the key specs of the devices are the same too, so it’s possible that the Wide is a re-branded variant of the On7.

Anyway, the Galaxy Wide carries a tag of KRW 319,000 (around $275). The phone will be available for purchase in the company’s home country of South Korea in a couple of weeks from now. There’s currently no word on if and when it’ll land in other markets worldwide.
