Samsung Galaxy R: UK release for the budget handset confirmed
Like the look of the incredibly powerful Samsung Galaxy S2 but can’t quite get the right funds together? Samsung has you covered. The tech giant has just confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy R has had a UK launch confirmed.
The handset fills the gap between the S2 and Sammie’s budget handsets, packing a strong – if middling – range of specs at a reasonable price. Among them is a 5-Meg camera and 8GB of storage, compared to the S2’s 8-meg cam and 16GB of storage.
Both handsets sport a large, 4.2-inch touchscreen, the Galaxy R’s display is of the Super Clear LCD variety, rather than the S2’s Super AMOLED. These changes in spec are just enough to mean that the Galaxy R should retail at around £200 less than its bigger brother.
There’s no word on an axact release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted. Will this be your next smartphone, or is the S2 worth the extra cash? Let us know your thoughts on the Gadget Helpline Twitter feed.
