Samsung today revealed a new smartphone that will release specifically through SK telecom to cater to the South Korean market. The device dubbed as Galaxy Wide appears to be quite similar to the Galaxy on7 with the additional S at the end of the serial number (SM-G600S) being the only prominent difference.
This leads us to believe that Samsung might have just tweaked the Galaxy on7 and come up with the Galaxy Wide which would better suited to the carrier brands exclusive to South Korea. In terms of features the phone has 5.5 inch TFT display and comes with 1.2 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of internal storage which can be expanded.
It has a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera with a 3000mAH removable Li-Ion battery. The phone runs on Marshmallow along with the TouchWiz user interface by Samsung. The unique thing about the handset is the fact that it lets you tune into digital terrestrial broadcasting being carried out in the region through a T-DMB chip.
You will be able to buy the Galaxy Wide for 319000 Korean Won, approximately $276 when it launches in a couple of weeks. Samsung is flooding the market with smartphones tweaking few features here and there and coming up with unique names for them.
This might not be a very successful move by the Korean giant as flooding the market wont solve any financial problems for them and the main culprit is the Chinese smartphone makers who are offering much better phones with half the price.
