The Samsung Galaxy Win is allegedly on its way, rocking a quad-core processor, Android Jelly Bean and two SIM cards.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones is hugely popular worldwide due to its wide range of options, from low/mid-range handsets to high-end powerhouses.
The Samsung Galaxy Win is not yet official, but it popped up on a Vietnamese retailer's website, listing a May release date. According to the listing, the Galaxy Win I8552 is a new Android smartphone boasting a big 4.7-inch Super AMOLED touch screen.
The smartphone packs a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor and Adreno 203 GOU under the hood, allowing users to play games or browse the Web smoothly. Other purported features of the Samsung Galaxy Win include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash, a VGA front camera, a micro SD card slot for expandable memory of up to 32GB, and a 2,000mAh battery juicing things up. In terms of connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy Win handset supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0. It doesn't have Near Field Communication (NFC) support.
The Samsung Galaxy Win reportedly rocks Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, one of the latest versions of Android. The handset is also dual-SIM, which is not hugely popular in the U.S. but is quite appreciated in the developing world and other international markets. A dual-SIM option may come in handy for keeping work and personal life separate, having another SIM when traveling abroad, and other such scenarios.
As previously mentioned, Samsung has yet to confirm this smartphone and it's difficult to say at this point in what markets the handset will make its debut. If it does reach more familiar shores, however, the Samsung Galaxy Win will likely not be a dual-SIM version.
Samsung seems to be seizing the market with several lower and mid-range Galaxy Android smartphones, but not all of those handsets make it worldwide. According to the Vietnamese retailer, the Samsung Galaxy Win will become available in late May 2013. It makes no mention of price, but the alleged specs suggest the new Android Jelly Bean smartphone will be a mid-range, affordable handset.
