The Samsung Galaxy W was launched as a mid-range phone years ago and was one of the first affordable android phones in the asian market. The brand is now looking at a revival in the region with South Korea’s SK Telecom releasing information on the Samsung Galaxy W. The new entry into the brand comes with a 7.0 inch screen with 720p resolution and is powered by a Quad-core 1.2 GHz Processor, expected to be the Snapdragon 400 with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB storage with microSD expansion. It’s also expected to come with a 8 megapixel shooter with a 2 megapixel front facing camera. However, the phone has been certified with Android 4.3, a rather odd occurrence given that a majority of Samsung’s phones are launching with Android 4.4 out of the box.
If the specifications look familiar, they should. These were the specifications of the 7 inch variant of the Galaxy Mega 2 which leaked recently. It seems compelling that this may in fact be same phone as the rumoured Galaxy Mega 2 as it seems the model number SM-T2558 seemingly follows the device. Given the trends with Samsung’s releases, we can expect that this model may, in fact, make it to Malaysia but only time will tell.
