Two New Android Smartphones From Samsung - The GALAXY Young And GALAXY Fame

Both the devices feature Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and are aimed at budget price brackets.

 

Two new smartphones were added today to Samsung extensive line-up of Android devices. The new devices called the GALAXY Young and GALAXY Fame would most likely be budget devices, albeit with design similar to the GALAXY S III.

First up is the GALAXY Young which features the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS running on a 1 GHz processor coupled with 768 MB of RAM. It has a 3.27-inch LCD display with a pixel dimension of 320x480. For storage, it has 4 GB of internal memory with an expandable micro-SD card slot. For imaging, it has a 3 MP rear camera and VGA front camera.
