Almost missed this. Samsung unveiled a new Android smartphone Galaxy R, which as far as we can tell is identical to the Galaxy Z model. That said, we’re talking about a device which sits somewhere between the original Galaxy S and Galaxy S II, rocking a 4.2-inch WVGA touchscreen and 5-megapixel camera. In addition, this baby also comes with HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, dual-core processor, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, GPS, Bluetooth, 8GB of built-in memory which is further expandable with microSD cards. What’s more, there are some pre-installed apps made to sing along Samsung’s web-based service Kies Air, allowing over-the-air syncing and even the “find my mobile” capability.
The Samsung Galaxy R will be released in the UK at the end of July, and we guess the launch in other countries across the Europe will follow shortly afterwards. British carriers will most likely offer it for free with contracts starting at 30 GBP a month or so.
