After the release of Samsung Galaxy Note and Mega, which are both considerably enormous, Samsung introduces their latest 7-inch Smartphone in Korea. This is the biggest Android phone so far, which is not a flagship device in any ways. Instead, it is a tab-phab-phonblet which is capable of making cellular calls. This will be available in South Korea soon.
The Samsung Galaxy W has a 7-inch HD screen, comprises with 16:9 aspect ratio and packed with 1280 x 720 resolution. It also powered with 1.2GHz Quad-Core Processor and 1.5GB of RAM. The 16GB expandable storage space will be enough to store your favorite media files. It supports microSD and the 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-Megapixel front-facing camera is best for taking photos. It supports LTE-A network connectivity for the upcoming 4G speeds and it measures 191.8 x 99.6 x 8.8 mm weighing 245g. The Galaxy W is powered by a robust 3200mAh battery.
However, even if Android will soon release their latest Android OS, this colossal handset will only run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on board. And it is still unclear if Samsung will release an Android Kitkat build. Also, Samsung will soon release a variety of new software such as the split-screen and multi-windows feature that are commonly seen in Galaxy Note but without stylus. This is not the first edge that we’ve seen so far, but it is more comfy than its competitors like Asus Fonepad 7 and HP VoiceTab.
This Galaxy W phablet will cost 499,400 won in South Korea or around $490. Available colors will be in black, white and red with the same faux leather back as the Note 3. But it is still uncertain if the Samsung Galaxy W will be available in the market aside from South Korea later this year.
