Samsung takes the wraps off the Galaxy Wide in South Korea


Last updated: July 5th, 2016 at 07:14 UTC+02:00

Samsung has today taken the wraps off a new smartphone that will launch exclusively on SK Telecom in South Korea later this month. The handset has been named the Galaxy Wide and carries the model number SM-G600S, which is almost identical to the identification credentials that the Galaxy On7 bears, with the only difference being the addition of the ‘S’ at the very end of the tag. This leads us to believe that the Galaxy Wide is actually a rebranded, slightly souped-up variant of the Galaxy On7 that has been optimized for the carrier bands operating in Samsung’s home country.

With regards to internals, the Galaxy Wide sports a 5.5-inch TFT display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter and a 3,000mAh removable Li-Ion battery. The handset will ship running the latest build of Marshmallow, skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface. However, things start to get interesting when you delve into the connectivity options the device offers as it sports a T-DMB chip, which permits users to tune into digital terrestrial broadcasting in the region.

The Galaxy Wide will carry a price tag of 319,000 Korean Won ($276) when it hits the shelves in South Korea in a couple of weeks time.
