Samsung and SK Telecom have unveiled a new budget-friendly smartphone, the Galaxy Wide 2, in South Korea.

The phone hasn’t been listed on Samsung’s website yet.

The Galaxy Wide 2 (SM-J727S) features a 5.5-inch HD LCD display with 2.5D curved glass protection, a 13-megapixel primary camera with F1.9 aperture, a 5-megapixel secondary camera, a 1.6GHz 64-bit octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. The device runs Android 7.0 Nougat and comes packed with a 3,300 mAh battery. The Galaxy Wide was reportedly the best-selling budget smartphone last year on SK Telecom’s network.
