Samsung and SK Telecom have unveiled a new budget-friendly smartphone, the Galaxy Wide 2, in South Korea. The phone succeeds last year’s Galaxy Wide, and comes with a newer version of Android as well as a slightly larger capacity battery. The device can be purchased through SK Telecom for KRW 297,000 (approx. $266). However, local users can get it for as low as KRW 100,000 (approx. $89) after discounts. 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.
