Samsung has launched another mid-range device named as Galaxy Wide 3 in South Korea as successor to the Galaxy Wide 2 that made its debut last year. The smartphone is brought for the company’s home market in collaboration with SK Telecom.
Galaxy Wide 3 – Features
Although we’ve seen the recent devices of Samsung J-series to possess the trendy feature of Infinity Display but this one features a 5.5-inch HD display with screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
The Galaxy Wide 3 is powered by an unspecified 1.6GHz octa-core processor along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage supported by a dedicated microSD card slot to expand the memory by up to 400GB.
The smartphone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo OS out of the box with the company’s own custom user interface on top. Connectivity options on the device include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS/ GLONASS. We have a 3,300mAh battery unit to keep the lights on for one day of moderate use.
On the camera front, Samsung has included a 13MP single camera on the rear with an LED flash, f/1.7 aperture and 1080p video recording. The front side of the device is also equipped with the same 13MP lens with f/1.9 aperture. Moreover, the front camera is also capable of face recognition.
Pricing and Availability
As said earlier, the Galaxy Wide 3 is made available in South Korea with two color options to choose from Silver and Black with price tag of KRW 297,000 (~$275, PKR 31,800). The SK Telecom says that the device is targeting those who are over 40s and want to have a larger screen phone for a smaller price tag.
