IMCC has announced the Samsung Galaxy W for an affordable RM999 in Malaysia. The Galaxy W is a mid-tier device in their new naming convention and is actually a replacement for their current Samsung Galaxy Ace.
Despite being a mid-tier device, the Galaxy W is no slouch as it runs on a single core 1.4GHz processor and it has Android 2.3 Gingerbread installed. The front has a larger 3.7″ S-LCD display with 800×480 resolution and internally comes with 2GB storage and 512MB of RAM. For imaging, it has a 5MP camera with assisted flash that’s capable of shooting 720p HD videos. There’s also a VGA camera at the front for video calls. They have also thrown in a rather generous 1500mAh battery as well.
For RM999, the Galaxy W packs quite a lot for less which puts other expensive rivals to shame. Seems like Samsung is able to give HTC a run for their money.
