Samsung Galaxy W out now for RM999

Posted:  October 26, 2011   By:    22 comments   

UPDATE: Galaxy W is bundled by Celcom from RM328. U Mobile to offer as well in early December.

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.

Check out demo videos after the break.

for RM1k, i'd still probably try to get the nexus S.


    Nexus S is older, slower and still selling for RM2K!!!


      Dude, recently the cheapest Nexus S is just selling for rm1050. I just bought one. Btw though Nexus S is slower in clocked speed, it's most probably the 2nd devidce to get icecream sanwich after the Galaxy Nexus. Imho it still has an advantage


        bro leaf mind to tell me where u bot ur Nexus S? i want to get one also


          I have a brand new set Nexus S I9023 (gray color) from Maxis plan will get the stock next week and would like to sell RM1350 if you buy 2 RM1150 each, if you interested can email to me 012-3121 608


Its gonna be a bestseller

los copes

And Nokia is coming out with scrappy n pricey model….


Good challenger for Xperia Neo in the price range


nice phone within my budget,but i will get it after 2-3mth… shd b rm800-850 bcos samsung handset price drop fast,wont buy it at rrp when launch.look at galaxy s2 back to june selling 2099,4 mth later selling 1700 🙂


    Careful about the sgs2. Newer batch is cheaper yes, but It's not exynos core instead they used TI's core. I-GT9100G. the original sgs2's code is I-GT9100.


      Is there any chance of getting the exynos version anymore? Sometime in next year?

      Why did they change to TI?


the nexus S is only around RM1k if you know where to look. Who ask you to buy 1 year old phone+ at RRP?

Who says Nexus S is slower? Just cos the Galaxy W has +0.4ghz doesnt proof anything.The nexus S has SGX540> Adreno 205 on the W.

Also, Nexus S will get ICS4.0 with better optimized android code and interface while GalaxyW will just play around with your touchwiz.

Ace was a great mid level phone and with the W, it looked like everything been upgraded. It's a great option for those of us who find the S2 too big and don't want an iPhone. Btw, Ace has one of the best 5MP snapper around, putting many more expensive device to shame. Here is hoping it's still great or better. The sequel lost the Gorilla Glass though

John Ong

Hmm, wonder if it will comes with an extra white back panel too…

this phone will blow the HTC wildfire S away – priced just RM 100 more than the wildfire with a lot better specs!


Is this phone can perform video call with normal Telco carrier without using software like Skype or Fring.

    ramli ms

    yes it can video call with normal telco


samsung galaxy w is my love at first sight among any other samsung galaxy series..any comment guys about this model?

    Malcolm Lim

    the phone is awesome. worth every penny paid. check out the lowyat forum thread with lots of discussion.

Despite no Gorilla Glass indicated, I hope someone can put it to the test since it's a great budget smartphone which Apple lacks.

Hope that glass better be Asahi's Dragontrail rather than just ordinary scratch-resistant glass.
