Samsung Galaxy S Advance announced at RM1,299

The Samsung Galaxy S Advance is finally announced in Malaysia with the retail price tag of RM1,299. This model comes right between the Galaxy W and the Samsung Galaxy S II.

The Galaxy S Advance comes with a slightly curved 4.0″ Super AMOLED screen that pushes 800×480 pixels resolution and a dual-core 1.0GHz processor with 768MB RAM. It comes with a 5MP main camera with assisted flash and a front facing 1.3MP camera. Although it looks like a mini Galaxy Nexus, the 5MP shooter is only capable of shooting 720p HD videos.

Juicing up the device is a 1,500mAh battery and internally the Galaxy S Advance runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The version that’s coming to Malaysia comes with 8GB of storage which is expandable via microSD up to 32GB.

This is probably the last model to be introduced before the unveiling of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy model next month, which we’re hoping is the Galaxy S III. If not, we might be seeing another stop gap model in the form of i9300 with a high density display.
