Samsung has officially announced the launch of its Galaxy Wide 3 in South Korea. The smartphone is an entry-level device and is the successor to the Galaxy Wide 2 which launched a year ago. This device is exclusive to SK Telecom like the Galaxy Wide 2 in South Korea. It’s clear that the smartphone is targeting a very specific demographic and market segment. Did you know that the first edition of the Galaxy Wide and the Galaxy Wide 2 sold over 1.3 million units combined? That’s definitely an impressive number!
The smartphone consists of very basic hardware specifications with a large screen. This is the company’s attempt to bring a smartphone with a large screen at a pocket-friendly price to consumers. The Galaxy Wide 3 is certainly not meant for heavy users but rather those who want basic functionality and the bonus of a large screen size. The device boasts of a 5.5-inch HD display and is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core CPU and is coupled with 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy Wide 3 features 32GB of internal storage with support for storage expansion of up to 400GB via microSD card.
The smartphone has a decent 13MP rear-facing and a front-facing camera with a 3,300mAh battery and runs on Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box. The device will be on sale from tomorrow at 297,000 Won (approximately $275) and is available in two colour variants, black and silver.
