Android handsets with 720p were once judged top-notch back in 2012 when manufacturers were still offering devices with 480p displays. Fast forward two years ahead and devices sporting 720p displays are now barely even considered mid-range, that’s generally not a bad choice for people with a restricted budget willing to purchase an affordable device and that’s exactly where manufacturers like Samsung are cashing in.
The South Korean giant will apparently be launching a set of mid range device next month at MWC2014 and one of those devices was spotted online via its user agent along with details from its Wi-Fi certification a couple of days back.
The full spec sheet isn’t known but we know for sure that it’ll carry a resolution of 720×1280 pixels and feature dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac connectivity. A report also suggests that the handset will probably be exclusive to the South Korean market via LG U+ (South Korea’s largest carrier).
The device is likely undergoing testing but whether it’ll get announced at MWC is still unclear although the company could still chose to host a separate event, like it did for most of its high end device.
