Samsung reveals the Galaxy Young 2 aimed at kids



Samsung has announced a slew of low-end/midrange devices today, we’ve seen the Galaxy Ace 4, Core II and Star 2 and here comes the Galaxy Young 2. A phone specifically designed for people willing to have a basic, yet more or less decent complete bang for a buck Android experience.

The stylish Galaxy Young 2 is an ideal smartphone for the user who focus on essential features and usability

The Galaxy Young 2 (SM-G130H) is by far not the typical juggernaut type of a phone that you’d expect from Samsung with regards to the spec sheet, nor will it appeal to Android lovers or the average tech enthusiast. – It features a rather mediocre 3.5-inch (9.4 cm) HVGA TFT display with a single core SoC clocked at 1.0Ghz (likely an old Snapdragon S1/S2) backed by 512MB of RAM. The whole package measures 109.8 x 59.9 x 11.8mm and weighs 108 grams.


There’s also a fixed focus 3MP camera and 4GB of internal memory (expandable to 32GB) while on software side you’ll be getting TouchWiz Essence (and S Apps) on top of Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Surprisingly Samsung has also included eight Gameloft titles for the young users.

Standard connectivity features include BT 4.0, WiFi b/g/n, GPS and GLONASS while a 1300mAh battery backs it all. The Galaxy Young 2 will be compatible with GSM/GRPS/EDGE and HSPA+ networks around the world, it will be made available in White or Iris Charcoal. Prices have yet to be announced but the thing will hit shelves as early as next month.
