The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a mid-range smartphone which aims to target consumers who are interested in a well specified mid-range handset. However, the competition is fierce as the gap between both high-end and mid-range and mid-range and budget handsets shrinks nearer together.
As a result, both high end smartphones like the new Sony Xperia Z and budget handsets like the new Nokia 510 will be in direct competition with the Galaxy Fame, but we expect the Fame to perform well - especially as its part of the Samsung Galaxy range.
The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a standard 3G smartphone – meaning it won’t work at faster 3G speeds on Three’s “Ultrafast” network. It's worthy to note that it comes with a higher specification than its stablemate – the Samsung Galaxy Young - so many will prefer the Fame over the Galaxy Young.
The Galaxy Fame ( pictured above ) looks a decently specified Android smartphone available in either Metallic Blue or Pearl White. The operating system weighs in at Android 4.1 Jelly Bean whilst it powered by a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor supported by 512MB RAM and 4GB of on-board memory.
The specification continues with a 3.5” HVGA touchscreen display, a 5 mega-pixel camera with auto-focus, Samsung motion features ( shake and turnover functions ) and NFC with S Beam sharing.
The real information that’s missing is exactly when the Samsung Galaxy Fame will be ready to buy and at what price. Of course, 3G will be aiming to complete our Samsung Galaxy Fame Review at the earliest opportunity.
Sylvia Chind, Head of Devices at Three said, “The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a welcome addition to Three. Complemented by our award winning network, browsing the internet, using apps like YouTube or sharing music, photos and videos on the go, this innovative smartphone fits your needs perfectly.”
