Samsung recently introduced a new entry-level smartphone called the Samsung Galaxy V Plus. The device that was quietly posted into Samsung Malaysia’s official website, is a slightly upgraded version of the original Galaxy V.
In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy V Plus looks identical to the Galaxy V. It features a 4.0” TFT touch display with a resolution of 480 x 800 (WVGA). On the inside, Samsung has upgraded the 1.2GHz processor to a dual-core one, an improvement over the 1.2GHz single-core processor on the Galaxy V. The RAM remains at 512MB, paired with 4GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 64GB via microSD slot.
Everything else is the same as the Galaxy V – 3MP rear camera with flash, VGA front facing camera, 1500mAh removable battery, and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface.
The Samsung Galaxy V Plus is available in black or white, and while Samsung did not publish the retail price, since it’s almost identical with the Galaxy V, it should have a similar launch price of RM299.
