Samsung Galaxy W, Y, Y Pro and M Pro appear

New Samsung Galaxy range

Samsung has announced the launch of four new phones in its Galaxy range, the W, Y, Y Pro and M Pro.

Samsung has announced the launch of four new phones in its Galaxy range, the W, Y, Y Pro and M Pro.

All four devices are Android smartphones and run the latest – at the time of writing – version, 2.3 Gingerbread.

The largest of the new devices is the Galaxy W. This includes a full 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen and a powerful 1.4GHz single core processor.

  • 1.4GHz processor
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS
  • 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 5Mp camera
  • HSDPA and wi-fi connectivity

The next is the Galaxy Y, which again is a full touchscreen device but this model is much smaller and only has a 3-inch capacitive touchscreen. The Y also has a weaker 883MHz processor and fairly basic 2Mp camera – suggesting it will be a cheaper handset.

Samsung also revealed two new Android smartphones sporting Qwerty keypads. The first is similar to the Y, but with a slightly higher spec camera at 3.2Mp and a smaller screen to accommodate the full Qwerty keypad.

The final of the four handsets released is the M Pro. This seems to be a supercharged version of the Y Pro, with a 1GHz processor and a 5Mp camera, as well as a slightly larger, higher resolution touchscreen.

So far there’s no news on price, network availability or when each device will be reaching the UK – although we would expect it to be before the end of the year. We hope to get a closer look at the handsets next week at the IFA technology show in Berlin and bring you back our first impressions.
