In case you aren’t necessarily looking for a flagship Samsung handset this year, you can always go with something more affordable from the same smartphone maker such as the Galaxy Pop, which is now available in orange in South Korea.
The handset can also be purchased in white and grey, and in case it looks familiar that’s because the Galaxy Pop is the equivalent of the Galaxy Premier that’s already available in other markets.
However, the Galaxy Pop is not just a rebranded Galaxy Premier, as it offers an improved processor, 1.4GHz quad-core CPU compared to the Premier’s dual-core processor. Other specs and features include a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED Display, 8/16GB of memory, 8-megapixel camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, NFC, 2100mAh battery and Android 4.1.2 with TouchWiz on top.
The phone retails for 700,000 in the region (flip cover included,) or around $642. That's the full off-contract price for the device, so expect it to be cheaper when purchased with a contract from the local carriers that will pick it up.
Anyone interested in the orange Galaxy Pop?
