A new handset has been spotted passing though certification in China, the Samsung GT-I8262D, and we have some technical details about this new handset.
Based on the information provided, the handset will only be a sporting a single-core CPU clocked up to 1GHz, which suggests this phone could be gunning for a mid-range price tag. Interestingly it will feature a larger display than previous mid-range Samsung handsets, with a 4.3inch, 800×480 pixel TFT screen.
The GT-I8262D will also feature a 5 megapixel camera, is expected to ship with Jelly Bean 4.1, and has all the usual 3G network, Wi-fi and Bluetooth functionality you'd expect. Like previous Samsung phones it will also have support for microSD cards with up to 32GB of additional memory. The handset will weigh in at a hefty 142.5 grams, which is quite a bit heavier than any predecessors. We’re also looking at dimensions of 128.9mm × 68.16mm × 10.9mm, which again is quite a bit larger than Samsung's currently selections of mid-range phones.
Whilst it’s not quite clear where about this phone will sit in the Samsung line-up yet, based on its size and hardware it could very well be a successor to the Galaxy Ace series.
