Samsung Galaxy Lite specs out, phone delayed
The previously spotted Samsung Galaxy Lite will not be released in October, as previously expected, according to a recent Dialaphone report. Instead, Samsung has reportedly moved the release for the Anrdoid 1.5-powered device back to sometime in 2010, with the assumed reason being to allow the larger Galaxy to spend more time on the sales floor.
As expected, the new image show that Samsung has axed the lime green case for slightly lower key color options, including black and orange as well as white and green. Other specs include a 3-inch, 480x272 touchscreen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, and Wi-Fi. It will be preloaded with Samsung's TouchWiz interface, the Chrome Lite browser, and Google Apps along with Android Market. An accelerometer is built-in, as is a GPS sensor and a 3.5mm audio jack. The 200MB of internal memory is expanded by up to 32GB microSDHC cards.
Network support will include HSDPA-based 3G, EDGE and GPRS. Pricing and a release date aren't yet known.
