Samsung clearly intends to release a multitude of phones this year, and the company has started with a slightly tweaked version of the Samsung Galaxy Express, a midrange Android smartphone it released in late 2012.
The Samsung Galaxy Express is yet another scaled-down version of the Galaxy S III, offering a more affordable version of Samsung's flagship phone for considerably less money. It has a 4.5-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus screen, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot that supports to 32GB cards. The phone measures 132.2mm x 69.1mm x 9.3mm and weighs 139.1g.
A 2,000mAh battery powers the Galaxy Express, and a custom version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UX powers the software. The phone supports 4G LTE and HSPA+, MHL, NFC, Wi-Fi Direct, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-Fi 8021.11 a/b/g/n. The plethora of connectivity options will be made available at a later date, though Samsung has failed to announce any details about price, launch date, or global availability. AT&T already announced a Galaxy Express last year, so the global version is likely headed to Europe and other regions that don't get the Samsung Galaxy Mini.source: Samsung
