The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a slight upgrade from the Samsung Galaxy young. The phone also features Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 1 GHz processor, but it has a 3.5-inch HVGA display. The phone measures 113.2mm x 61.6 x 11.6mm (4.46in x 2.43in x 0.46in) and weighs 120.6g (4.25oz). It also includes 512MB RAM, 4GB of storage, a microSD slot up to 64 GB, and a 1,300 mAh battery.
