A new leak indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Win might become the first smartphone of the South Korea-based company powered by a Snapdragon 200 processor. Even though Samsung didn’t officially announce the smartphone yet, we already have the first pictures and technical specifications, courtesy of SamMobile. Galaxy Win is a dual-SIM smartphone that fits perfectly in the mid-end segment.
Samsung Galaxy Win will be underpinned by a quad-core Cortex A15 CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz and Adreno 203 GPU. Qualcomm claims that the new Snapdragon 200 chipset is optimized to provide an efficient management for the battery in dual-SIM dual Standby mode and it can playback HD video content.
Unfortunately, the Snapdragon 200 SoC is not compatible with the 4G LTE networks, therefore the Galaxy Win only comes with HSDPA connectivity for both SIMs, with download speeds of up to 21 Mbps. For the time being there are no details about the RAM and the internal storage, but the new mid-end terminal will come with microSD card support of up to 32 GB.
Samsung Galaxy Win will pack a 47-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of about 198 pixels, less than half the pixel density the Samsung Galaxy S4 provides.
Samsung Galaxy Win will come pre-loaded with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean plus the customized user interface dubbed Nature UX, introduced with the launch of Galaxy S3.
The primary camera uses a 5 megapixel sensor, with autofocus and LED flash, while the front-facing unit is a VGA camera. The smartphone will come with Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11n, GPS and a 2,000 mAh battery.
The first leaked pictures of the Samsung Galaxy Win reveal a design reminiscent of the other smartphones in the Galaxy line-up, being pretty close to the one of Galaxy Premier. On the back, the location of the primary camera reminds of the Galaxy S3.
Sources say that the Samsung Galaxy Win will only be available in “Ceramic White,” hitting the market in late May or Early June. There are no details about the price of the Samsung Galaxy Win.
