Samsung has announced the launch of a cheaper Android Phone. It is the launch under youth oriented lineup. Lets get down to the nitty gritty of this phone.
The phone is equipped with 3 inches TFT touchscreen along with 240*320 pixels resolution and virtual QWERTY keypad. It supports multi-touch input method along with touch sensitive controls and TouchWiz UI. It is running on Android Gingerbread OS and 832 MHz processor.
The handset also sports 2 megapixel camera but does not have a secondary camera. Thus, it does not support video camera. It supports video recording with QVGA camera recording at a rate of 15 frames per second. Some of the in built social applications are Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk, Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, Google Search, Voice Memo, etc. Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 also features built-in accelerometer, proximity sensor, office document viewer and Swype text input.
The only quibble with the phone is 2 megapixel that is surely disappointing. However, this phone sports Gingerbread, Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, WIFI, 832 MHz processor and social networking applications at an attractive price. This surely a cool handset with great features and worth the price.
