Samsung Galaxy Young, Galaxy Fame launched – Specs, Price, Comparison

Companies like Samsung never stops. Android ecosystem has developed a distinct yet common trend among dominant manufacturers i.e. to launch several smartphones with almost similar specs and minor variations. So, here goes another two smartphones announcement by Samsung, Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame. Both these phones are entry-level Jelly Bean android phones and available in two variants i.e. single sim, dual-sim support, depending upon the market/country. Dual Sim support also comes with Always on Feature so that calls to one sim are forwarded to other sim card when you’re busy on the other one. Both the phones have 1GHz processor, 4GB of internal storage with support for micro-sd card of upto 32GB, screen resolution of 480*320 pixels on capacitive touch screen display, 3G (7.2mbps), WiFi, GPS, 1300mAh battery. So, the main differences between the two phones are in the screen size as Galaxy Young has smaller screen size of 3.27 inch whereas Galaxy Fame has screen size of 3.5-inch, and camera as Galaxy Young has 3mp rear camera without flash and no front camera whereas Galaxy Fame has 5mp rear camera with flash and VGA front facing camera.

So, this is really weird combination of specification here. Also, in Samsung Galaxy Fame, we’ve NFC support in limited
