Earlier this year, Samsung announced the new Galaxy S Advance smartphone. It is the fourth variant of the company’s highly popular Galaxy S smartphone. This handset comes with the curved glass design, which was previously seen in the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus smartphones. The curved glass design enhances the handling of the device and fits the user’s facial form easily.
The Samsung Galaxy S Advance comes with a 4 inch Super AMOLED display and a powerful 1 GHz dual-core processor. This handset currently runs on the old Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System. However, we are not sure if the device will get the Android 4.0 update in the near future. We have good news for the folks living in the UK. Three has finally released this device exclusively for its subscribers in the UK. You can get this device on contract as well as on Pay-As-You-Go.
Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three said,
“The curved touchscreen of the Samsung Galaxy S Advance really does bring rich media content to life. And whether you’re into downloading videos and images, or sharing the ones you’ve captured yourself, you can rest assured that you’ll always be protected from surprise data bills on Three.”
