Samsung keeps announcing new phones every passing week that look similar to its current flagship, the Galaxy S3. If the Galaxy S3 Mini was not enough, yesterday Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Premier.
The Galaxy Premier is a successor of the Galaxy Nexus with design cues borrowed from the Galaxy S3. The specs of the handset include a 4.65-inch Super-AMOLED HD (1280×720) display, 1GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of internal memory, a microSD slot, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and a beefy 2100mAh battery. The dual-core OMAP 4470 processor inside the Premier is clocked at 1.5GHz, and is accompanied by a PowerVR SGX544 GPU.
At the back of the handset is an 8MP camera with an LED flash, while a 1.9MP camera in the front takes care of all your video calling needs.
Even though the Galaxy Premier is a successor to the Galaxy Nexus, it does not carry the Nexus brand with it. Samsung has made full use of this opportunity and has infested Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with its TouchWIZ enhancements like S-Beam, Pop-Up Play, S-Voice, Smart Stay and more.
The Galaxy Premier will go on sale from next month in Ukraine and other surrounding regions for around 5,555UAH ((650$). It is not yet clear whether Samsung will be releasing this handset in other regions of the world or not.
