South Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung is planning to make it big in the global mobile market during the year 2013. Having faced stiff competition from companies like Apple, Blackberry and HTC, Samsung has found it difficult to live up to the standards that have been set by the company itself. Moreover, the latest lawsuits filed by Apple against Samsung combined with deteriorating quality standards have dented their position majorly.
However, the company promises to make the year 2013 big for itself with quite a few high-profile launches in the pipeline. The latest launches not only include the launch of the high-profile Galaxy Tab 3 but also innovative products like bending phones, Galaxy S IV and Galaxy Grand. The phones are full of hi-fi features which are exclusive to Samsung. Here we are going to discuss the launches according to their features and specifications.
The five inch display smartphone runs on Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) and runs on a 1.2 GHz Dual Core Processor. It is going to be available in the market in two different versions, the dual-SIM version (GT-19082) and another single SIM version (GT-19080). It is infact one of the very few limited handsets to feature dual-band WiFi capabilities. In order to bring out the maximum out of your phone’s wireless technology, you should have a router with a 5Ghz capability. The weight of the device is yet another factor. Standing at 162 gms, it is 20 grams lighter than the Note II. Powered by 8 MP camera with LED flash and a memory capacity, expandable by up to 64 GB galaxy Grand can be worth a bet for 21000.
Galaxy S IV
The phone is yet to be formally launched in the market with reports suggesting that the month of March has been selected for the official launch. The proposed specifications of the phone include: Android v4.2 (Jelly Bean) running on Quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A 15 processor. It has been powered by a 2GB RAM and has an expandable memory up to 16 GB. It has a 13 MP camera with autofocus and flash lights to make enhance the user’s viewing experience. The additional features include a 5 inch dull HD AMOLED display that adds to its beauty.
Galaxy Tab 3
This one is proposed to be released during the Mobile world Congress (MWC) meet this year. It is going to be an 8-inch tablet priced somewhere in the range of $249-$299. If rumours have it right, then it will come equipped with an Android v5 2.0 GHz Quad-Core A15 Processor and 2GB RAM which is much faster than the 1 GB RAM that powers Tab 2. It is also supposed to have a 5 MP primary camera and 1.3 MP secondary camera which would put it up against tough competition with other Tab manufacturing giants like Apple and Google.
Samsung Bending Phone
This, yet again, is meant to be another technological extravaganza. According to Samsung insiders it contains a high resolution display on extremely thin plastic, instead of glass. This means that it can survive falls or blows from even the clumsiest of mishaps. The organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) have been used to make this flexible technology possible. More of the specifications are yet to be released on this flexible reality.
Given the expansion plans, Samsung is all out to prove it worth to the world. It can be said that with the plans very much in place, its now upto implementation of the processes to make it big. Moreover, the technological roadblocks are also to be addressed in order to make the processes more fruitful.
