Samsung announces new Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame Jelly Bean phones

Samsung has announced two brand new Android Jelly Bean running Galaxy smartphones for its ever expanding mid-range of devices, this time in the form of the Galaxy Fame and the Galaxy Young.

Both the Fame and Young will come sporting the latest Android 4.1 OS upon releases and both handsets are aimed at the mid-ranged marker, or more specifically the younger generation.

Samsung has released the specifications of its two new Galaxys, with the Young sporting a 3.27-inch HVGA TFT touchscreen display and running off a 1GHz processor with 768MB RAM, 3MP back camera and it also has an ample 4GB of storage built in plus a microSD card slot that can hold up to an extra 64GB of memory.

You will also get all the standard connectivity options that you’d expect from a modern smartphone with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0, as well as a 1,300mAh battery. Additionally, the Young will go on sale in multiple colours including white, wine red, deep blue, and metallic silver.

The Samsung Galaxy Fame however has a slightly larger 3.5-inch screen and is also powered by a 1GHz processor coupled with 512MB RAM. Similar to the Young, the Fame has 4GB of on-board storage and a microSD card slot with capacity to take cards up to 64GB. Oddly though, the Fame has a better camera than the Young with a built in 5MP rear camera with LED flash and then a VGA front camera.

There will be dual-SIM versions of both handsets available, but this probably wont be an option available in the UK.

Release date and pricing details are yet to be revealed by Sammy but we expect the full package of information to be released on the Young and Fame at the upcoming MWC event in the next few weeks.
