    Samsung Galaxy R Announced

    The Samsung Galaxy S II is one of the most hyped Android phones to date, with millions of copies sold; Samsung just announced a cheaper priced spin-off for those that arenít swimming in money. This mid-range device was originally rumored under the name Samsung Galaxy Z, but todayís announcement by Samsung indicates it is going to be released with the name Galaxy R. The notable changes are all downgrades to hardware components.

    The screen was downgraded from a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus to a 4.2 inch Super Clear LCD. The camera isnít as stunning anymore, stepping down from the 8MP to a 5MP. Samsung may also be changing the processor from their Exynos dual core processor found in the Galaxy S II, to the popular NVIDA made Tegra 2 chipset. The last notable change is with the storage memory; according to the announcement it will be downgraded to 8 GB rather than 16 GB the Galaxy S is currently offering.

    This is certainly a less powerful device than the current "King Kong" of the Android world. The specs have made this fall in-line with the mid-range crowd, rather than stand out like the Galaxy S II does. Hopefully the release date and price will make this a great deal in comparison to the rest of the competition.

    It's still a HECK of an upgrade for a LOT of people.

    I wonder what the price will be off-contract for a VZW-compatible CDMA version.
