Samsung Galaxy Pocket Budget Smartphone Arrives at FCC

April 4, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you would remember, Samsung had announced a new budget-friendly Android smartphone christened the Galaxy Pocket last month. The device has now appeared at the FCC gates, seeking approval.

The device is most likely to head for the AT&T network, when it finally arrives on the mobile market scene.

Going by what we get to know, the Samsung Galaxy Pocket is packed with Android 2.3 Gingerbread in the core, and features a 2.8 inch QVGA LCD display having resolution of 240 X 320 pixels.

The device comes powered by a single core 832 MHz processor, and has an expandable storage limit of 3 GB via a microSD card.

As expected, the device features only low- end facilities, as the manufacturer has to limit on resources for reducing cost. But the device would be helpful for low- end buyers who can’t afford other devices due to high prices.

The device lodges a 2 megapixel fixed focus camera at its rear for general purpose shooting. Other facilities include Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, an accelerometer and a digital compass. So it appears that the device is worth for the price.

However, the price for the device is unclear for now. The device has reached the FCC for approval, and you can see the device at outlets as soon as it passes FCC test. So, the date of arrival cannot be known until FCC approval.
