After the Samsung Early Christmas treats, Samsung Philippines introduces a new Android phone – the Samsung Galaxy Y. Announced last August 2011, it finally landed in the Philippine shores. This new Android smartphone from Samsung is one of the most affordable Android phone in the market.
The Galaxy Y sports a 3-inch 240×320 pixels LCD display, 832MHz CPU, 2MP camera, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, Bluetooth 3.0 plus Wi-Fi, and a meager 1200mAh battery far better than Galaxy Mini.
