Samsung is going to announce a new entry-level smartphone dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Wide 3 in Korea on May 25. The device would cost somewhere around $275 (297,000 won).
As per the company, the Galaxy Wide 3 is aimed at people over their 40s who want a large screen device for a small price. This, however, feels a bit awkward as there are way better devices in this price segment such as the Honor 7X and the recently launched Honor 7C.
Samsung Galaxy Wide 3: Full specifications
Coming to the specifications of the device, the Galaxy Wide 3 offers entry-level specifications as mentioned earlier. At the display front, we get a 5.5-inch HD display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. Sadly, there is no infinity display like the newly launched Samsung smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy J4 which is available at more or less the same price point.
Under the hood, we get an unspecified octa-core chipset clocked at 1.6GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which can further be expanded with the help of an external SD card.
At the camera front, we get a 13MP rear camera with a f/1.7 aperture and a 13MP selfie snapper with a f/1.9 aperture.
There is a 3,300 mAh battery fueling the device and there is no support for quick charging this time around.
The Galaxy Wide 3 is going to run on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Samsung’s Experience UI 9.0 on top of it. The device will launch on May 25 on SK-Telecom in South Korea.
