Meet the Samsung Galaxy Z, Galaxy S II’s younger brother

Another day, another Samsung Android device. Swedish carrier Three just announced the addition of a new Android device to its lineup:  the Samsung Galaxy Z. The Galaxy Z is a slightly more modest version of the Galaxy S II with a 5 MP camera instead of the Galaxy S II’s 8 MP one. And 8 GB of internal storage versus the Galaxy S II’s massive 32 GB.

According to Three’s website, the Galaxy Z will have the following specs:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 4.2-inch SC-LCD screen with a 800×480 resolution
  • 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • 5 MP rear-facing camera with LED flash
  • 720p video recording
  • Front-facing camera
  • 8 GB of internal storage

We don’t know how much RAM the Galaxy Z has yet, but I’m guessing it’ll have 512 MB and not 1 GB like the Galaxy S II. Also, we have no idea when (or if) the Galaxy Z will land in the States. Three will sell this device for about $630, which is a lot even without a contract. But I guess these prices change between regions.

While we wait for the Galaxy Z to jump across the pond, you can feast your eyes on the pictures below. Then let us know in the comments whether you think this phone is worth your hard-earned money or not.

    The “no contract” price of this is actually about 120€ Cheaper than the one of the Galaxy S II, so this is actually a pretty sweet deal, I’d say. Altho I’m curious with how much RAM it comes and if it still has a SD Card slot.

    Seems pointless to get this phone. Isn’t the whole reason of getting the Samsung phones in the first place for the Super AMOLED Plus displays? This has S-LCD……..

    wow… that looks like an iPhone 4

    • http://Website Hans

      To be honest, the only similarities between the SGS phones and the iPhone that I saw was the general shape of the device. Everything else is different.

    Have you guys In the states not got your Galaxy S2 yet? I feel so sorry for you dudes, I’ve had mine since the end of April (I’m in the UK) and I have to say It blows everything out the water. I have to be a scientist about this and give a fair review so here are the bad points:

    1. The thin plastic battery cover feels flimsy. Credit where credit Is due though, If you try to snap one of these plastic covers you’ll be at It all night as It’s as bendable as Mr Fantastic’s briefs.

    That’s the only flaw.

    Hope you get your Galaxy S2 soon, viva la revolution.
