Samsung announces 4.5 inch Galaxy Express

Samsung GALAXY ExpressSamsung never seems to amaze, and this is not any different. The electronics company from South Korea has announced another addition to their Galaxy branded portfolio and named it Galaxy Express. I thought by now they would have run out of Galaxy iterations, little did I know. The Galaxy Express is a 4.5 inch device with 4G LTE capabilities, no 3G version so you would expect this is not a device for the global markets. Other than that and the different physical specifications, the Galaxy Express looks like almost any other Galaxy device announced after the Galaxy S III, well save for the S II plus.

Other additions are on software where over the S things that were bundled in most of the devices that came after the Galaxy S III that are TouchWiz specific, Galaxy Express has Mobile High Definition Link (MHL), a mirroring interface that will connect to any HD device as an extra larger screen, it has NFC and Samsung’s S Beam, so fast file transfer with larger size limitations is on board. The Galaxy Express was announced with only one colour in the press photos, and no mention whatsoever of other colours, price, availability details or even where it’s headed. But with LTE you would assume Japan, South Korea and probably Europe as the main markets.

Here’s what’s inside the Galaxy Express:

  • 4G LTE
  • 8GB internal memory with microSD support(32GB)
  • 1GB RAM
