Three-Sweden Launches Samsung Galaxy Z

The Samsung Galaxy S II is Samsung’s latest flagship which us Android fans in the US are still waiting to see. Now, even though we don’t have said sexy handset, Samsung has launched another new Android powered device and it’s actually cheap alternative of Samsung Galaxy S II  known as the Samsung Galaxy Z. It looks a lot like SGS2, but things are little different under the hood. The first carrier to have this device is Three Sweden, who is offering it without contract for £390/$624, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S II is available for around £500/$800 SIM-free. The Galaxy Z comes with a dual-processor (probably 1 GHz), Android 2.3 along TouchWiz UI, 4.2 Inch Super Clear LCD display with resolution of 480 x 800, a 5 MP camera with flash , 8 GB internal memory and it’s expandable to 32 GB, thanks to microSD card. It looks like there is no front facing cam on this device however.

It’s available for pre-order at Three-Sweden and they are offering it for free on contract starting from almost £20 per-month. The device seems to be a pretty good budget alternative to the SGS 2. One thing I like is the metal cover on the back side, which gives it a better look than SGS2 because it’s all plastic on the back of it.

Hopefully, this device will hit  the UK and other countries soon, no word on a US release as of yet.

So who thinks it’s a good alternative of SGS2? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
