Samsung has announced two new devices that are heading to the South Korea market, looking alarmingly like the Galaxy S3 – the Galaxy Young and the Galaxy Fame. Both devices come equipped with a 1GHz CPU and 512MB RAM, as well as a 1300mAh battery and 4GB internal storage. Aside from these low end specs, one could think they’re looking directly at a shrunk-down version of the Galaxy S3, complete with a TouchWiz Android 4.1 backend.
The chief difference in these two devices is the screen size – The Fame sporting a 3.5 inch display, while the Young comes in at 3.27 inches. There’s also a difference in camera size, with the Young having a 3MP rear camera (ouch), and the Fame showing off a 5MP rear shooter (still ouch). The Fame also comes with NFC, while the Young does not.
We don’t have any word on pricing or availability at this time.
