Samsung debuts 7-inch Galaxy W for Korea

File under: Seriously?

Samsung on Monday introduced a new 7-inch smartphone (not tablet) for its Korean home turf with the Galaxy W. Yep, the same model/branding used for another Android smartphone from 2011. And, much like the Mega line, this is a case of being bigger, but not necessarily better.

Featuring a display resolution of 720×1080 pixels, it’s a 4G LTE-A handset with mid-range hardware under the hood. Specifications here include a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and a 3200mAh battery. In terms of cameras, the Galaxy W offers an 8-megapixel rear shooter with a front-facing 2-megapixel experience.

Powered by Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, it will retail for roughly 499,400 won ($490, £290, AUS $526). Color options are black, red, and white and each comes with the faux-leather found in the Galaxy Note 3.
