Samsung GALAXY Chat targets those who are socially active
Here we are with yet another smartphone device from South Korean manufacturer Samsung, and we are talking about the expansion of their Galaxy range in the form of the Samsung GALAXY Chat. The name itself makes plenty of sense though – it was specially designed for socially-active users, and the Samsung Galaxy Chat is said to enable users to hook folks up with the rest of their family and friends in a jiffy. There is no word on pricing just yet, but it is said that the Samsung Galaxy Chat will arrive on the soil of Euro 2012 winners first, Spain, in July, followed by a rollout in Europe, Latin America, Middle East, China, Southeast Asia, and Southwest Asia. Chances are this will be a low-end or mid-range smartphone at best.
Touted to come in a sleek and compact form factor, the Samsung Galaxy Chat will run on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, but do not expect it to have the Jelly Bean update anytime soon. Other hardware specifications include a 3″ touchscreen display complete with a full QWERTY keypad for you to send out those text messages, emails and Facebook status updates in a jiffy.
The Samsung Galaxy Chat ensures that your social life will remain fun and easy to manage. It will come with its own dedicated launch key on the handset, accompanied by Samsung’s ChatON communication service that will hook you up with users of ChatON on other platforms. This is more or less Samsung’s version of WhatsApp, where it offers spontaneous group chatting and messaging, never mind if it is text, animations or images that you intend to share. Email is a snap to handle and manage, courtesy of its predictive search capabilities, where there is also a more visual action bar that delivers seamless navigation. in addition to the ability to nest mail folders.
If you love mobile gaming, then the Samsung Galaxy Chat should also be your cup of tea, where it comes preloaded with Game Hub, which is pre-packed with the most popular social games for endless hours of entertainment, at least this is what Samsung claims. Any takers?
