Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame announced by Korean manufacturer.

Samsung has unveiled two new basic smartphone in the form of the Galaxy Young and the Galaxy Fame.

Powered by a 1GHz processor, both of the new smartphones come with the Android 4.1 operating system, as well as 4GB internal storage and a 1,300,Ah battery.

At present, there are no details available as to when the new handsets will be released or how much they will cost. However, Samsung has revealed that both the Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame will be available in two versions depending on the market; the conventional Dual SIM version, or the Hybrid Dual SIM version, which is designed to allow users to use 3G data on one SIM while taking a call on the other.

Last week, Samsung also lifted the lid on another two smartphones with the Galaxy Express and the XCover 2.

Aimed primarily at ‘the young social explorer’ the Galaxy Express doesn’t pack quite the same punch as the Galaxy S III, yet it does come with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.5-inch screen and runs on Android’s Jelly Bean operating system.

The Galaxy Express, which will be on-sale by the end of June, also features a five-megapixel camera and a 1.3-mega-pixel front facing camera.

Meanwhile, the rugged XCover 2 smartphone is designed to be water resistant for up to half an hour to the depth of one metre. Its design will also render it sand and dust proof.

There is currently no release date set for the XCover 2, but it has been revealed that it will run on a 1GHz dual-core processor and has a four-inch screen.
