Samsung announces low-end Jelly Bean Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame

Samsung today made things official for two new low-end Galaxy devices coming soon: the Samsung Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame. Both of the devices sport familiar—and almost identical to one another—Galaxy-like designs, but the Fame provides a slightly larger display and better specs.

The Galaxy Young, which we assume is the lower priced of the two models, includes a 3.27-inch HVGA TFT display, a 1GHz processor, 4GB of onboard storage, 768MB RAM, Bluetooth 3.0, a 1,300mAh battery, and a 3-megapixel camera. The Fame, on the other hand, gets all the same specs, but it is also upgraded to a 3.5-inch display, better 5-megapixel auto focus camera, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.

Samsung noted that a hybrid Dual SIM variant of the devices will arrive in certain markets, but it didn’t disclose information on pricing or launch dates.
