Previously rumored as the Galaxy Z, Samsung has officially announced a lower-cost high-end alternative to its Android flagship Galaxy S II smartphone known as the Galaxy R. The Galaxy R will be powered by a dual-core chip, presumably the NVIDIA Tegra 2, instead of the Galaxy S II’s dual-core Exynos CPU, and will pack in a 4.2-inch Super Clear LCD display rather than the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus on the flagship. Both devices will feature 1 GB of RAM and room for expandable memory; the Galaxy R will also feature 8 GB internal memory.
Unlike the 8-megapixel camera that can record 1080p HD video on the Galaxy S II, the Galaxy R’s camera is more in line with last year’s Galaxy S as it features a 5-megapixel still camera that’s capable of 720p HD video capture. The Galaxy R, though, thanks to its more powerful dual-core chip than last year’s Galaxy S, can decode 1080p video.
The device will initially be deployed first in Europe and Samsung is hoping for a worldwide roll out later. It’s unclear if the Galaxy R will make it to the U.S.
The Galaxy R will feature Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
