Samsung knows there’s a lot to be gained in the cheap phone game, so has released the basic Galaxy Young.
Similar in many ways to the new Samsung Galaxy Fame, and likely to be sold side by side in some outlets, the Young skimps on a number of specs in order to bring an ultra-low price to consumers.
As the name clearly suggests, this is a smartphone designed for the whippersnappers, those who don’t want to do anything more than download a few apps, show off to their friends and generally do smartphone things that don’t involve trawling through a million menus to achieve.Read more

It looks like Samsung is looking to break away from the Android game just slightly with one of their upcoming Galaxy handsets. The South Korean company is rumored to be working on a Galaxy smartphone that will run Tizen, an open-source Linux-based mobile operating system. If this turns out to be true, it’ll be the first time that a Galaxy device will be Tizen-based.
We’ve talked about Tizen before and its ties with Samsung, but this is the first time we’ve heard anything about the relationship since May. This rumored Galaxy device is said to launch sometime in the future, but no solid time frame has been leaked yet.
However, even if Samsung does pull off a new Galaxy smartphone running Tizen, it’s said that it will face challenges when it hits the market. The biggest reason being that no one really knows what Tizen is, so it’ll no doubt be extremely difficult for Samsung to standardize the Tizen mobile OS and introduce it as a real competitor to Android and iOS.Read more
