Samsung announces Galaxy Star, Galaxy Win and Galaxy Pocket Neo

Trio of Samsung Galaxy smartphones come with Jelly Bean and dual-SIM

Samsung Galaxy Star, Galaxy Win and Galaxy Pocket Neo

Samsung has introduced three new Galaxy smartphones to add to its ever increasing portfolio.

As if the Galaxy range wasn't confusing enough, Samsung has added a further three handsets to it – the Galaxy Star, Galaxy Pocket Neo and the Galaxy Win. Each has a different set of features and will appeal to different users. See also: Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 goes on sale for £339.

Samsung said the phones feature: "powerful performance, intelligent features and enhanced dual-SIM functionality to provide exceptional connectivity and entertainment".

All of the new Galaxy smartphones will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. Unfortunately there's no pricing or release date details for the UK at the moment.

The Samsung Galaxy Win is the largest of the handsets with a 4.7in screen. It's powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and has 8GB of internal storage and a 5Mp rear facing camera. It will be available in dual-SIM or single-SIM in Ceramic White and Titan Gray.

Both the Galaxy Star and Galaxy Pocket Neo have considerably less impressive specs and will therefore be much more affordable options.

The Galaxy Star features a 3in display, a 1GHz processor, 4GB of internal storage and a 2Mp rear facing camera. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Pocket Neo shares a similar spec line-up of the same 3in screen, 4GB of internal storage and 2Mp rear camera. However, is has a slower 850MHz processor on-board.

All three of the Galaxy smartphones have a microSD card slot for expansion – up to 32GB.
Samsung describes them as "perfect for the younger generation of mobile user" thanks to "stylish, compact form factor" and "intuitive navigation and multimedia and content sharing possibilities."
