Samsung has once again expanded its family with a mid-ranger called the Galaxy Express. This handset is literally a bigger version of the Galaxy S III Mini (and a smaller S III I suppose) which will hit Philippine shelves this weekend.
What makes it diffrent with the S III Mini? I guess it would be the extra real-estate. It's crafted with a 4.5-inch WVGA display and a capable 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU. That differs a little from what we have seen on the previous' specs, but for those of you who would want to have a bigger screen, this handset deserves a second look. It even looked like a Galaxy S III in a glance.
Other specs are just the same - 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal memory (expandable with SD card), 5MP rear camera (1.3 MP front). Radios are LTE and NFC and battery is quite convincing in 2000 mAh. Ofcourse, all of Sammy's 2013 release will carry Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) out of the box.
