Samsung makes Galaxy Premier official Samsung has made its Galaxy Premier smartphone official, after weeks of rumors.
The phone is a modified version of the flagship Galaxy S III, aimed at a global audience that may not necessarily be able to afford the S III.

In order to keep prices reasonable, the phone has a slightly smaller 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen, although it keeps the same 1280x720 resolution.

Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5 GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor, 1GB of RAM and the phone runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The cameras are also the same, 8MP and 1.9MP for rear and front.

Additionally, the phone has Bluetooth 4.0, LTE and NFC.

The Galaxy Premier includes most of the unique software of the S III, including S Beam, Smart Stay, Direct Call, Pop-up Play, and Best Photo.

It's the same phone as galaxy s3 , just for cheaper .. Screen size doesn't make a phone cost more lol. That would mean a tablet like nexus 7 would cost a lot . This is just the poor mans s3 . Great buy

The thing is this will sell quite well and service providers like Vodafone will push this out on cheaper tarifs. Smart move.

the mini will sell better and if you look at the sIII the tarifs are going down for them as the note 2 has come out.

I don't know what kind of relations Google has with YouTube but they must allow end users to be able to remove it. I only need functions related to a phone. The current incarnation of Adobe Flash Player for Firefox hangs the browser without fail. I doubt it is any better on the Android device!

Any phone larger than my shirt pocke does not cut it for me. Premier may fit the bill.
