Design and Display

The handset has not much difference from the predecessor. It has a typical square shape like the other Samsung handsets but the new variant is small in size measuring 109.7 x 60.6 x 11.7 mm in dimension. The handset is made up with the shiny plastic due to this reason it weighs 110 grams only which is enough for this type of low end device.

The handset has a 3.2 inches capacitive touch screen display with 240 x 320 pixels resolution. This is not the high density resolution but is enough and sufficient for this type of economical low configuration handset. In short the make, size, weight and display make the Galaxy Pocket 2 the convenient handset.

Software & User Interface

Android is a very pliable mobile operating system that is competent of powering all kinds of smartphones. The company upgrades the software and now new Galaxy Pocket 2 runs android 4.4.2 KitKat. Its predecessor runs the initial version of Android known as ‘Ginger Bread’ a bit older version of Android operating system. The upgraded operating system gives the handset efficiency and provides the coolest interface to the users. The operating system is easy in use and users can enjoy the features of the handset itself and the applications.

Processor and Memory

Company did not upgrade the operating system only they insert the powerful processor as well for the proper and efficient working. As we know this is the low range handset so the company provides 1 GHz processor. 512MB RAM is offered, although RAM is not sufficient but according to the processor the RAM is quite enough. The RAM and the processor combination make the handset bit speedy. The handset is embedded with the 4 GB on board memory extendable up to 32GB via microSD. In short with this RAM, processor and memory users can run low capacity files and applications easily but they are unable to perform multi tasks and they do not have enough memory to run the large games or other applications as well. If they try to run the large files, they affect the speed of handset due to low capacity RAM.

Camera

The handset is equipped with 2 mega pixel camera only. There is no secondary camera found in the handset. Users can take the images with the help of 2 mega pixel camera having 1600x1200 pixels density. Although the pixel density is also low but this is ok for this type of low range handset and users don’t have any objection on this. The camera matches with the combination of the handset hardware.

Battery

The handset is energized with Li-Ion 1200 mAh removable battery which gives enough time to the handset. The battery provides Stand by time up to 800 h (2G) / Up to 500 h (3G) and talk time up to 17 h (2G) / Up to 5 h 40 min (3G) which is really good for the talkative persons. If any mishandling happens with the battery users don’t need to change the complete handset they can easily change the battery and keep their cell phone alive.

Extra Feature

 This is the successor of the predecessor Galaxy Pocket. The predecessor has a mini SIM option but now it’s time for the new things. The company has equipped the handset with dual SIM option. Users can use their 2 SIMs at the same time.

Expectations

Users like the concept behind the Samsung Galaxy Pocket. This is the handset that brings the power of the smartphone to the hands without costing them more.  The handset envelops every basic Android aspect, and runs all the supportive applications available in the Google Play store.

If users don't plan to use it a lot for web browsing, though, the Pocket will get the job done perfectly without too much hassle. The handset presence is confirmed but unfortunately still we don’t know when the handset hits the markets. We really hope that Samsung will provide the affordable smartphone solution in the form of Galaxy Pocket 2.
