Samsung Galaxy M takes Super AMOLED mass-market

Samsung has outed its latest Super AMOLED Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy M Style, promising to be "reasonably priced" despite packing a 4-inch display, Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi b/g/n. Hitting South Korea today, the Galaxy M borrows some of the styling from its more expensive siblings, but is expected to cost the equivalent of around $500 unlocked.

That still sounds on the high side to us, especially since you only get a 3-megapixel main camera and VGA-resolution front camera. Still, a DMB TV tuner is onboard, along with 4GB of storage and a 1,650 mAh battery, while Android 2.3 Gingerbread is running on a 1GHz single-core processor.

Variants for SK Telekom, Korea Telekom and LG U+ will be offered, with Samsung's own download store providing a choice of videos, photos and games. Samsung will be offering the 122.5 x 63 x 9.9 mm smartphone in silver, black and pink, though there's no word on a launch outside of Korea at this stage.
