Samsung Galaxy Pop, like a mini Galaxy S3

Samsung already announced that it is planning to add many new models to its Galaxy series in 2013, and the company has kicked its launching streak by releasing the Galaxy Pop in Korea!

* Samsung has released phones in other countries called the Galaxy Pop, but this isn’t that one, it’s… different.

You can think of the Galaxy Pop, with it’s 4.65-inch, 1280 x 720 AMOLED display as a sort of mini Galaxy S III. (The Galaxy S III has a 4.8-inch screen.) The Pop is powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and keeps its big brother’s 1.4 GHz quad-core processor. This slightly smaller phone should fit more easily into your hand and, probably into the pocket of your pop star-inspired leather jeans.

Samsung’s Galaxy series, including the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III, was a global megahit in 2012 and the world’s largest phone maker seems to be starting 2013 off right. According to Samsung, more than 100 million Galaxy smartphones have been sold, to date. Will Samsung be able to sustain its popularity in 2013? Tell us in the comments!

Born in Korea and raised on three different continents, I have always been enthusiastic to share the uniqueness of Korean culture and design. On top of that, the advanced level of Korean technology makes me proud to call myself Korean and motivates me to spread technology related news to more people around the world. The list of things I like (and like to do) is endless: Shopping, Gummy jellies, Lilies... and it goes on

    Hi Sophie, I have been reading and enjoying your Korean tech news for two or three weeks now. This is just to thank you for your good work. For some reason I assumed that “you” were a small group of young men that put all this together; it’s nice to see that you are only one and a female! Congratulations.

    Any ideas of how much will it cost? Because the S3 it’s really good but it’s size is way too much for a normal pants pocket to hold it.

      Prices tend to vary from country-to-country. The best way to find out is generally to make a trip to your local phone store and ask!
