Samsung has officially announced a brand new entry-level 5G smartphone known as the Galaxy Wide5 in it’s home market where the phone carries a launch price of 449,900 KRW (US$384).
For starter, the Samsung Galaxy Wide5 features a 6.6” IPS LCD display that offers a FHD+ screen resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, as well as an 8 megapixels front-facing camera for selfie and video-calling purposes.
At the back, the Galaxy Wide5 comes with a square-shape camera module which kind of reminds us of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite (Review). It brings along a total of three cameras including a 64 megapixels main camera, 5 megapixels ultra-wide lens, as well as a 2 megapixels depth sensor.
Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy Wide5 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset which is coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage that can be further expanded via a microSD card.
The phone draws power from a gigantic 5,000mAh battery that comes with support for 15W fast-charging. Other than that, it also worth noting that the phone features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as Android 11 OS.
