Samsung's New Galaxy Phone Doesn't Have TouchWiz
Carlo F (3 months ago)
Samsung has tried to distinguish its Galaxy range from other Android phones by integrating a TouchWiz overlay. Samsung has silently launched in the U.S. a Galaxy handset that offers a pure Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich experience without carrier or Samsung overlays. The Galaxy Discover has specs of a basic smartphone: a 3.5-inch HVGA screen, an 800MHz processor, 1300mAh battery, and a 3-megapixel camera. The handset will be available in the U.S. with prepaid and less known carriers Straight Talk and Net10. Samsung hasn't provided details on pricing options and shipping dates.
What Else You Need To Know:
- The Galaxy Discover was launched in Canada in December.
- Samsung says that TouchWiz-free Galaxy Discover is able to access notifications and used apps, as well as do web browsing, faster because there won't be a "software overlay to slow you down."
Yes, this is Samsung advertising against its own TouchWiz nonsense.~ Thom Holwerda, OS News
It’s a bad phone, but it should be appealing to the people who don’t care about mobile technology and just need a phone that can make calls and text.~ Brian Sin , DroidDog
