GALAXY Express Product Image (1)

While other manufacturers are releasing phones with 1080p screens, Samsung have decided to go the other way and make a phone where the pixels are so big, you can see them in all their PenTile pixelly glory.

The display on the Galaxy Express is a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus display with a resolution of 800×480 (207 PPI). Outrageous! Apart from its horrible, horrible screen, the specs don’t sound too bad.

  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • LTE
  • 8 GB internal memory with microSD card slot
  • 5 megapixel rear camera, and 1.3 megapixel rear camera
  • Android 4.1
  • 2,000 mAh battery (still bigger than the HTC One X)

Given that it’s being marketed as a ‘value-driven 4G LTE smartphone’, chances are it’ll be available fairly cheaply. The phone is compatible with the 1800 MHz band used currently by both Telstra and Optus’ LTE networks, so look for it on some cheap plans in the coming months.

Pretty useful for a knockabout phone actually.
My god it is going to have to be cheap to not look way overpriced compared with an Nexus 4, assuming you could actually ever purchase one…

Quite similar to the GS II 4G that Telstra were doing in 2011.

If it is super amoled plus, then it is not pentile.
