Let's return to 2011. Did the world of smartphones look completely different? In the same year, the Samsung Galaxy R gained the market, which was the cheapest Galaxy S II version, today considering it to be one of the best in the history of this series (or at least the most sentimental one). This model does not have a direct successor, but after eight years, Samsung will reinstate this position.
I have to admit that I completely forgot about the presence of the Samsung Galaxy R. However, the smartphone was available in Poland. Interestingly, you can still find it on Komputronik's website for PLN 1499. In 2011, it was not small, but lower than the Galaxy S II price, which was PLN 2299 in Poland.
Here I am not talking about Samsung Galaxy R specification, because in this case it does not make sense. If you would like to remind yourself, I threw in a report on Paweł Mobzillu, who had the opportunity to test this equipment:
However, Samsung, unlike the HMD Global instances of individual models, is unlikely to play with the mood. For a simple reason: Galaxy R may remember some people because it's hard to be considered a "cult". In spite of everything, the fact is that this series will soon return to live.
Galaxy J, Galaxy C and Galaxy On will change significantly next year – they will be replaced by the Galaxy M, Galaxy P and Galaxy R series. The first of these should be the lowest, while the other two are slightly higher. However, this will not be a very large rack, as this segment is reserved for the Galaxy A family, which was recently expanded by Koreans (quite unexpectedly).
Samsung announced the Galaxy A8s premiere, which will have "something that no other smartphone on the market"
Returning to Galaxy R, we have just received "confirmation" that the next representative of this series will be on the lower middle shelf level. As well-known Samsung plans @MMDDJ_ say, the smartphone will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. Let me remind you that it consists of eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz and uses a 14-nm process. In his case, Adreno 506 is responsible for the timetable. In terms of performance, this device is slightly smaller than the Snapdragon 625.
Samsung will not be the first time that the Snapdragon 450 will be achieved – this processor is already running on Galaxy A6 +. However, it is not known which countries have new Galaxy Rs smartphones, so it's difficult to predict if they will reach Poland. We do not know more about the upcoming news – everything we do not know yet.
