Samsung may be on its way to make Android KitKat available for an entry-level device. It’s been reported that they shipped a smartphone (model SM-G350E) to India for testing purposes. It runs the latest OS and has 8GB of internal storage space, and will also be positioned at an affordable price of $103 or Php4,500.
Along with a friendly price tag, it comes with the following specs:
1.2GHz dual-core processor
8GB internal storage
5MP rear camera with autofocus
HD video recording
VGA front camera
Android 4.4 KitKat
If you’d notice, the specs above kind of resembles the specs of the entry-level Motorola Moto E – right from its 4.3-inch display, dual-core processor, RAM, pixel count of camera, OS, down to the price (Moto E is expected to arrive for $105). They are clearly aiming to not make Motorola get all the attention when it comes to entry-level devices with decent specs.
Samsung’s upcoming smartphone could very well be the most affordable handset that runs on Android KitKat right out of the box with its $103 price tag
Watch out, Motorola!
