You know how it seems like smartphones are getting bigger and bigger? That’s because they are. Meet the Samsung Galaxy W. It’s a smartphone with a 7 inch screen.
Sure, it’s not available in the US… and it’s not quite as big as the new Asus FonePad 8. But it’s still a smartphone with a 7 inch screen. Rememeber when 4 inch phones seemed enormous?
Anyway, the Samsung Galaxy W is launching in Korea only at the moment, where shoppers will be able to pick up a phone with a 7 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel TFT display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card reader, and a 3200mAh battery.
The phone runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, features an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera, as well as support for 4G LTE-A networks.
The Samsung Galaxy W will be available in black, white, or red.
It’s unlikely the Galaxy W will ever make it to the United States… while smartphone sizes in the US seem to be on the rise, phones with tablet-sized screens seem to be much more popular in Asia for now.
