There was a time when smartphones with 4.7 inch screens were considered enormous. Now they’re “mini.” They’re also rather rare… but Samsung has a new model called the Samsung Galaxy Feel.

It’s a smartphone with a 4.7 inch HD AMOLED display, an octa-core processor, and 3GB of RAM. Unfortunately the Samsung Galaxy Feel is only launching in Japan… at least for now.

Japanese wireless carrier NTT DoCoMo will begin offering the phone in June.

The Galaxy Feel features 32GB of storage, a 16MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, a 3,000 mAh battery, and 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and 4G LTE support. It has a fingerprint sensor and the phone ships with Android 7.0 Nougat software.

The phone is also waterproof and designed to withstand submersion in depths up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. And like many Japanese phones, it supports digital TV broadcasts, although you’ll need to use an external antenna (which is included with the phone) in order to tune in.

  1. Web browsing on that should feel “amazing”. I do not understand why you would want a smartphone with such a tiny screen, why not just get a small mobile phone, they still exist.

  2. I wonder what type of octa-core processor it has. I don’t think the octa-core cortex a53 are particularly interesting.

  3. Wow. I’m not even close to being interested in a 4.7″ screen for my primary device, but I would really be interested a phone that small with a 3000mah battery for other purposes.

    If it was waterproof, 4.7″, and 3000mah+ battery, I would be interested in that for travelling, using as a music player, and also for any type of outdoor activity that has me regretting my phablet in my pocket 😛

    1. I wish LG would release a successor to the LG F3 love that little phone.. use it for checking my email on the go, and playing mp3s it is showing its age though.. I like the 4″ form factor
