Galaxy Premier I9260 specs, price and release date officially announced

Guess who’s finally going to rage through the cellular circuits come December?

The Samsung Galaxy Premier I9260 is all set to hit the stores in Ukraine by the end of this year for $680, which approximately amounts to 5,555UAH. Sure, you it looks laughable when you that the Nexus 4 costs only $350, while packing much superior hardware than the Galaxy Premier, but that’s that.

There have been enough talks about this phone even before its launch. It looks to impress by combining the sleek look of the Samsung Galaxy SIII while borrowing the spec-sheet (sans on-screen keys) from the Galaxy Nexus, speaking of which, it was long rumored as the Galaxy Nexus 2, even if you don’t believe it now. The Galaxy premier flaunts the Android 4.1 OS and extends it with the Samsung’s widely known TouchWiz UI.

The Samsung Galaxy Premier comes with a 4.65 inch, 1280 x 720 pixels HD Super AMOLED Display. It has a 8MP primary camera capable of 1080p video recording and a 1.9 megapixel secondary, front facing camera for video chats and stuff. Then there is 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, the choice of 8 or 16 GB internal memory with microSD card slot support, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and 2,100 mAh battery.

True the spirit of the Samsung Android phones, it comes pre-installed with all the usual trimmings of S Voice, S Beam, Smart Stay, Pop-up Play, Best Photo etc, as you would expect from TouchWiz.
