frontback Samsung announces Galaxy Discovery for the US with almost stock Android

If you had to re-read the title of this post, relax, it’s not a typo. Samsung will be delivering a smartphone with a near stock Android experience to two U.S. carriers. The Galaxy Discover (a Galaxy S III inspired smartphone), a low-range device will feature a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a single core 800MHz Qualcomm processor and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), not Jelly Bean. It will also have a meager 2.7GB of internal storage, but thankfully it’s expandable up to 32GB with SD card support, then there’s the typical smartphone specs like WiFi, BlueTooth and GPS. There’s also a 3-megapixel camera on the back, for taking passable(?) photos. Powering this little Galaxy is a 1,300mAh (removable) battery, which should be plenty of juice for a device running these specs.

While the Discover isn’t quite up to snuff when compared to Samsung’s other devices, for a budget, or “free” phone, it may fit the bill for many people. The Galaxy Discover will arrive on both Net10 and Straight Talk, both of which can be found any many Walmarts. We don’t have a firm price, if any, or release date, but it should be released relatively soon.
