Samsung Galaxy W Announced, a True “Phablet” Device

Galaxy W

Samsung announced a new smartphone over the weekend, the Galaxy W. The “W” should stand for “WTF,” as the Galaxy W comes packed with a display size of 7″ at a resolution of 1280 x 720. Imagine holding that device up to your head for placing calls. It would seem rather silly to anyone witnessing such a sight. 

Beyond its massive display size, the device comes with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 3,200mAh battery, comes in Black, Red, and White color options, and runs Android 4.3 “Jelly Bean.”

Worried about seeing someone attempt to pull this out of their pockets? Don’t. The device is set for Korea-only launch, with chances of it ever hitting our shores being extremely slim.
