Samsung Galaxy Y and Galaxy Y Pro Revealed [Video]

Two devices at the bottom of the price scale delivered to the public today via a specs list and press images are the Samsung Galaxy Y (Y for Young) and the Galaxy Y Pro. Something to note here is that Y for Young means those getting into the smartphone game or just those literally young of age - certainly this has nothing to do with Jay-Z who is also known as Young - keep that in mind. What you're getting here are two lovely looking bottom-of-mid-range devices made by Samsung to bring people into the Android fold on their TouchWiz interface so they'll love it so much they'll never go back. Will the Y do it?

First there's the Y (without the Pro). This device is as basic as Android gets - a 3-inch WVGA (320x240) resolution TFT LCD display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread (probably the smallest phone on the market with Gingerbread EVER), 2 megapixel camera on the back, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and a 1200 mAh battery. This device will support Samsung Hubs of all kinds, Swype keyboard out of the box, and everything else in the world that can be run with a 832MHz processor.

Then there's the Galaxy Y Pro. Like we noted back in the post about the Galaxy M Pro, this device appears to be running a version of TouchWiz that looks very similar to what HTC has been using with Sense on the HTC ChaCha - aka the HTC Status Facebook phone.

From the same fellow that appears to have a couple other unreleased Samsung devices in his possession comes this very simple hands-on video of the Samsung Galaxy Y Pro:

This Samsung Galaxy Y Pro is a lower cost version of the Galaxy M Pro, looking to have a smaller display and more than likely a relatively small processor in comparison. Other than that we know not just a whole lot about the Y Pro at the moment - BUT again you can look at it in the video above.
