Samsung apparently has a few new budget friendly mid-range smartphones in the pipelines because today news of two new smartphones have hit the interwebs. What we see below is a new smartphone from Sammy that looks like a fine blend between the Nexus One and the HTC One X, and will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
According to the folks at BriefMobile the Samsung SPH-L300 will be known as the Samsung Goph. And I seriously hope they change that name before launch. It's being reported as a non 4G LTE device headed for the Now Network, and has some decent specs that should make it a great budget device.
While it appears to have an aluminum design, reports are suggesting a brushed aluminum looking plastic body, and the design is a fine blend of the One X and the older Nexus One if you ask me. We're hearing a 4.0-inch AMOLED display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, 5 megapixel camera and NFC capabilities. More photos of this phone and the odd font used in Android 4.0.4 can be seen from the source link above. We'll report back when we learn more details on this new phone.
