Mid-range Samsung Galaxy S Advance launches in the UK

First announced way back in January, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance has today launched in the UK, bringing a respectable list of mid-range specs to the table. Inside its curved Galaxy S II-style chassis there's a 1GHz dual-core CPU, 768MB of RAM and a 4-inch SuperAMOLED display, with a 5MP camera on the back and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card). On the software side, the S Advance packs Android 2.3 Gingerbread (yeah, we know) and Samsung's TouchWiz 4 UX.

SIM-free prices start at £322.80 including VAT, and Three UK's also offering it for free on monthly plans starting at £23 per month.

  • This looks like the leaked images of the SGS3, doesn't it?
  • no. All galaxys look the same from the front.
  • This is the leak of the user manual from this morning that I'm referring to.
  • Odd time to release this with their big deal still waiting in the wings.
    All it does is set people up for buyers remorse.
  • Why u no get a Nexus S with ICS instead ? You can get it unlocked at 440 !CAD! (maybe 275GBP)
  • Expandable memory.
  • Agreed
  • S Advanced can upgrade to ICS ?
