Samsung's Galaxy Win 2 packs a 64-bit processor and LTE

There was a time not long ago where a 64-bit processor was considered the mark of a high-end phone. But with chips like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 around, 64 bits are the domain of the flagship anymore. In fact, they're hitting the entry level, as evidenced by the Samsung Galaxy Win 2. The new low-end Samsung smartphone isn't a high-powered device, but it offers decent-enough specs and looks to be a worthy follow-up to the original Galaxy Win.

The phone is fronted by a 4.5-inch 480x800 display, overtop the aforementioned quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage (with microSD expansion included). The front camera's a 2MP unit, while you'll find 5 megapixels around back. As is usual for devices in this market, the Galaxy Win 2 offers dual-SIM and digital TV support, though in this case it also throws in LTE connectivity. All of this is slipped into a respectable 8.8mm frame.

How much for such a device? Around US$230. It's worth noting thanks taxes and import tariffs on smartphones in Brazil are quite high, so even phones like the LTE-capable Moto G run upwards of US$270 in Brazil.
