Android CentralThree UK has announced that it'll offer the Samsung Galaxy Fame for sale in the near future. The Galaxy Fame was one of two devices recently announced by the Korean manufacturer, which expects to start shipping it starting next month.

Like all Samsung's entry-level offerings, the Galaxy Fame looks like a shrunken Galaxy S3, complete with curved chassis and prominent clicky home button. The internals are pretty basic, though -- the Fame is powered by a 1GHz CPU with 512MB of RAM, a 3.5-inch HVGA screen and a 5MP rear camera. There's 4 gigabytes of storage included, along with a microSD slot.

Despite its relatively basic innards, the Galaxy Fame is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, which should be able to eke  as much performance as possible out of the phone's hardware.

There's no word on Three-specific availability or pricing, but we imagine this kind of device will be free on most contracts, and relatively inexpensive to buy outright.
