The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a low-end smartphone by Samsung Electronics which was released in February 2013. Like all other Samsung Galaxy smartphones, the Galaxy Fame runs on the Android mobile operating system. The phone features a 3.5 inch HVGA LCD touchscreen. Depending on the model, the phone can have variants which have dual-MicroSIM or NFC capabilities. Many users have found the device's capabilities to be basic, seeing it as a low-end smartphone for light users that want some of the functionality of higher end Galaxy devices.
The phone follows the candybar form factor for smartphones, and features a plastic exterior. The Galaxy Fame features a ARM Cortex-A9 1 GHz single-core processor, and comes equipped with 4 gigabytes of internal storage (2GB usable), which can be upgraded to 64 gigabytes through the use of an microSD card. The device features an accelerometer intended to translate natural gestures into commands on the phone; for example, if the phone is ringing and the user turns it face down, it will mute the incoming call, or if the user wishes to update a Bluetooth or wireless internet connection, they can shake the device and it will automatically update. It also features an embedded NFC chip and S-Beam on certain models, which is usually only found on high-end Galaxy devices.
The GT-S6810p is a NFC variant of the Galaxy Fame.
The GT-S6812 is a dual SIM variant of the Galaxy Fame. A model for China Unicom (GT-S6812C) has also been released.
