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. It has 4GB of internal storage and supports microSD cards up to 64GB. 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.
