Second-gen R model adds 4.3
Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy R Style, a Korea-bound handset that appears to serve as a successor to the current Galaxy R. The device packs midrange features, including a 4.3-inch display with 960x540 resolution, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, and a five-megapixel camera.
The 9.79mm-thick housing also contains a 2000 mAh battery, upgraded from the first-generation Galaxy R's 1650 mAh cell, along with an LTE radio and 16GB of integrated storage. Samsung's own TouchWiz UI overlay sits atop the core Android 4.0 operating system.
The R Style is expected to arrive later this year in South Korea for 700,000 won (~$593 USD). Launch plans in other markets have yet to be announced.
