Samsung Galaxy V now available in Malaysia for RM 299

After the Galaxy Mega 2, Samsung Malaysia has once again brought the unannounced Galaxy V to Malaysian market, which means the device is now officially announced.

Priced at RM 299, the Samsung Galaxy V is an entry-level device. The Samsung Galaxy V has a 4" display with unknown resolution, but probably will be 480 x 854 resolution.

The Galaxy V is a dual-SIM device and it has a 3 MP camera at the back with LED flash. There's a VGA front camera too.

Samsung Malaysia didn't reveal much detail of the Galaxy V, but it is powered by 1.2 GHz processor with 512 MB RAM, 4 GB expandable memory and 1,500 mAh battery according to the latest information.

The device is running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box with Samsung TouchWiz UX. However, it seems that the device is not a great deal as the Asus ZenFone 4 is at the same pricing with better specs.
