Samsung Galaxy Feel - NoypiGeeks-1

It looks like major brands are trying to bring back smartphones with a small form factor.

Despite the advancements that big devices have, people are still looking for compact handsets. Smartphones that are easy in the hands and pocketable.

We have already seen Apple release the iPhone SE last year. The device had the wee size body of the 5s, with the 6s power inside. And more than a year after, Sammie is trying to echo it with the Samsung Galaxy Feel.

Unlike the 4-inch screen of the iPhone SE, the Galaxy Feel has a larger 4.7-inch profile. However, that’s still smaller than the smallest 5-inch screen that we see in the market today.

It has dimensions of 138 x 67 x 8.3mm and only weighs 149g. The device was aptly named since it was made to fit nicely in the hands and give you a more relaxing feel of the phone.

The small display will boast a typical Super AMOLED display found in midrange and high-end Samsung devices. However, it only has an HD 1280 x 720 resolution. This might be forgivable since the pixel wouldn’t look so stretched in a small display like this.

Samsung hasn’t revealed the brand of the SoC inside but promised that it has a 1.6GHz octa-core processor. There’s also a slightly generous 3GB of RAM and a spacious 32GB of onboard storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Feel will be running on Android 7.0 Nougat. There’s also a relatively large 3000mAh battery, a capacity that is a standard to larger 5-inch devices.

We have already seen other exclusives before, and they never really went out of its designated territory.

Let’s just hope that Samsung will come up with a device for people who prefer small and compact smartphones.
