A year after the launch of the Galaxy Wide 2, Samsung has officially announced its successor — the Galaxy Wide 3.

Like the previous iteration, this device was born through the partnership of Samsung and SK Telecom — which means it’s also exclusive to South Korea just like before. While there’s nothing too special about this line of smartphones, Samsung said that the Galaxy Wide and Galaxy Wide 2 achieved more than 1.3 million units sold since its inception.

The Samsung Galaxy Wide 3 has a 5.5-inch 720p display without any bells and whistles like the notch or 18:9 aspect ratio. It’s a straight-up entry-level smartphone as it’s equipped with a modest 2GB of RAM and octa-core chipset. Meanwhile, both cameras on the front and back have 13-megapixel sensors.
