Galaxy Premier to launch as Galaxy Pop in South Korea, feature quad-core CPU?


Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Premier as Galaxy Pop, if this post on a Korean forum is to be believed. The phone is identified as SHV-E220 and is planned for a launch in February. Interestingly, the post also claims the phone to have an 1.4GHz Exynos 4412 quad-core unlike the dual-core CPU found on the Galaxy Premier for other markets.

If true, the decision to go quad-core wouldn’t be that surprising considering Samsung recently gave the Korean Galaxy Grand the same quad-core CPU treatment.

Rest of the features are similar like the 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED Display, Android 4.1.2 OS with new TouchWiz UI, 3G/LTE, DMB, 8 0r 16GB internal memory, 8MP and 2MP cameras and 2100mAh battery.

The phone is expected to launch on SKT, KT and LG U+.
