At Least Five New Samsung Galaxy Models Coming in 2013?

By Gary Cutlack on at

A Samsung roadmap for the first half of 2013 has been spotted, showing us at least five new models from its forthcoming Android range. Some we know, some we don't.

According to leaked documents stuck online by Technobuffalo, we can expect to see the already mentioned Galaxy Note 8.0 joined by the "entry-level" 3" Galaxy Young, plus the even more, er, "affordable" Galaxy Pocket Plus, a super-cheap model that'll arrive with a 2.8" display and an 850Mhz single-core processor. That's your £49.99 model for the ASDA mums.

There will also be a Galaxy X Cover 2, an updated version of the outdoorsy smartphone with IP ratings for dust and waterproofing, plus the Galaxy Grand, an odd 5" machine with a low-end 800 x 480 resolution display.

No mention is made of the Galaxy S4. Presumably that's important enough to get a PowerPoint document all to itself. New reports claim that the 2013 Galaxy S series update is currently being developed under the code name "Altius" and is being prepped for a reveal at Mobile World Congress this February, or a little later at a Samsung event in March.
