Samsung today announced four entry-level devices in the new Rex series. The Rex 60, Rex 70, Rex 80 and Rex 90 are affordable feature phones with dual-SIM functionality
Samsung today unveiled four new affordable devices in a the new Rex series. The four models are targeted at emerging countries such as India and China. The four phones run a proprietary OS by Samsung and while it might look like these are smartphones, Samsung call all four feature phones. Samsung Rex 60, Rex 70, Rex 80and Rex 90 have much in common. Such as touch screen, a camera, no 3G support and a small amount of memory (10-20 MB) which can be expanded using a microSD card. A feature that Samsung sees useful for those living in "price-constrained emerging-markets" is the dual-SIM functionality. All four models has two SIM slots and the Rex 70 and Rex 90 can change SIM without powering down the phone. Something Samsung say are ideal for business trips in different coverage areas. We believe business users will buy something else than a very cheap feature phone.
Users interested in buying one of these phones will not be ruined. They are asking 60 Euro for the Rex 60, 63 Euro for the Rex 70, 73 Euro for the Rex 80 and 90 Euro for the Rex 90 model. These models will obviously compete with Nokia's Asha series.
