You can find a 5 Megapixel main camera with LED flash and a 1.3 Megapixel front-facing video call camera.
For enhanced multimedia capability, the Galaxy Express supports DLNA AllShare Play for wireless media streaming and MHL for connecting with HDTV and monitor. The phone supports LTE 800/900/1800/2600, tri-band HSPA+ and quad-band GSM/EDGE mobile networks. It has a microSD card slot foe expansion.
