Following the success of Galaxy line, Samsung introduces the new REX Series of smart feature phones. Competing head to head with Nokia’s Asha series, the REX handsets are built to “evolve mobile communications in emerging markets.” The new REX line includes four phones, the REX 90, REX 80, REX 70, and REX 60. All these Java-based full-touch feature phones feature TouchWiz user interface, and are available in dual-SIM options.
First of all, the REX 90 is the top model in the range featuring a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, a 3.2 Megapixel camera. The REX 80 and REX 70 both havea 3-inch QVGA display, with the former gets a 3.2 Megapixel camera and the latter comes with a lower-resolution 2 Megapixel camera. The REX 60 is the smallest model with a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen and a 1.3 Megapixel camera. With only 10MB of internal memory, the REX 90 and REX 70 supports microSD card up to 32GB, while the other two models can handle only 16GB microSD.
Intended to bring the web to emerging markets, the REX handsets all support WiFi 802.11b/g/n connectivity, though they work only on quad-band EDGE mobile networks. To keep users stay connected, all four devices come pre-loaded with Samsung’s own ChatOn IM, Yahoo Messenger, Gtalk as well as Facebook and Twitter. You can also find Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 2.0 connections.
Samsung’s REX line has the same curved design like the Galaxy range. They are compact to hold and operate in one hand comfortably.
