Samsung Galaxy Express, the real mini SGS3

Samsung has launched the Samsung Galaxy Express, a new 4G LTE smartphone, a month ahead of Mobile World Congress at the end of February.

The new model will supposedly be a "feature-rich multimedia powerhouse that makes 4G LTE’s dazzlingly fast network accessible to everyone".

Not to be mistaken for the 4:15 to Paddington, the new phone will come with all the usual tricks you would expect from the Galaxy range, without encroaching too much on the company's flagship - the Samsung Galaxy S III - although at first glance you would be forgiven in thinking so.

It will sport a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen rather than a 4.8-inch display as found on the SGS3, be powered by Android Jelly Bean with TouchWiz, and have a 1.2GHz dual core processor with 1GB RAM.

Camera-wise there will be a rather standard 5-megapixel camera, and a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera too.

It will also come with S Beam, A-GPS, Glonass, Bluetooth 4.0, 8GB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot so you can expand it by a further 32GB.

A 2,000mAh battery should give you plenty of power to get you through the day.
