Smartphone manufacturer Samsung has announced the latest edition to its Galaxy range of Android handsets.

With a 4.65-inch screen, the Galaxy Premier seems to be somewhere in between the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy S3 Mini – size wise anyway.

The screen has a full 720 x 1280 Super AMOLE panel, there’s a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor, and the Premier comes with Android 4.1 jelly Bean.

The smartphone will be available in 8GB and 16GB models, it will come with an 8MP rear facing camera and a 1.9MP front-facing one.

3G, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth are all supported, but surprisingly there is no sign of 4G LTE.

The Galaxy Premier will initially be released in Russia in November, followed by the Ukraine in December. The only price quoted so far is 5,555 Ukrainian Hryvna, which works out at just over £400.

China, South Korea and South East Asia will all get Samsung’s latest offering, but there is no news yet as to whether it will make its way to the UK.
