A few days ago, a smartphone called Samsung Galaxy Buddy 2 appeared on sale in Korea, which was first written about by Gizmochina, and then by everyone else with reference to them.
At first I could not understand why information aboutThis smartphone is not on the Samsung website. But then I realized. She is there. But ... By the way, it's just gorgeous. Note. In the page address, the name of the device is written as “galaxy-m23-5g”. The text title is written in Korean, “갤럭시 버디2”. And why then "Buddy 2"? And this is just a translation from Korean to English. However, the translation is quite official. The name in this form is on the official pictures. But it is not in the text of the site, therefore it is not searched for by the search.
As you may have guessed, the Samsung GalaxyBuddy 2 is a copy of the international smartphone Galaxy M23 5G. And at the same time a copy of the “Indian” Galaxy F23 5G. There is only one SIM card, but unnecessary 5G frequencies in Korea have been bitten off. I don't see any other differences between the devices.
About the characteristics.
The chipset here is Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G. Those.in AnTuTu we are waiting for four hundred thousand points, so in terms of power we have a confident middle class here. But not everything is so rosy. Only 4 GB of RAM, which is quite modest by today's standards. Things are better with permanent memory, 128 GB (plus there is support for memory cards).
The screen is not AMOLED, which, according to Samsung, is the fate of inexpensive devices. But the refresh rate is high, up to 120 Hz. The size is large - 6.6 ″ (105 cm²), the resolution is also at the level - 1080 × 2408 (400 ppi).
The battery is standard, 5000 mAh. Charging is moderately fast, 25W.
The set of cameras is the most common.The front has a resolution of 8 MP. Rear trio 50 + 8 + 2 MP (main, wide-angle, depth sensor). Brands of sensors are not named. But, most likely, Samsung ISOCELL JN1 is in charge here.
Other. NFC module is available. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side. Type-C and a fifth Wi-Fi, of course, are also in place.
And about money. 399,300 won (₽17,800, $301) at launch. Apparently, an exclusive for the Korean operator LG U +.
For comparison, in India, the Galaxy F23 5G can be purchased for ₹15,999 (₽11,900, $201). And the Samsung Galaxy M23 5G in Germany now costs €239 (₽14,200, $240).
