The upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy Lite i5700, initially slated for this October, appears to have now been pushed back to early next year. Speculation has suggested that an imminent release of the Galaxy Lite may have hurt the sales of the company's first Android handset, the more richly specified Galaxy i7500.
The Galaxy Lite, which has now been pictured in a black and red livery to join the already seen white colouring, includes a 3in touchscreen packing in 320 x 480 pixels. This Android-based phone, that also includes a TouchWiz user interface, supports GPRS, EDGE and HSDPA for fast data transfers, according to the Samsung Hub website. Other features include GPS, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0, a 3.2-megapixel camera and a 3.5mm headphone socket. Internal memory is restricted to just 200MB but can be expanded to a total of 32GB via a microSD card slot.
