South Korean consumer electronics giant company Samsung is gearing up for the launch of another Android-based cellular device that will apparently cater to the other sectors of the population across the globe. This time, Samsung Mobile is rumored to out a new Samsung Galaxy, which is a slightly downgraded version of the tech firm’s flagship smartphone – Samsung Galaxy S III.
