Samsung has added a new phone in its Galaxy line up. The new phone, called the Galaxy R, is Samsung’s first smartphone powered by the Tegra 2 processor.
Samsung announced that the Galaxy R will be available in Europe and Asia. There is no mention of a North America release yet. The phone is already available in Sweden under the name Galaxy Z.

- Android 2.3 Gingerbread with TouchWhiz 4
- Tegra 2 dual core processor (1GHz)
- 4.2-inch SuperClear LCD screen
- Screen resolution of 480×800 pixels
- 5 MP rear camera and 2 MP front camera
- 720p video recording and 1080p video playback
