Samsung announces the Galaxy R Style, a new smartphone for the South Korean market

As if the Galaxy S III wasn’t enough, consumers in South Korea will have another Samsung phone to choose from. Today, Samsung announced that it was launching the Galaxy R Style in South Korea. The Galaxy R Style appears to be the successor to the Galaxy R which was released last year.

The Galaxy R Style features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 960 x 540 resolution, 16GB of internal storage, LTE, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWhiz, a 5-megapixel camera, and more.

Performance wise, the Galaxy R Style features a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm SnapDragon S4 processor with a 2000mAh batter. All of this is packed into a phone that is just 9.79mm thin.

The phone is going to be available in South Korea later this year and will sell for 700,000 won, which is roughly $590. There’s no word on if/when the Galaxy R Style will make its way outside of South Korea. Based on the fact that the Galaxy R was available in Europe, you can expect the R Style to also be offered outside of its home country at some point in the future.
