Samsung really wants to be a jack-of-all-trades, trying to satisfy the mobile needs of everyone. Their next target? The young ones here in the Philippines who want things hip but affordable, like the college students still tied to the allowance their momma gives 'em and the fresh grads and yuppies earning entry-level salaries.
According to Sammy, this market's weapons of choice should be their four new Android smartphones, named Young, Pocket Neo, Fame, and Star—all with quirky features at prices that you'd think were discounted. Check 'em out below.
Samsung Galaxy Fame
This one's actually the most expensive of the bunch, but compared to most other Androids out there, it's a certified cheap-o. For a price tag that won't cost you an arm and a leg, you'll have a handset with a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and autofocus, a 1GHz processor, wireless connectivity over 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, and 4GB of storage for all those selfies, videos, and songs.
Aside from the usual smartphone mix, you'll also get two things that we bet aren't in your phone right now: (1) the S-Beam, a feature which uses NFC or near-field communication for transferring and sharing content and files by just tapping phones together; (2) The Fame also comes up to date with Android Jelly Bean out of the box.

Samsung Galaxy Young
Its name is a dead giveaway for the kinds of peeps it's aimed at. The Young packs a 3.3-inch touchscreen display, a 1GHz CPU, as well as a 3-megapixel shooter in a small, sleek frame that comes in Wine Red, Deep Blue, White, and Metallic Silver.
You'll also get Android Jelly Bean as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for your mobile Facebook needs. And, to set it apart from others in its category, the Young comes with Motion UI. This feature lets you use gestures and motions to do certain things, like scanning for wireless networks by shaking the device or turning it over for muting.
