Samsung keeps churning out smartphones as if there’s no tomorrow, stuffing the channels with sometimes marginally different handsets six months after it introduced the previous crop.

The Samsung Galaxy Y is not an exception to this strategy – about half a year since the company launched something like the Samsung Galaxy Mini, for instance, it announced the Galaxy Y, which, according to the new naming scheme, should be an affordable handset for teens or emerging markets.

Some of its specs are marginally better than the Galaxy Mini, like a slightly faster processor and less weight, but the camera is 2MP, for example, against the Galaxy Mini’s 3MP, while the screen resolution is the same (QVGA). The biggest improvement seems to be the Android OS version – we are running Gingerbread on the Galaxy Y, but this is not a huge advantage, as software can always be updated.
