Samsung is hosting a press event in Delhi today, which looks like a global announcement rather than the launch of the Galaxy S III mini as we earlier thought. Samsung India has just tweeted they are headed to the Samsung REX launch. A little digging around indicates that the REX series would be Samsung’s latest range of feature phones.
From what we hear, the REX series would take on Nokia’s Asha phones, which have proven to be very successful. Nokia has already sold over 14 million Asha phones in less than six months since its announcement. The REX series phones could have a full touch form factor and an Android like user interface.
We are hearing about four devices in the series – REX 60, REX 70, REX 80 and REX 90. We are attending the press conference and will report proceedings as they unravel.
