The Samsung Galaxy Apollo was teased over the weekend as “coming soon” to the UK. Orange has decided to let people know that it will offer the Apollo whenever soon comes. EuroDroid has spotted an advertisement for the device, which is now listed as the Samsung Galaxy Apollo i5801 on its website.
The Orange UK website reveals that the Apollo is Samsung’s move away from the high-powered “superphones” that have dominated headlines and hearts among Android enthusiasts. However, the Apollo doesn’t seem weak on paper at all. It’s more of a mid-range device meant for people who want Android but not a juiced-up device (settle down, such people exist).
