No Samsung Galaxy R for the UK?

No Samsung Galaxy R for the UK?An estimated 98.2% of our news yesterday concerned Samsung, and the Korean manufacturer is back this morning in the form of a Galaxy R update courtesy of Recombu.

We news folk collectively assumed that the Samsung Galaxy R was heading to the UK, but a Sammie spokesperson has suggested that might not, in fact, be the case.

The spokesperson told Recombu: “The Samsung Galaxy R has not been confirmed for the UK Market. However Samsung currently has a range of Galaxy handsets available in the UK, including the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Ace, and is committed to providing a range of smartphones at varied price options to suit different consumer needs.”

The Samsung Galaxy R is essentially an ever-so-slightly more modest version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. The screen is 0.1in smaller and uses cost-effective Super LCD instead of Super AMOLED, the camera is 5MP with 720p video instead of 8MP and 1080p, and it’s a little heavier and thicker thanks to its metallic rear.

Indeed, it sounds like much the same phone as the Samsung Galaxy Z we wrote about a few weeks ago. It’s currently on a boat heading for Sweden.

Well, we won’t hold our breath for the Samsung Galaxy R, but it’ll be more than welcome on these shores if it does show up.
