Samsung has launched a series of 'smart feature phones' under the moniker of REX. The four touch-screen, dual-SIM models, REX 60, REX 70, REX 80, REX 90, under the series, have been priced between Rs. 4,280 and Rs 6,490.
All the phones support Smart Dual SIM allowing users to receive calls on the standby SIM as call waiting when the user is on a call through the primary SIM. The REX 70 and REX 90 also offer true 'hot swap' for the SIM cards, which essentially means that the user will not need to restart their phones. None of the phones are 3G enabled, however, the REX 80 and REX 90 phones support Wi-Fi connectivity. The company claims that the phones have been developed in India, and will be introduced across other growing markets.
The phones are based on Samsung's own feature phone OS featuring Samsung's Touchwiz User Interface (the company has integrated the same UI on its Galaxy range of Android phones) and support Java apps. The phones come preloaded with Facebook, Twitter, ChatOn, Google Talk and other messaging and social apps. Samsung has also preloaded 10 full version games from Gameloft. All phones also feature an FM radio tuner and support FM recording.
