Samsung Galaxy S2′s smaller brother Galaxy R will feature similar design for lower cost.

There had been rumors before of a Samsung Galaxy phone called “R”, which will be a trimmed down version of S2, for those who want the award winning Galaxy android phone for lesser cost. And now finally we have some info on this budget android device.

Sammy’s Hub obtained a support video for the Samsung Galaxy R phone and posted it online, running through its features. As you’d expect, it looks rather like the Galaxy S2.

The first difference you will notice is that the 4.2-inch Super LCD screen isn’t quite up to the eye-popping standards of the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display on its bigger brother.

The phone reportedly uses a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and packs a five megapixel camera capable of shooting 720p HD video, and appears to pack the exact same software: Android 2.3.

You can check out the demonstration video below; But we will have to wait till official announcement and pricing to give a verdict if the phone will really make a dent in budget minded market or not.
