Samsung also introduced its newest product ambassador, Enrique Gil.

While the device’s specs aren’t that impressive, even for a budget device, it should be enough for casual users who use a smartphone primarily for tasks like browsing the web, and updating their social media accounts. Probably add a few quick snaps here and there and some light games too.
