If you thought Samsung was finished pushing out Galaxy S III clones after launching the Galaxy S Duos, think again.

Samsung has just announced its latest entry, the Galaxy Premier, which sports the well-known look and feel of the Galaxy S III, but includes mid-range specs under the hood. Its prime target? The European and Asian markets.

The handset sports a 4.65-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a dual-core OMAP 4470 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera. Just like Samsung’s other recent devices, the Premier features TouchWiz 4.0 on top of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Samsung promises both 3G and LTE variants of the phone, the latter of which will work on international SIMs and both of which should be able to use VoIP applications.

Some of the Galaxy Premier’s specifications seem similar to the now discontinued Galaxy Nexus. It remains to be seen how well the Galaxy Premier will sale when it launches in the Ukraine next month for the price of 5,555 hryvna (approximately $680 USD). Samsung plans to extend the handset’s reach to South East Asia, China, and Korea in the future.
