In Soviet Russia, smartphones choose you! But in modern day Russia, users will soon be able to choose Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S Advance, a device "designed for those who define themselves by the phone they carry." By definition, then, users who tote the Galaxy S Advance will send the message that they're somewhere in between the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II.

The Galaxy S Advance features a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM, up to 16GB of internal storage, 5MP rear-facing camera with auto-focus and LED flash, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB 2.0, and HSPA 14.4Mbps support wrapped in a serving of Gingerbread (Android 2.3) topped with TouchWiz.

"The Galaxy S Advance adds to the successful track record of the Galaxy smartphone range with a phone that combines power and style with all the versatility of Samsung’s Hub services," said JK Shin , President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

Russia will get dibs beginning February, followed by the gradual roll out in CIS, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Southeast and Southwest Asia, Latin America, and China. U.S. availability has not been mentioned.
