Samsung has added two more basic phone the Guru 1200 and the Guru 1205. These are simple handsets meant for making and receiving calls with some good features. The only difference between the 1205 and the 1200 handset is that the 1205 comes with a built in FM receiver.

Samsung Guru 1200 Features

This single SIM Samsung handset is available in black colour and sports a 1.52 inches display with 128 by 128 pixels resolution. The E1200 weighs 65 grams and is 13.6 mm thin.

This basic handset from Samsung come loaded with Samsung’s own proprietary OS. Nothing too great about it but it comes with simple features and is easy to use. There is an internal memory of 2GB built into the E1200 and that is all, there are no external card slots, and there is really no need for one. Also there is no camera on this phone.

The others features are, it does support Bluetooth and you can do a bit of browsing. This is a 2G phone which comes with some pre-loaded games, loud speakers but with no 3.5 mm audio jack.

This is exactly the copy of the E1200 model with just one additional feature and that is the built in FM radio. Interestingly this handset is just Rs. 100 extra.

Samsung 1205 price in India is Rs. 1,190

I wonder why Samsung created these two models a single model with FM was more than sufficient. There is hardly any price difference and most users will opt for 1205 anyway.
