Galaxy Y features Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread OS with Samsung's proprietary TouchWiz user interface, and has integrated social networking apps and multimedia features, including Google Voice Search, and 5.1 channel audio enhancements. It also has a standard 3.5 mm 4-pin audio jack. The device sports an 832 MHz ARMv6 processor, 290 MB of internal memory and supports up to 32 GB of removable storage through a microSD card. The phone has a 2 MP camera, a screen with a 240x320 resolution and a multitouch interface with the optional SWYPE virtual keyboard. The phone offers connectivity options such as HSDPA 3G connection up to 7.2 Mbit/s and a Wi-Fi connection. The phone also offers Remote Controls which allows phone to be locked, tracked and data to be wiped remotely. The Galaxy Y originally ran on Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread). An official upgrade to Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread) was released via Samsung Kies and Over-the-air. The Galaxy Y can also be flashed and upgraded with custom ROMs such as CyanogenMod releases (although not officially supported by Samsung). It will run CyanogenMod 7, 9, 11 respectively but it is unofficially supported so there may be stability issues.


The Galaxy Y uses an 832 MHz ARMv6 along with a Broadcom VideoCore IV.


The Galaxy Y features 291MB of RAM and 190 MB of dedicated flash internal storage and has an microSDHC slot (up to 32 GB).


The Galaxy Y uses a 76.2-millimetre (3.00 in) QVGA (240*320) TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen which has a Pixel density (PPI) of 120.


On the back of the device is a 2-megapixel fixed-focus camera without flash that can record videos in up to a maximum QVGA Resolution. Galaxy Y does not have a front-facing camera and not even a secondary microphone for Noise Cancellation.

Model variations

Seven variations of the model exist: S5360L, S5360B (Brazil),[2] S5360T, S5363, S5367, S5368, and S5369. Differences can be in baseband, SAR levels, colour, case design, carrier-branding and lockage. S5360L (Latin America) supports 850 and 1900 MHz UMTS bands.[3] S5363 is typically used as a carrier-rebranded variant by O2.[4] S5369 is a carrier-locked variant for the Italian market.[5]

S5367 is Galaxy Y TV, which was released in April 2012. That model is differentiated by a digital TV receiver; other features different are an included 2 GB MicroSD card, multitouch support, and a 3.15 Mpix camera.[6]

Phone company O2 modified a version of the Galaxy Y into their own model version, the S5363 in their color and applications. But a design fault causes the unit to malfunction and therefore drains the battery power much faster than the original model. By December 2013, this version has been removed from the market and has been scrapped.[citation needed]
