Samsung Galaxy Y can run Skype. Its specs are ARMv6 and 832 MHz processor.
skype can run on almost all the android devices starting with OS 2.3 (Gingerbread)
The minimum requirements for making Skype video calls are -
ARMv7 + Neon processor with at least 800 MHz processing power
Android 2.2 (Froyo) or higher
the latest version of Skype for Android
a 3G or WiFi connection*
So,your phone's hardware must be above the specified minimum requirements to have a good call experience.
single or dual core processor?
Since,no processor with 800 MHz existed as a dual core unless it's underclocked(the one in Samsung Galaxy Ace2),so you can safely assume that it's single core.
The Neon is chosen as it's responsible for fluid motion -
Skype video call quality depends greater on which of the two : processor or RAM memory?
Processor as video streaming requires good quality processing power.
no there is no such requirements
The specs you mentioned are for Skype for PC, not Android version :)
you mean shashwat singh's reply about camera or processor?
I answered for your question, not Shashwat's.
Your Camera must support skype as there are many smart phones in market which fulfils this requirement but still doesn't support skype.
Not only clock speed but also manufacturer of processor depends, so Cortex A9 of 800Mhz may support but 1.2 Ghz of unknown manufacturer (or chinese) does not support.
Which specifications for camera would support skype?
He might be referring to non VGA cameras.
1) Android 2.1 or higher
2) At least 27MB of free memory
3) Minimum CPU 800 MHz.
processor dual core?
skype has more compatibility with dual core cpu. Single Core processor are also used.
1 GHz Single core processor with 512 MB RAM
