Samsung Galaxy Star GT-S5282 To Replace Galaxy Young GT-S5360
It seems that Samsung will be rebooting its Galaxy Star lineup in the form of Samsung Galaxy Star GT-S5282. The Galaxy Star is said to be an entry level Android smartphone that will be replacing the current popular Samsung Galaxy Y. But it will be running on Android Jelly Bean out of the box.
According to sammobile’s report, the Galaxy Star GT-S5282 is a low-end Galaxy device that will come in a Scarlet Black color. The Galaxy Star will sport a 3-inch display with QVGA resolution, a rear facing 2 megapixel camera, 4GB internal memory with expandable memory via microSD up to 32GB.
The Samsung Galaxy Star GT-S5282 will also feature a Micro USB, WiFi connectivity, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and a battery with 1200 mAh. Judging on the specs alone, this is really an entry level smartphone. The price might be similar to Galaxy Y when it was first released.
The Galaxy Star might have a chance to become the next Galaxy Y globally, but I wonder how will it par with local smartphone brands like Starmobile, My Phone and Cherry Mobile. They are offering a pretty decent smartphone, with decent to great specs at an affordable price. Example Starmobile’s Crystal, MyPhone A919, or Cherry Mobile Titan. Let’s just wait and see.
The Galaxy Star is expected to be officially released in stores in week 15, that’s probably this comping April 2013, more or less. It’s also expected that the device will be featured at the coming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
