Samsung has just added a new budget dual-SIM Android smartphone to its Galaxy line-up, the Galaxy Star Pro. The device has gone on sale in India from a online retailer HomeShop18.
The Galaxy Star Pro (GT-S5282) features a 4-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display, a 1 GHz single-core Cortex A9 processor coupled with 512 MB RAM. There’s 4 GB internal memory and the memory can be expanded to 32 GB thanks to a microSD card slot. It is 10.6 mm thin and weighs around 121 gms. There’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean along with Samsung’s usual TouchWiz customizations and the device is powered by a 1500 mAh battery.
The budget smartphone also features a 2 MP rear camera, no front facing camera and that’s expected considering the price the device is available on. Samsung Galaxy Star Pro comes with dual-SIM functionality along with Samsung’s Smart dual SIM feature which lets you receive calls from another SIM even if you are on a call on the first SIM, On the connectivity side of things, there’s the usual connectivity options we find on a smartphone but sadly there’s only 2G (EDGE) connectivity on the device.
The Galaxy Star is better version of the Galaxy Star and its good if you want a budget Android smartphone but Samsung needs to up the ante on the lower end considering the great sales of the Lumia 520 (It recently got the title of the best selling Windows device) which is arguably a better value for money smartphone and with the Nokia Lumia 525 on the horizon we would love to see some good stuff from Samsung at the low end. Anyways tell us what you feel of the Galaxy Star Pro..
