Samsung Galaxy Star Revealed, Looks to Be New Budget Handset


Mobile World Congress is just around the corner, and that means now is the time when many devices seem to get leaked or even officially unveiled right before the show. The latest rumor is all about a low-end Samsung handset under the name Samsung Galaxy Star GT-S5282.

While this could in fact end up being called the Star, it is also speculated that it could actually be the Galaxy Y.

So what kind of specs does this thing pack? Nothing too impressive. The phone has a tiny 3-inch display with a QVGA resolution, 4GB storage, a 2MP camera, microSD, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 1200mAh battery. Its also expected to have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

While I’m personally all for budget devices as a way to reach developing markets or bring in customers who simply don’t need much power out of their handset, I don’t get why nearly all budget devices seem to have 3 or 3.5-inch displays.

Really? Three inches? To each their own I suppose, but this thing would certainly sound a lot more appealing if it had a 4-inch display or higher. I guess that also adds to the cost, to be fair.

What do you think, would you ever consider a budget handset like the Galaxy Star at least as a secondary line or perhaps for a teen or child in your family? Or do you think 3-inch smartphones have worn out their welcome?
