It looks like another Samsung Galaxy smartphone will be landing at Verizon Wireless soon, although the Galaxy Stallar won't offer all the bells and whistles like Sammy's latest flagship model, the Galaxy S III, its $100 price tag might get some tongues wagging.
According to information that has leaked out ahead of the launch the Galaxy Stellar 4G LTE is going to be aimed at the budget-minded consumer, as well as first-time smartphone adopters, thanks to its "easy-to-use" Starter Mode, which will supposedly simplify user interaction with Access apps and controls. Shipping with Android 4.0 under the hood, the Stellar 4G will pack an unnamed 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU, a reasonable processor considering the cost of the device.
With a compact design that is said to fit comfortably in hands, the 4-inch smartphone is going to weigh in at 4.73 ounces and will measure 121.92 x 63.75 x 11.94mm. Samsung's next mid-range handset will feature dual cameras, with a 3.2-megapixel shooter that will be housed in the rear and a 1.3-megapixel one in the front, and will sport an 800 x 480 WVGA display.
The Stellar made a short-lived appearance on Best Buy's website, before being quickly taken down, though potential customers be warned, it's probably best to get the device on a Verizon plan, rather than pay the $450 contract-free price from the electronic retailer. Amazon Kindle, Audible and Zappos apps will also be offered on the handset, which will have 4GB internal storage and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
With rumors pegging the Galaxy Stellar 4G LTE with a Sept. 6 release date, it looks like this is heating up to be an exciting month for smartphone fans, as the highly-speculated Apple iPhone 5 is expected to launch Sept. 12.
