While the official launch of the Galaxy Core 2 that is listed on the Samsung India eStore is eagerly awaited, it appears like the South Korean tech giant is planning to announce another device. The handset in question is the Samsung Galaxy Star Advance that is available from the retailer Mahesh Telecom.
According to the post made by the entrusted retailer, the Galaxy Star Advance will arrive with standard specifications such as a 4.3 inch LCD display boasting WVGA resolution of 480×800 pixels and employ a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor supplemented with a meager 512 MB of RAM. Fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat, the device will packs a basic 3 MP main camera at its rear with LED flash.
To meet the storage demands, the Galaxy Star Advance bundles 4 GB of native storage capacity that can in turn be expanded by means of a micro SD card. For connectivity, there are features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and 3G and a 1,800 mAh battery is provided to energize it.
Similar to the other entry-level smartphones unleashed by Samsung off-late, this handset also features a leather-like back cover. Also, it is claimed to arrive in Black and White color variants for a price tag of Rs 7,299 while its MRP will be Rs 9,400.
Such a high price tag for a basic smartphone devoid a front-facer is definitely a downside and we doubt if the device will attract the consumers as there are power packed devices launched by other vendors in this pricing.
