Samsung has launched two budget handsets last month – Galaxy Star Duos and Galaxy Pocket Neo, both are dual sim android phones sporting the latest Jelly Bean OS, but the former being dual sim without 3G, the latter comes with 3G. These are budget handsets and have already been listed on official Samsung India Estore website, but without any price tag. However, online retailer, Infibeam, has listed Galaxy Star Duos for sale at Rs.4,990.
This phone is also also listed on Flipkart for Rs.4598 only, but unfortunately it’s not in stock on Flipkart, which means that Flipkart has not yet started selling the handset, but are definitely awaiting stocks in coming days and therefore, have specified the given price. (Update: Now, Flipkart is also selling this phone at 4,990 INR). For the price information, thanks to our phone price finder tool which brought to us its price.
Apart from the two online retailers listed above, we didn’t find it listed on any other major online retailers, but we expect it to be available soon on more retailers online as well as in brick and mortar stores i.e. in your local market. If it becomes available on more shopping destination, you can keep track of that by going to this page for the latest Galaxy Star Duos Price. However, Galaxy Pocket Neo is still not available on any of the online retailers, we’ll keep an eye on its availability. You can also keep an eye on its availability by going to this page – Galaxy Pocket Neo Price as the page will be updated when the handset becomes available in India.
Talking about features of Galaxy Star, it’s is the first Samsung android handset with reasonable specifications and reasonable pricing of under Rs.5000. If you’ve been waiting to get dual sim android handset from brands like Samsung at cheap price, this phone is definitely attractive buy. This competes with low-cost dual sim android phones from Micromax, Karbonn, Lava, etc. Also, it comes with Android Jelly Bean OS, which is usually less seen on under Rs.5000 priced handsets. If you want 3G feature, you might want to wait for Galaxy Pocket Neo.
