Samsung and Verizon Wireless have recently announced that the Verizon-exclusive Samsung Galaxy Stellar will launch on Sept. 6 (this Thursday). Although the Samsung Galaxy Stellar isn’t exactly stellar in any particular way, it is one of the cheapest 4G-enabled handsets that you can get from Big Red.
Previously rumored to be priced at $99 on-contract, the Galaxy Stellar will actually be offered for free by Verizon following a $50 mail-in rebate (if you opt to sign a new two-year contract). When it comes to the off-contract price, all we can do is point out towards a leaked Best Buy page for the Galaxy Stellar, one that mentioned a price of $449.
A quick look at the Galaxy Stellar specs sheet shows nothing really impressive, but this does comes of no surprise considering that this is an entry-level Android smartphone. Here are the specs:
The Galaxy Stellar will also feature a Starter Mode interface, one that simplifies basically everything, although the Standard Mode will still allow for the regular Samsung TouchWiz Android interface use.
Another interesting thing about this smartphone is that it is a “Samsung Approved for Enterprise” (SAFE) device, meaning it comes with AES-256 bit encryption, as well as support for Virtual Private Network, Mobile Device Management and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.
