$99 Samsung Galaxy Stellar on Verizon to come with 'starter mode'
We’ve gotten to know the Samsung Galaxy Stellar back when it was still being paraded around as the Jasper. Since then, we learned that the Stellar does live up to its name when it comes to the phone’s processor, as it boasts the same Snapdragon S4 chip found on hot items like the Galaxy S3 and One X. Freshly leaked internal documents obtained by Droid Life reveals more juicy bits of the Galaxy Stellar.
Starting with the $99 price, the Galaxy Stellar is bound to take its place on Verizon’s mid-range Android lineup. It’s definitely an attractive price and we can already foresee the phone being discounted early on by various third-party retailers, making it a more delectable offering.
The leak also points that the phone will ship with an “easy-to-use Starter mode” and “on-device help.” We’re not sure what these imply, but the starter mode probably involves a bunch of preset home screens and shortcuts to Amazon apps that Verizon want you to use. One key piece of information that’s still missing from the leak is the release date of the phone on Big Red. But there’s every reason to believe that the Galaxy Stellar will be ready to strut its stuff in the coming weeks.
How does a $99 price tag for the Galaxy Stellar’s 4-inch display, dual-core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4, 1GB RAM, 4GB onboard storage, and 4G LTE radio sound like to you?
