Samsung Galaxy Star Advance With Android KitKat Reportedly Launched at Rs. 7,299
July 19, 2014
Soon after launching the Galaxy Core 2, Samsung seems to be gearing up
to launch another budget KitKat smartphone – the Galaxy Star Advance –
if a retailer from Mumbai is to be believed.
Claiming a launch price
of Rs. 7,299, mobile retailer Mahesh Telecom has further listed
some specifications of the Galaxy Star Advance (SM- G350E). It’s worth
noting that we are yet to hear an official announcement about the phone
made by Samsung.
The specifications listed by the retailer for the
yet-to-be-announced Galaxy Star Advance include a 4.3-inch WVGA
(480×800 pixels) TFT display; 1.2GHz dual-core processor; dual-SIM
support; 1.2GHz processor (unspecified chipset); 512MB of RAM;
3-megapixel camera with LED flash; 1800mAh battery, and 4GB of inbuilt
storage, which can be expanded further up to 32GB (via microSD card).
Further, the smartphone is said to come with 3G support and will run
Android KitKat with the company’s TouchWiz UI on top.
Some of the
other features listed for the Galaxy Star Advance are ChatOn, video
recording, Google Talk, Google Maps, Samsung Apps and FM radio recorder.
on Friday, the same retailer provided details about an unannounced LTE
variant of the Galaxy S5. The retailer suggested
an MRP of Rs. 56,000, and also revealed that the Galaxy S5 LTE
(SM-G900I) stocks will be arriving soon.
The handset was said to
be priced Rs. 1,500 (MOP) more than the original 3G, Exynos-based
variant launched in India (SM-G900H), which comes out to be Rs. 53,000
for the alleged Galaxy S5 LTE (SM-G900I) handset, considering that the
Galaxy S5 (SM-G900H) was launched in India at Rs. 51,500. Current
official pricing for the Galaxy S5 (SM-G900H) in India is Rs. 51,000, so
a Rs. 52,500 price tag for the alleged LTE variant is possible.
