Samsung has recently announced two new entry-level smartphones. The handsets include the Galaxy Pocket Neo and the Galaxy Star. So far aside from both handsets being what we would consider entry-level, they each share some common specs — namely with the size of the display. Both the Galaxy Pocket Neo and the Galaxy Star have 3.0-inch QVGA TFT displays.

These devices will arrive running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and with other shared specs to include 4GB of internal storage space, 512MB of RAM, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 1200 mAh battery and a 2 megapixel rear-facing camera. They will each also have a microSD card slot with support for cards up to 32GB in size.

The one differentiating feature between the Galaxy Pocket Neo (pictured above) and the Galaxy Star (pictured below) is with the processor. The Galaxy Pocket Neo has an 850MHz processor while the Galaxy Star has an ever so slightly nicer 1GHz processor. Samsung has said these handsets will be perfect for the “younger generation of mobile users” however we feel that these will be appreciated by those who will not, or cannot spend all that much, but still want a smartphone.


Another feature that is shared across both handsets will be with the SIM cards. Both the Galaxy Pocket Neo and the Galaxy Star will have dual-SIM support which means those who make the purchase will be able to have two active SIM cards. And due to the Always On feature, both SIM cards will be active and available at all times. That all being said, while Samsung has detailed both models, they have yet to release anything in terms of pricing and availability details.
