We are slowly but surely learning all the details about Samsung’s still unannounced Galaxy Stellar 4G LTE smartphone. The device is headed to Verizon and has leaked more than a few times including the full photo below thanks to Best Buy Mobile. Today a new leak claims it will be available come September 6th from Big Red.
The folks from Engadget managed to get their hands on a leaked document or two that sheds light on Samsung and Verizon’s plans for the smartphone. While both companies are being tight lipped, we now know plenty about the device. It sure isn’t anything top of the line and will make a great mid-range back to school phone — and just in time too.
Previous reports have confirmed the device will launch for just $99 as a budget minded device for first time smartphone buyers, but some details still have us a bit puzzled. For one the earlier leaks hint strongly about getting apps from the Amazon App Store, not Google’s, so that’s a thing we are still interested in hearing more about.
As far as specs this device comes with a 4.0-inch WVGA 480 x 800 resolution display, a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, 3.2 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 front and 4GB of internal storage and Android 4.0 ICS. The device is certainly aimed and priced at first time smartphone buyers and even comes with something Sammy is calling “starter mode” that should help with noobies to the smartphone world.
For just $99 is this smartphone worth the price? We’ll have to wait for all the official details from Verizon and Samsung to truly know.
