Both smartphones feature almost identical specs, but with a different CPU clockspeed
Samsung has just expanded its lineup of mid-ranged/low end smartphones with the introduction of the new Galaxy Pocket Neo and the Galaxy Star smartphones. Samsung made the news official with a press release on Samsung Tomorrow, the company’s online mouthpiece.
These smartphones won’t impress the spec savvy folk of course, but they have a huge market in Asian and European countries, so it goes without saying that they would sell like hotcakes once available.
Both smartphones feature identical specs, with the only difference being the CPU clockspeed on the devices. The Galaxy Pocket Neo and the Galaxy Star feature a 3-inch display with a resolution of 320×240 pixels. Also on board is a 2MP camera along with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. A microSD card slot is on board too, so storage isn’t an issue.
The Galaxy Pocket Neo packs an 850 MHz single core processor while the Galaxy Star packs a 1 GHz single core processor. And this seems to be the only difference between the two smartphones. Both smartphones feature dual SIM capabilities.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is on board, along with Samsung’s custom user interface. There isn’t any info available on the price of the smartphones, but we should see it priced moderately to fit in well with the mid-ranged/low end tier.
