Verizon Bound Samsung Galaxy Stellar Specs: It’s got Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Dual-Core Processor

Verizon has added a new mid-range Samsung Android device to its repository, called the Galaxy Stellar, which will come with a dual-core processor and run Android 4.0 out of the box. It will go on sale from September 6, for free after a $50 mail-in rebate on a mandatory 2-year contract.

Here are the known specs of the Galaxy Stellar:

  • Dual-core Snapdragon 1.2GHz processor
  • 4-inch WVGA capacitive display
  • 3.2MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • microSD card slot
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE (download speed of up to 12Mb/s) connectivity
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Samsung SAFE certified for business use

The Galaxy Stellar will also feature two homescreen modes – Starter and Standard mode. Starter mode will feature a simple homescreen with preset widgets such as Favorite Apps, Contacts, Settings, and a quick dialer icon. The Standard mode on the other hand will provide the standard Android experience that everyone knows about.

For a device that will cost you nothing in upfront payment, the Galaxy Stellar does have some ‘stellar’ specs (don’t mind the pun), including the 4G LTE connectivity and dual-core processor. So if you’re on the lookout for a cheap Android smartphone that doesn’t cut down on too many specs, the Galaxy Stellar might be a good option.

  1. I have had this phone for 5 days and the touch screen just stopped working. I don’t know if it is a wide-spread problem for all of these or just mine but I am going to replace it as soon as possible. Besides the faulty screen this phone has been great. It runs very smoothly and plays resource demanding apps very fluidly. The only drawback is that it occasionally freezes for about 1 or 2 seconds but that is of no concern to me. I have owned Apple devices and other Android devices and the Samsung Galaxy Stellar is a nice phone for users just starting out to smartphones or new to Android. From my experiences I have found Android to be much fast, more customizable, and generally better than its iOS counterpart.
