A leading mobile handset provider, Samsung Electronics Co. has just announced two new touch screen phones - Star 3 and Star 3 DUOS, the latest addition to its well-known Star range of handsets. Both devices come with 3-inch (320 x 240 pixels) TFT LCD touch screen plus 3.2 Megapixel Fixed Focus camera. They are entry-level feature phones that aspire to deliver simplified user experience at an extremely affordable price tag. Both gadgets are quite compact measuring 102x58x11.5mm and weighing only 95 grams. There is certainly no difference among the two models excluding the fact that the Star 3 Duos (as the name indicates) comes with dual-SIM functionality.
The Samsung Star 3 and Star 3 DUOS feature superior social networking services and communication capabilities, strong multimedia playback with sleek and stylish design. The interface of the device features just essential keys while leaving input mainly to touch. For socially-connected users who depend on their handset for playing, storing and sharing multimedia content on the go, these phones are the perfect choices. The Star 3 and Star 3 DUOS have a full range of entertainment options accessible despite the location. A built-in music player allows users to access and play their desired music titles from a sole device. Moreover, embedded WiFi 802.11 functionality provides fast speeds for simple web browsing and content downloading. The battery is 1,000mAh.
Other features consist of a microSD slot, run on the company's most recent TouchWiz UI, and- connectivity features like quad-band EDGE, Bluetooth 3.0, FM radio, a 3.5mm audio jack. Surprisingly, 3G and GPS are the big ones missing here. The handsets also come pre-loaded with Samsung’s ChatOn communication service and different other IM services including Yahoo!, Google Talk, MSN, Facebook and Twitter. Until now there is no official word on pricing, although Samsung stated that it plans on making the Star 3 and Star 3 DUOS obtainable in Russia in late January and then slowly rolling out in Europe, CIS, Africa, Middle East, Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Southwest Asia shortly after.
