Samsung Galaxy Star 2 is a low-end, dual-SIM smartphone with KitKat on board

Samsung Galaxy Star 2
Samsung is on a roll today. The company just added a whole bunch of Android phones to its roster, and among them is the Samsung Galaxy Star 2. It is described as a "stylish and portable" handset made with single-handed usage in mind, and looking at its specs, it is shaping up as an entry-level, budget-friendly offering.

Design-wise, the Samsung Galaxy Star 2 appears to have been treated to a finish that closely resembles the faux leather found on the Galaxy Note 3. It is a portable handset indeed as it sports a small-ish, 3.5-inch display. Buttons and ports are at their usual locations. As the case is with recent Samsung phones, the Galaxy Star 2 features a physical Home key, along with capacitive buttons for the Back function and for displaying the recent apps. Color options include white and black.

There's not much to be impressed by under the hood. Samsung has equipped the Galaxy Star 2 with a 1GHz single-core processor of unknown make and model, while RAM amount isn't being specified. On the back is placed a very basic, 2-megapixel camera with no flash, and behind the back cover resides a humble, 1300mAh battery. Judging by the screenshots below, we're dealing with a dual-SIM phone.

That the Samsung Galaxy Star 2 comes with Android 4.4 KitKat is good news - there's hope that the software could run fine on this otherwise weak handset. To no surprise, the TouchWiz custom UI experience is also found on the device. It is worth noting that the phone comes with 8 downloadable games by Gameloft.

And that's the Samsung Galaxy Star 2 in a nutshell. All in all, it is a basic phone, and its hardware specs put it straight into the low-end Android category. Still, it could be a worthy pick if priced low enough.
