This Samsung Star Deluxe handset with a 3.5-inch touchscreen is actually a feature phone

The Samsung Star Deluxe Duos S5292 is actually a feature phone, so forget about having access to the plethora of apps at the Play Store from it. There is a modest 312MHz processor ticking inside the little munchkin, along with 128MB of RAM. At least there is Wi-Fi on board, so one should be able to access the web and social networks, albeit to a limited extent. Storage capacity is set at 512MB, but one can add extra with a microSD card. As the name suggests, the Star Deluxe Duos works with tho SIM cards at the same time.
So there you have it: Samsung has a feature phone in stock for us, and an official announcement might not be far off. We have no word regarding pricing yet, but we believe the Star Deluxe Duos will be very affordable.

For a feature phone, that's probably fast.

Probably good 'old' Android from what i can make out of the homescreen...or maybe super light version of Gingerbread. Reminds me of Symbian 60v5 phones...434mhz, 128 ram...but it was enough to run the Symbian though. But it quickly ran out of memory because of the ram. Multi tasking will be an issue with that ram.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that. I feel like you're mincing words. I am under the impression that the Android OS is a smartphone operatiing system only. Therefore, since this is a feature phone, it can't be running Android. It might be running something skinned to look like it, but it can't be Android. I can't answer your question without an answer to mine.

Yea but they could certainly make feature phones that arent just pathetic. There was the Samsung Jet, back in 2009 I think, had a 800mhz processor, which was faster than most smartphones at that time.
