Putting an end to another series of rumors, Verizon Wireless has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy Stellar. The handset will be joining the budget lineup. In fact, it will be joining the free lineup. The Galaxy Stellar will be available for free (after a $50 mail-in rebate and along with a two-year agreement) beginning on September 6th.
As far as the specs go, the Galaxy Stellar is a 4G LTE device that is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The handset will be sporting a 4-inch (800 x 480) touchscreen along with a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and a 3.2 megapixel rear-facing camera. Some of the other perks include Samsung goodies such as access to the Samsung Media Hub and the SAFE (Samsung Approved for Enterprise) certification.
“The Galaxy Stellar is a SAFE (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) approved device featuring on-device AES 256-bit encryption, enhanced support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and support for industry-leading Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions to make working on the go secure.”
Bottom line here, the Galaxy Stellar is certainly not the most exciting Android handset available with Verizon, but at the same time — it does appear to have a decent set of specs and a more than reasonable price tag.
