The Galaxy Star Pro Duos (excruciating name, by the way) follows on the footsteps of the Galaxy Star (aka GT-S5280), launched back in May as a major contender for the title of ugliest, tiniest, cheapest-looking and most technically underwhelming device ever to run Android Jelly Bean.
Fortunately, the Star Pro Duos (model number GT-S7262) takes its forefather’s specs and features up a notch (or ten), albeit it’s not really enough to call the brand spanking new 4-incher anything more than a modest entry-level handheld.
The design has been completely overhauled (the Galaxy S4 nod is fairly obvious), the display has been bumped both in size and resolution (800 x 480 pixels), 1.5 mm have been shaved off the dude’s thickness, not to mention the battery has been boosted from a 1,200 mAh cell to 1,500 mAh.
Sadly, the on-board processor is the same cringeworthy single-core Cortex A5-based unit, there are 512 MB of RAM to go with it, a pitiful 2 MP rear-facing camera and an outdated Jelly Bean flavor, i.e. Android 4.1.
Oh, well, at least you get dual SIM support and aren’t forced to pay an arm and a leg to get on the Android bandwagon. Quite on the contrary, as Samsung is currently selling the Galaxy Star Pro Duos for the equivalent of $110 in India (Rs. 6,989). No words on a global rollout, but Europe and the rest of Asia are most definitely up next.
