Along with the two new entry-level phones, Samsung has also launched the Galaxy Young 2 and Galaxy Star 2 handsets which present themselves as ideal choices for first-time smartphone users. And despite being at the bottom on the portfolio, these devices also come with Android 4.4 KitKat on board and a user-friendly UI.
Let’s start off with the Galaxy Young 2. This compact handset comes with a 3.5-inch HVGA display accompanied by an intuitive UI through the TouchWiz Essence UX which aims to make navigation easier. Along with software enhancements from the company, there are some freebies onboard as well. A total of 8 Gameloft titles are available for download. This phone puts Android KitKat to the test by offering bare minimum specs.
There’s a 1GHz single core Cortex A7 processor powering up the phone. The RAM is pretty decent at 512MB and storage needs are taken care of by 4GB flash memory and a microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB. The handset is dual SIM enabled and it supports HSPA+ 21Mbps networks as well as packs Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios.
Apart from these features, it tags along a 1300mAh battery and a 3MP rear camera. The Galaxy Star 2 isn’t much different from the Young 2. It sports the same design, software and hardware, but the main modification is that the phone doesn’t support 3G networks and the rear camera is a 2MP lens.
Here’s an overview of the specs:
– Android 4.4 KitKat
– 3.5-inch HGVA display
– 512MB RAM, 4GB ROM, 32GB expandable storage
