Triple SIM handsets aren’t new, but they’re still very scarce in the Android ecosystem, which is probably why Samsung has decided to unveil the Galaxy Star Trios with this capability. This device is just like the Optimus L4II and the recently launched Optimus L1 II Tri, where you can have three different cellular numbers functioning on a single device.
The Samsung Galaxy Star Trios has gone official in Brazil where the two LG handsets are already available. The phone is as basic as it can get, even for the entry-level segment. Samsung has designed it with a 3.14-inch display that offers visuals in QVGA 320 x 240p resolution. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been preloaded with Samsung’s own TouchWiz UX.
Powering up the Samsung Galaxy Star Trios is a very outdated Snapdragon S1 processor clocked at 1GHz, the same chip found on WP7 devices. Apart from this, the phone packs 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a 2MP rear camera and a 1300mAh battery. On the upside, it provides access to a wide range of connectivity features such as Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, HSPA, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and more.
More details on the Samsung Galaxy Star Trios can be found on its product page (in Portuguese) which was spotted by PhoneArena. According to the source, the smartphone is available for purchase in Brazil through numerous retailers for approximately $165.
