BRASILIA, BRAZIL – Samsung has launched a new low-end smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Star Trio, that can support three SIMs all at once.
Just like LG, who released the LG Optimus L1 II Tri in Brazil earlier this month, Samsung is shipping Galaxy Star Trios to the same market. Clealry handsets with multiple SIM cards are popular in this area.
The Galaxy Star Trio looks similar to Galaxy Star S5280, but is upgraded. Nevertheless, comparing it with LG Optimus L1 II Tri, many of the specs are actually alike. Both phones are powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a single-core 1GHz snapdragon S1 chipset. The devices feature HSDPA and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n with a 2MP camera at the back.
For the memory, each of the phones has 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal capacity which is expandable.
However, there are about three things that differ between them. Firstly, the 3.14-inch QVGA screen on Galaxy Trio is slightly larger than 3-inches TFT display on its competitor.
Yet, the LG Optimus L1 II Tri has a bigger battery of 1540 mAh than 1300 mAh battery in Trio. Lastly, the former is much cheaper than the rival from Samsung costing about $165.
