The MWC (Mobile World Congress) is always an interesting event since brilliant smart phones from all over the world are showcased here. It is a forum to launch new phones, applaud innovation and introduce cutting edge technology. The MWC also sees the unveiling of new and entry level phones with a lot of potential.
Samsung is planning to introduce its new offering, the Galaxy Star, in this event. The Star is a low cost Android Smartphone with a supposed 3 inch screen and QVGA display. The phone is purported to run Android’s latest – 4.1 JellyBean and comes with 4GB inbuilt memory, expandable up to 32GB with a micro SD slot. Connectivity is through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0. The phone also features GPS, Micro USB and a 1200mAh battery so it has a pretty long run before it need to be charged. From the looks and design, the Star seems to be an OS upgrade from the previous Samsung Galaxy Y series. Surprisingly, the new phone has been christened after the original Star phones that Samsung had previously unveiled as its entry level touch screen series. Though Samsung has not revealed any more detail, including its price, judging by its looks and specs, the phone will be priced between the low and the mid range slots. Good features for a budget phone, especially Android OS that is a pleasant surprise for consumers.
The company may not choose to present its entry level Galaxy Star and high end Samsung S4 in the same MWC event. According to rumors, Samsung will host another event to unveil the S4, a fantastic new upgrade to the Galaxy S3.
Interesting exhibits in the Mobile World Congress this year, from the leading players in the industry all over the world.
