Samsung Unveils Samsung Star II
Samsung Star II (model no. S5260), the successor to the popular Samsung Star has been recently unveiled. However, the new Samsung Star series handset is not drastically different from its predecessor.
Samsung Star II Features
Samsung has added few extra components to the new model. Star II has a capacitive screen and Wi-Fi connectivity – features that were missing in the original Samsung Star.
The 3-inch WQVGA capacitive touch screen display renders standard brightness, colors and contrast. Samsung has given the new phone an accelerometer for automatically rotating images. However, the phone lacks ambient light sensor for automatically adjusting the brightness of the display and proximity sensor for locking the touchscreen automatically during calls.
Samsung has loaded the latest version of TouchWiz user interface in the touch screen feature phone. The advanced interface gives Samsung Star II the feel of Android smartphones.
You can add your favorite widgets on the customizable home screen. Fourteen widgets are pre-loaded on the handset. You can download additional widgets from Samsung App store. Star II supports Java apps and games.
The 3.2-megapixel camera of the feature phone could capture stills and videos. However, it offers limited photography tools. Flash, shutter key and lens protection are absent.
Nonetheless, shutterbugs might appreciate the integrated smile shot, panorama mode, white balance and preset scene features. Samsung Star II features an impressive music player. The DNSe sound technology would enhance your audio experience. The integrated FM radio supports FM recording.
The browser offers bookmarks, history and a most visited site list. It supports one-finger zoom and kinetic scrolling. However, absence of Flash support will prevent the browser from displaying the best contents of your favorite websites. Facebook and Twitter apps are pre-loaded on the handset. Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5mm headset jack and USB 2.0 are present on the feature phone.
You can use Samsung Star II for surfing the web and downloading contents in Wi-Fi zones. It supports up to 16GB of external memory expansion via the microSD card slot. Star II will support key messaging services. It runs on quad band GSM networks.
Samsung Star II will arrive in the retail stores in February with an affordable price tag.
