Verizon Wireless and Samsung announced a new budget-friendly smartphone that comes with a good amount of features and respectable specs. The new Samsung Galaxy Stellar will be available starting September 6. This smartphone comes with 4G LTE connectivity as well as dual interfaces to cater to everyone—whether you're a first-time smartphone user or a more advanced Android user.
Recognizing that even novice users may need to meet strict security requirements for their business, Samsung made the Galaxy Stellar a SAFE (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) approved device, meaning it has on-device AES 256-bit encryption, support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, and support for leading VPN and MDM solutions.
As far as the hardware is concerned, the Galaxy Stellar isn't a total bare-bones device. You'll find a 4-inch display (800 x 480), 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, Android 4.0, and a microSD card slot in this phone. The 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera isn't exactly high-end, but what do you expect from a phone that's free after rebates and with a two-year contract?
