Samsung presents GALAXY Star and GALAXY Pocket Neo


April  3, 2013

Samsung targets the youth with smart features, dual SIM connectivity, a variety of apps and multimedia content, and stylish design



SEOUL, Korea, April 3, 2013 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, today announced the introduction of the GALAXY Star and GALAXY Pocket Neo, featuring powerful performance, intelligent features and enhanced dual SIM functionality to provide exceptional connectivity and entertainment. Perfect for the younger generation of mobile users, the GALAXY Star and GALAXY Pocket Neo are designed with a stylish, compact form factor and packed with the latest Android user experience, intuitive navigation and multimedia and content sharing possibilities. 


Features include:

   • Stylish and Compact Form Factor: Both devices feature a compact, curved form factor to easily fit in your pocket or 
      small bag and natural to operate using one hand. Their smooth clean lines and stylish yet sophisticated design 
      make the perfect complement to work or personal life. 

   • Superior Performance: The GALAXY Star and GALAXY Pocket Neo are powered by a 1GHz and 850 MHz processor, 
      respectively, for powerful performance, smooth UI transitions and fast internet, which makes watching videos, 
      navigating apps, playing games, surfing the web and multitasking quick and effortless. Both devices also feature 4GB 
      of internal storage with up to 32GB of expandable memory to store all your favorite apps, music, videos, photos and 
      more. 

   • Rich, Interactive User Experience: Combining Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) experience with the user-friendly Touchwiz 
      interface, the GALAXY Star and GALAXY Pocket Neo allow you to easily navigate the device, switch between apps, 
      take and share photos and customize the home screen with just a few taps. The advanced software also facilitates 
      more efficient CPU use for improved battery life, meaning users can enjoy longer talk time and multimedia use. 
      Built-in widgets offer one-click shortcuts to weather and other recently-used applications for quick and easy access to 
      real-time notifications. Enhanced with intuitive motion UI, both devices can detect simple movements to intelligently 
      complete common tasks. When unavailable to accept a call, users can simply flip over the device to mute the ringer. 
      Users can also scan the Bluetooth connected devices or wireless access points by simply shaking the devices.

   • Reliable Dual SIM Connectivity: Whether using the device for work or play, the GALAXY Star and GALAXY Pocket Neo
      provide customers the flexibility and added convenience of two phone numbers for calling, texting and web usage 
      through their Dual SIM functionality that includes intuitive settings for easy call and security management. Utilizing the 
      Always On feature, there’s no reason to miss a call with call forwarding to the other SIM even while you’re on the 
      phone using the other. Dual SIM is perfect for those using their device for business and personal purposes or those 
      looking for more flexibility between calling plans and coverage areas. On top of that, with its enhanced UX called 
      Quick Panel and Widget, switching SIMs on a home screen has never been easier than before. Users can even 
      choose one of numbers when they send a text message as there are two different sending buttons for two numbers 
      on the same page. The availability of Single SIM version or Dual SIM version varies by markets
