Galaxy StarSamsung officially announced the availability of its latest Android phone – Galaxy Star. Dual SIM Galaxy Star is one of most affordable smartphone in country, priced at Rs 5,240 (maximum retail price, street price is approx Rs 4,900). Though priced very pocket-friendly Galaxy Star is packed very well with specs and Android.

With a 3 inch display Galaxy Star (GT-S5282) runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and sports 1GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 2MP rear camera and 1200 mAh battery.
