Samsung Star II S5260 Announced Officially | Mana Blog... for all
Jan 19, 2011

Samsung has officially announced the new Star II smartphone, which is a successor to the Star that sold 30 million units recently. The new Samsung GT-S5260 Star II smartphone features a 3.0-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen display and is practically the same phone as the GT-S5230 Star. The Samsung Star II will release next month in Germany followed by other European countries, CIS, South America, India and Middle East. Although there is no word on the price of this smartphone, we expect it to be somewhere close to the Star model.

Korea IT Times reported about the announcement of Star II. In terms of specifications, Samsung Star II is almost the same phone like the Star handset but there are few changes in it. Star II GT-S5260 carries same 3.0-inch WQVGA capacitive touchscreen with TouchWiz UI 3.0 placed over it. Users can customize the interface by adding a number of widgets to the homescreen. For imaging, it offers a mediocre quality 3.2-megapixel camera. The Star II comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n for wireless connectivity, which is the one feature missing from the Star.

Samsung boasts of the Social Hub support in Star II that offers integration of Social Networks like Facebook and Twitter with the phone data. Also, the multi-IM 2.0 offers flexibility to login into multiple IM accounts like Yahoo, Google Talk, AIM, MSN and Facebook Chat through a single app. It's very similar to what HTC started with its Sense UI on smartphones.

Avid social network users would certainly adore this full-touchscreen handset that offers integration of Social Networks and IMs with the phone data. Typing won't be an issue since Samsung has added its own QuickType T9 Trace Keyboard that is meant to be quite useful while chatting or typing text quickly on the phone.

Samsung Star II GT-S5260 also offers 3.5mm audio port to let you plug your favorite headphones and microSD card slot to add more storage.
