First we caught a glimpse of the Samsung Jasper, a mid-range device slated for Big Red. Then Droid Life was leaked a photo of the price card for the Samsung Galaxy Stellar. Now we know they're one and the same,courtesy of a full product listing that has cropped up on Best Buy.

2012-08-27_06h49_20

Though the Stellar is listed as available for store pickup beginning today, it's actually unavailable in stores at this point. That could be because it's before the stores have opened, or because the date was simply entered incorrectly.

The specs match the reported launch price of $100 on contract:

  • Android 4.0 (ICS)
  • 1.2GHz dual-core CPU
  • LTE
  • 4" 800x480 display
  • 3.2MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • Bluetooth
  • TouchWiz UI

No word on RAM or storage, or what specific CPU it packs. Even without that information, it's hard to figure out why the full retail price on this budget device is $50 more than the much better Galaxy Nexus.

One final screenshot of the specs is included below, in case Best Buy pulls the listing.

    MENU BUTTON?!?!

    • Freak4Dell

      I'd seriously consider buying it for that alone.

    • Tommy Thompson

      Until a larger percentage of apps use Google's guidelines for a menu button within the app, a capacitive menu button makes sense.

        Not really, no buttons are the only thing that makes sense with ICS and above. Makes no sense why they are still adding any at all.

        • ProductFRED

          Most apps in the Play Store are not built on the ICS SDK level, meaning they don't give you an in-app menu button, like Chrome on the Galaxy Nexus. So, yeah, it makes sense that Samsung and other manufacturers are still implementing a menu button.

    It is, without doubt, the most hidious phone from Samsung to date.

    Samsung....$450 for this POS?... Really? This won't help your bottom line after the 1 billion you owe Apple

    • ProductFRED

      If you read closely, you'll see the "Unactivated" Price (no contract) is the same as "Our Price", meaning the person put it in their cart without a contract.

      • qak

        Oh yes, I know, but I posted that comment with the cheaper and better no contract Galaxy Nexus in mind

        • Brian Dortch

          yes but I imgine google has something todo with the lower price

  • Mike Yost

    Hardware wise it looks nothing like an iPhone, I guess that's a good thing.

  • fixxmyhead

    I thought "Galaxy" phones were supposed to be their premiere line? Maybe its the "S" that tells you that. Just make 3 lines, premium being Galaxy, midrange being Star, low range being Planet. Idk something where people can have a picture in their mind and see that bigger means the phone is better.
