Samsung’s decidedly grounded Stellar smartphone just got the official nod from Verizon, launching on Thursday with a $50 price tag (before a $50 mail-in rebate). The “free” handset packs a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon, Ice Cream Sandwich, LTE connectivity, a 4-inch WVGA display an a rather modest image capture duo — a 1.3-megapixel camera up front and an autofocus-capable 3.2-megapixel snapper on the rear. There’s also 802.11n WiFi and support for microSD cards up to 32GB. As unimpressive as they may be, none of these specs comes as a surprise, following the smartphone’s early debut on Best Buy’s site last week. Still, if you’re in the market for an upgrade with a non-existent equipment budget, this little Galaxy may be just what Big Red ordered.
