Star Developer, 08 Sep 2009Yes you are right. This is third version of Star. Star wifi was second, and is available in ... moreI posted about this model in the S5230 comments page a while ago and e-mailed GSMArena about it. They added this model to their database because they verified it's a genuine Samsung model. It was released in Brazil last month and can be bought in a number of online stores in my country. Not a fake chinese piece of garbage.
TechnoFILE-Omnia II, 08 Sep 2009Cuz maybe its only an Asia or china version, GSMARENA write articles and reviews on internatio... morewell if its not released internationally, does that mean it's and inferior model? i don't see the point why release the star wifi only in selected number of countries in asia. i for one am interested in star wifi. but with no reviews about it, i would certainly hesitate to buy it. that would be like buying a china phone, great specs, but easily broken.
me, 08 Sep 2009it is not a china phone! its in brazil too!It may not be a rumour but I do not see any logic into this. Since here in India, we have at most 2 channels (1 national, 1 regional [if m correct]) are Free to Air, it is not going to solve any big purpose. So tough luck Star TV!!!
this phone is already in brazil too!
same thing as the normal star. but has a big antena and TV. but really.. why do you need a tv on your phone for?? its cool though, dont get me wrong!

Anonymous, 07 Sep 2009whats the Star Wifi?they say its a new samsung star with wifi.
model star S5233W. 3 people have confirmed it's real and already available in asia, but how came i can't seem to find any news or article about it. can't even find it in here. hmm maybe gsmarena needs to update its phone lists. or maybe it's a china phone. haha
hard to believe china phones got wifi though..
626, 07 Sep 2009What?!! still no wifi?? no 3g?!!! boooo!! Who needs a damn tv on their phone?!!! Looks like a ... moreare u f**l or wat u want touchscreen + wifi + 3g at 9k (under 10k) this is a budget phone bro buy a expensive one for u.
before asking for feature at least keep the price tag in mind....
i found it a great phone....great features at low price
looks like cheap china-made phone. In my country there have been a lot of phones with TV antenna and tuner; all came from China. Some have a 3 mp camera, touch screen, bluetooth, and even wifi.
What?!! still no wifi?? no 3g?!!! boooo!! Who needs a damn tv on their phone?!!! Looks like a bulky samsung S5230 to me!! With that funny looking antenna on it's side
