Last week we saw LG unveil the Optimus L1 II Tri, a triple SIM, low-end ultra-affordable smartphone that hit the shelves in many independent retail stores in Brazil for $127 off-contract. Samsung has responded by unveiling the Galaxy Star Trios — a rival triple SIM smartphone designed exclusively to compete with the L1 II Tri in Brazil.

In terms of internals, it’s pretty safe to say that both handsets are identical. The Galaxy Star Trios, like the L1 II Tri, packs a 3.1-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 240×320 pixels, a Qualcomm MSM7225A Snapdragon chipset powered by a single 1GHz Cortex A5 central processing unit, an Adreno 200 GPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory (expandable up to 32GB via microSD), a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1,300 mAh Li-Ion battery.

Samsung’s Star Trio runs the latest build of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean skinned with the previous version of its TouchWiz custom user interface, which the South Korean company claims ‘is the easier way to use your device, giving you intuitive control over everyday tasks.

The Galaxy Star Trios is already on sale in Brazil for $165 — that’s $38 more than LG is charging for its triple-SIM Optimus L1 II Tri.
