Star S7180 Samsung Galaxy Note 2 clone with Jelly Bean just $150!


Samsung have really left their mark on the Android phone market this year and as such have accumulated their fair share of knock off and clone phones. The latest is this Samsung Galaxy Note 2 clone which costs just $150 and get’s JB!

The Star S7180 Galaxy Note 2 clone is actually an updated version of Star’s older 5.3-inch phone, but with a faster dual-core MT6577 CPU, which brings with it dual-sim support and snappy performance despite it’s low price, and larger 5.5 inch display.

  • UPDATE: Watch the Star S7180 hands on videos here!

Like similar MTK devices the Star S7180 has 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM, 0.3 mega-pixel front camera and 8 mega-pixel rear with LED flash. However, unlike most similar phones which still run Android 4.0 ICS, this Samsung Galaxy Note 2 clone gets 4.1.1 Jelly Bean which is available rooted for those who like to tweak things to how you like them.


As the Star S7180 hasn’t been officially launched we are still waiting to receive full details, but for those of you who are interested in buying Stars smaller 5.3 inch phone you can check out their Taobao store here.

    Is there a stylus?

  • Jim

    I wonder if it really is running Jelly Bean? The rom could probably get ported to other MT6577 devices

  • Allen

    Andi please can you tell us how do we buy it for this awesome price?

    • I would suggest keeping an eye on their Taobao store for udpates

  • sam

    shame such a large screen only has 960×540 resolution, was hoping for 1280×720 or 1280×800.

    • teja

      its just 150 bucks dude qhd display itself is a great issue .

      • Zaffar

        agree… for such price dont expect too much, infact imho, its super value for your money…

      • Francis.R.

        If it is qhd so i think it has a great price . Usually they put wvga (480×800) in those screens or qhd but for much more bucks.

      oops~ for CPU MTK 6577,the resolution ratio is limited.Currently,MTK 6589 still not availble.i guess you should wait for a while.
