Samsung just can’t stop itself from launching new Galaxy as the Korean company has just announced another one. Called Galaxy Core, the device is a low- to mid-end smartphone featuring a design similar to that of firm’s flagship Galaxy S 4 and a much lower price tag. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM that should be able to handle multitasking jobs and gaming. There are single SIM and dual SIM Duos versions.
The 800×480 resolution of the phone’s 4.3-inch touchscreen may be low in today’s Full HD smartphone world, but considering its low/mid-range positioning and pricing, this is acceptable. The 5 Megapixel camera has LED flash and there is a VGA front camera. The Core includes a range of shooting modes such as Best Photo, Continuous Shot, Panorama, Smile Shot…etc. For connectivity, the handset supports Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, GPS/AGPS, and you can also find FM radio with RDS. 8GB of internal storage is obviously not enough, but you can insert a microSD card of up to 64GB to store your music and games.
The Galaxy Core runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin. To provide a Galaxy experience, it includes some smart features as well such as Smart Stay that keeps the screen on when a user is looking at the phone; Smart Alert that will tell users about missed calls and messages; Motion UI for activating functions with simple motion command; and S Voice – Samsung’s Siri-like voice command service. ChatOn, Samsung Hub are also pre-loaded.
As mentioned above, the smartphone will come in Single SIM and Dual SIM models. It supports HSUPA 5.76 900/2100 and quad-band GSM/EDGE mobile networks. Duos version will be released first in May, and Single SIM version in July.
