Targeted towards those on a budget, the Galaxy Core looks similar to the Galaxy S3 and S3 mini, but features slightly lower specifications in order to achieve a low price point. Two versions will be available – single and dual SIM – to suit various markets around the world.
The Core will run Samsung’s software combination from last year of Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and the Motion user interface. This will include a number of Samsung’s Smart features, with S Voice, Smart Alert and Smart Stay all confirmed to be in the mix.
Powering Samsung’s latest affordable Android is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, with HSPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity along with an FM receiver all built in. The display measures 4.3-inches and features a WVGA resolution, which is 800 x 480 pixels.
You’ve also got 8GB of internal memory augmented by a micro SD card slot, a 1,800 mAh battery and dual cameras in the form of a 5MP sensor on the back and a VGA front camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Core should reach various global markets over the next month.
