Just when you thought there wasn’t any more room in the Smartphone universe for another Galaxy, Samsung comes along and shows off another. This one known as the Core, is a budget version, designed to offer a functional contemporary handset for a smaller fee than it’s bigger brothers.
Thanks to the TechRadar breakdown, we know it comes with a 4.3 inch, 480 x 800 pixel display and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The interface will be familiar to anyone that’s used a Galaxy phone before. Internally it’s packing a 1.2GHZ dual-core CPU, a single 1GB of memory and 8GB of flash storage. If you want a little extra breathing room though, this can be expanded by a further 64GB in the form of an microSD card.
The most notable feature of the Core however, is that it includes dual-sim support, letting users access both sims without the need to restart the device. This won’t be a standard feature though, there will in-fact be two versions of the Core (so that’s technically two new Galaxy handsets to add to Samsung’s already long list of Galaxies): one that’s a single sim and one dual-sim.
Camera wise, both versions of the Core come with a 5-megapixel affair, featuring an LED flash. Videos record at a maximum of 480p.
KitGuru Says: Being in-front of a PC all day has always made it seem unnecessary for me to remain fully up to date with phones. My Galaxy SII still feels like a masterpiece compared to what I had last year.
