After already launching two variants of the Galaxy Core smartphones in the past, now it seems like the South Korean smartphone giant is also looking to launch one more device with the same name. The device is set to be called the Galaxy Core 2.
Thus it is possibly the successor of the Galaxy Core. The previously launched Galaxy Core devices were exactly similar in terms of specs and the only difference was the LTE connectivity option in one, while the other came with 3G support.
According to the Russian site HiTechMail.ru, which has leaked the image of the alleged Galaxy Core 2 smartphone, it is a mid-range handset with a Dual SIM support and comes with a model name SM-G355H.
The smartphone is still somewhat similar to its predecessors. Thus it is not much impressive but for average smartphone users, the device is pretty decent. It will come with a 4.5-inch WVGA ( 480 x 800 pixels) display and will be powered by a quad-core chipset clocked at 1.2GHz coupled with a 512MB of RAM. Despite the less RAM clock, you will still get Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
There is also a 5-megapixel camera on the rear side along with a LED flash and video recording capability. You will also find a front facing VGA shooter for making video calls and taking selfies.
Samsung has reportedly used a 4GB of onboard storage unit and there is a microSD card support for memory expansion can also be found. Lastly, according to the recent leaks it will be powered by 2,000mAh battery.
The Galaxy Core 2 is expected to make its way in Russia mid-May (we are expecting it on May 20) and the rumors are that it will be priced around $277 (approx. Rs. 16,797). Other markets are expected to follow after its launch in Russia, although no specific markets were mentioned so we can't be sure if the handset will make its way stateside.
