South Korean multinational electronics company Samsung recently announced their latest Android smartphone, called Samsung Galaxy Core. The device is already listed on Saholic under "coming soon" tag. However, the site also says that it will be available by June 15th. Few months ago the device was leaked online and now apparently it has surprised the fans by appearing online at Saholic.
The latest Samsung Galaxy Core has a dual SIM support with a dual GSM standby mode along with a downloadable VoIP client. 2G is taken care by quadband (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) while 3G runs on HSUPA 900/2100. Samsung Galaxy Core also features a noise reduction technology.
Talking about the specs, Samsung Galaxy Core comes with a 4.3-inch TFT LCD touchscreen display with the resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
Samsung Galaxy Core runs on Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) and is equipped with dual-core processing chip clocked to 1.2GHz and backed by 1GB RAM.
Galaxy Core includes a 5-megapixel rear camera with a LED flash, autofocus and has the capability to shoot @30fps. It also sports a frontfacing VGA camera for video calling.
The Galaxy Core comes with the internal storage capacity of 8GB which can be enhanced up to 32 GB via microSD card.
Connectivity options include, GPRS, 3G, Bluetooth, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, EDGE and USB.
The Galaxy Core is powered by Li-ion 1,800 mAh battery for longer life.
Other features include music player, FM radio, Android browser, native IM & social networking. Several other popular functions also feature on this device including S-Voice, Smart and Smart Stay Alert and more.
Reportedly, single SIM version of the device will be up from July, while the dual-SIM version is already listed on Saholic. Samsung Galaxy Core price in countries such as India, USA, UK and many others will be announced soon. However, previous reports suggest that the device would come at the reasonable price of Rs.23,000 in India.
Samsung may have to face the cutthroat competition in the Indian market and if it comes in between the price of Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 25,000, it has to face Nokia Lumia 720 and 820, Sony Xperia P and SP and not to mention Samsung's own devices.
