A much rumored Galaxy Core Lite smartphone from Samsung was finally announced at a special press event in Taiwan yesterday. It is an impressive entry-level Android smartphone, which will be priced at 7,988 TWD (approx. Rs. 15,771). Samsung said that the smartphone will start selling it in this country later this month. However, it didn't confirm the release of the handset in other markets at the event.
In terms of specs, the Galaxy Core Lite smartphone, which is reportedly said to hit the market shelves with a model number SM-G3586, features a 4.7-inch touchscreen display capable of offering a WVGA (480 x 800 pixels) resolution.
The smartphone is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. According to PhoneArena, it comes to the market with support for 4G LTE networks, something that is rarely seen on WVGA Samsung phones. Although the handset was launched with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Version, Samsung might soon update the phone with Android KitKat 4.4.
Even in camera aspect, the handset is pretty amazing, as it features a 5-megapixel camera on the back, with LED flash. The handset should offer at least HD video recording capabilities to its users. However, the company has not mentioned any details on the front facing shooter.
The Galaxy Core Lite also features an 8GB of internal memory, most probably complemented by a microSD memory card slot. It is powered by a 2000 mAh battery inside, as well as with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity capabilities and NFC.
