South Korean smartphone giant Samsung may just have been fresh out of launching the brand new Galaxy Core Advance in South Korea, but that hasn't made the company rest on its laurels and wait a while before releasing a new device. Now, as expected, the company is already prepared with a new device.
According to reports, Samsung has officially announced a brand new Galaxy Core LTE/4G, which is basically a low-end smartphone targeted at users who are looking for super-fast internet data speeds, rather than high-end specifications.
Likely to be featured at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) event that's set to take place in Barcelona, Spain next week, the Galaxy Core LTE - as the name suggests - has been developed primarily to make the most out of super-fast LTE speeds that offer blazing fast internet.
As far as device specifications are concerned, the Galaxy Core LTE is a 4.5-inch device rendering 960 x 540 pixels with a PLS TFT display. Since the device's only focus is at offering blazing fast data speeds, Samsung has equipped the device with just a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
Apart from that, the Galaxy Core LTE, which comes with an LTE Category 4 modem that allows users to download at 150 Mbit/sec, sports 1 GB of RAM that's coupled by 8 GB of internal memory along with a micro-SD slot to accommodate an additional 64 GB.
There is a also a 5 MP primary snapper present with LED flash, autofocus and full-HD recording, assisted by a front-facing VGA shooter and a 2,100 mAh battery. Connectivity is taken care of via LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 and NFC.
Lastly, device runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean that's assisted by a host of Samsung utilities like S Voice, S Translator, S Beam, ChatON, Easy Mode, Easy Text and others.
Samsung, as of now, has only mentioned that the device will be available across Europe and Russia, apart from a few countries in Asia. Pricing details are yet to be revealed.
