It looks like the Galaxy A and Galaxy E series are not just the two line-ups that Samsung is preparing to launch in the upcoming months. A new device has been uncovered just recently. The smartphone named Galaxy Core Prime was listed on the Flipkart, quite ahead of the official announcement and along came the price tag of Rs. 8,499.
This looks pretty much like an entry-level device but looks pretty similar to previously launched Galaxy Core LTE and the Galaxy Core Lite LTE.
In a related news, a new smartphone also got a certification from the FCC. This time we're dealing with a US-bound, entry-level Android smartphone labeled as the Samsung SM-G360P. According to the papers, it is a CDMA phone with LTE support on bands 25, 26, and 41, which makes it compatible with Sprint's cellular network. However, the phone is most likely to pop up on the shelves of Boost Mobile as it is the MVNO's customer service telephone number printed on the handset's FCC label.
Now rumors are that this could be another variant of the one that was leaked in India or the Galaxy Core Prime.
Anyway, irrespective of whether it is the variant of the Galaxy Core Prime or not, the latter's specs have been revealed already. You can check it out below:
Samsung Galaxy Core Prime: Key Specifications
It features a 4.5-inch WVGA PLS LCD display, runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and is 8.8 mm thin. It is equipped with a 5-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, autofocus lens, 1080p video recording, and a 2-megapixel front-facing secondary camera.
The Galaxy Core Prime is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor of unknown make coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM. The storage capacity can be expanded by a microSD card slot (up to 64GB).
As per the information available on the website, which is yet to be confirmed by Samsung, the Galaxy Core Prime would have a single SIM card slot (GSM - 900MHz, 1800MHz), though we would not be surprised if Samsung releases a dual-SIM version of the device.
There are accelerometer, proximity sensor, an ambient light sensor, and a 2,000 mAh battery.
