Samsung unveiled its latest affordable handsets including Galaxy Core 2, Ace 4 And Young 2 just a couple of days ago. However, till now, the South Korean smartphone maker did not reveal the pricing of the devices.
The update is that if the formal pricing mentioned at the Samsung Netherlands website is to be believed, the Samsung Galaxy Core 2 would cost around €179 in Europe and if it was to be translated into Indian currency, it would be Rs. 14,627. But the handset's price could vary depending on the market it would be launched.
Specs-wise, Samsung Galaxy Core 2 comes with a 4.5-inch display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core chip and a 2000mAh battery. Other specs include: Android 4.4 KitKat, TouchWiz Essence UI, 5-megapixel auto focus rear camera with LED flash, 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front-facing camera, dual SIM support, 3G HSPA+ connectivity, 768MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
Prices of the other three phones have also been revealed. Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 is reportedly said to be priced at €219, which translates to Rs. 17,905. And the Galaxy Young 2 is expected to be priced at €99 (approx. Rs. 8,094). The price of the Galaxy Star 2 is the only one which has not been estimated so far.
All these Samsung devices are pretty affordable compared to other Android devices, which come powered by Android KitKat OS. There are slim chances of these devices getting launched in India.
But even if it lands in the Indian market, these smartphones will have to face a hard-hitting rivals from domestic vendors like Micromax, Karbonn, Lava and Xolo as these companies are continuously delivering KitKat flavored smartphones to the domestic customers.
