Samsung is known for flooding the market with its devices! A new device has been added to the Galaxy smartphone family, the budget-friendly Galaxy Core for those who can’t simply afford the sky high prices of the recently-launched Galaxy S4 or the upcoming Galaxy Note 3. This newest addition can be a delight for thebudget users.
The Samsung Galaxy Core is a low- to mid-range model with a 4.3″ WVGA (480 x 800) display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM. The extra RAM compared to fully budget models, which typically pack 512MB, will aid in multi-tasking, but the processor doesn’t pack enough juice for high end mobile games and may bug those who do a lot of mobile gaming. The 8GB of internal storage can be expanded through a micro-SD card slot, offering up to 64GB of additional capacity.
As the device is running the last-generation Android 4.1 ‘Jelly Bean’ software, and not the latest Android 4.2, buyers will miss out on the ‘photosphere’ shooting mode introduced by Google to the latest version – but it’s likely that Samsung will release an upgrade for the Galaxy Core in the near future.The handset also includes 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, and GPS radios, along with an FM radio with RDS support.
Around the back, we have an another entry-level component – a 5-megapixel camera. Meanwhile its 1.800mAh battery should be more than adequate given the Galaxy Core’s modest display and processor.
Although the Samsung Galaxy Core’s hardware is fairly modest, some of its custom software features are clearly borrowed from the new Samsung Galaxy S4.
These include Smart Stay, which recognizes when a user is looking at the phone and dims the screen when they are not. Smart Alert detects when the handset has been picked up and provides missed call and message alerts at this point.
Motion UX lets you use simple motion commands to initiate basic functions like refresh or mute, and S Voice is Samsung’s own Siri-like voice-activated personal assistant.
Samsung has confirmed two models of the Galaxy Core: the standard Galaxy Core, which includes support for a single SIM card and is likely to launch internationally, and the Galaxy Core Duos, which adds support for a second on-line SIM and will likely be limited to countries where dual-SIM devices are commonplace. Both models will be available in 3G HSUPA only, with no plans for Long Term Evolution (LTE)support.
