The Samsung Galaxy Core, a device that had its details leaked not too long ago, has been made official by the Korean giant, and will also have a single SIM version (the previous information only mentioned a dual SIM smartphone).
Described in the press release to offer “Ideal Portability and Power”, the device mostly confirms what had been previously mentioned: it has a 4.3-inch touchscreen at a resolution of 800 x 480 and a 1.2GHz CPU, coupled with 1GB of RAM. Internal memory is 8GB (expandable via microSD card), and you can store images taken by the 5-megapixel camera on it, among other things.
The Galaxy Core runs Android Jelly Bean, with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface on top, of course, and both dual SIM and single SIM models are set to be available on the market . The press release says that you should expect the dual SIM in May, with the single SIM one coming in July. It also mentions that availability depends on market, so it might be possible that your location might get only one of them.
The most interesting thing about the device is that it comes with some of Samsung’s proprietary software features, like Smart Stay, Smart Alert, Motion UI and S Voice.
The press release doesn’t mention anything on pricing, but if we’re to believe the previously leaked information, the dual SIM version will cost around $415.
Would you be tempted to get the Samsung Galaxy Core, and if so, which version?
