Reliable source for Smartphone leakes, @MaheshTelecom has confirmed the arrival of Samsung Galaxy Core 2 in India for Rs. 11,599. The new Galaxy Core gets rid of the Cortex A5 dual core chipset and also brings new and fancy Android Kitkat on board.
Display is 4.5 inches in size and sports 480 x 800 pixel resolution, which doesn't sound like much especially at this price point. The Dual SIM phone is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core chipset, most likely Snapdragon 200, aided by 768 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage.
Interestingly, the RAM and Internal storage has been downgraded as compared to Galaxy Core which came with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage. This is slightly disappointing. In an attempt to placate your storage needs, MicroSD support is also present up to 64 GB.
Imaging hardware includes 5 MP rear shooter with LED flash and a VGA front facing shooter for video calling. Connectivity features include 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and GLONASS.
Samsung Galaxy Core 2 weighs moderate 138 grams and houses a 2000 mAh battery which sounds decent. With tier one phones like Zenfone 5 and Moto G available in the same price bracket, Samsung Galaxy Core 2 doesn’t strike as impressive.
