A new week, a new dual-sim smartphone from Samsung. Samsung, the world’s largest phone manufacturer has announced another dual-sim phone, the Galaxy Core.

Galaxy Core phone falls in the mid-range category and will have optional dual-sim capability.

To start off, the Galaxy Core comes with a 4.3 inch display with WVGA resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, which is just enough for most people but far from outstanding. It is made of plastic and will be available in Blue and White colors.

Under the hood lies a 1.2Ghz dual-core CPU along with 768MB of RAM. The amount of internal storage on Galaxy Core is set at 8GB, which is expandable via a microSD card slot.

At the back of Galaxy Core is a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and HD video recording, along with a front-facing camera at the front.

The phone runs on Android 4.1.2 which is a bit outdated but far from bad. The phone features several of the software tricks of its bigger brethren, including Smart Stay, Smart Alert and of course, S Voice.

The connectivity package is quite modest too with microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi and 3G.

Here are the specifications of the phone:

  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean customized with Nature UI
  • weight: 124g
  • 8.95mm thick
  • 4.3 inch display with resolution of 800 x 480 pixels
  • Optional dual-sim
  • 1.2Ghz dual-core CPU and 768MB of RAM
  • 8GB of expandable internal storage
  • 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • microSD card slot, microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi, 3G
  • 1800 mAh battery

The Galaxy Core will be going on sale this month. The regular, non dual-sim version will start retailing in July. Pricing is unknown as of now but it should will most probably around Rs. 30-35K.
