Samsung Takes The Wraps Off The Galaxy Core LTE


Yesterday, Samsung unveiled the successor to its relatively popular 2013 mid-range Android smartphone, the Galaxy Core. Sporting the name ‘Galaxy Core LTE’, the follow-up handset, like its predecessor, isn’t exactly what you’d call an impressive device, but it’s still pretty snappy and has more enough power to get you through the day on a single charge.

In terms of internals, the Core LTE packs a 4.5-inch qHD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, an unidentified 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (expandable up to 64GB via microSD), a a VGA front-facing shooter and a 2,100 removable Li-Ion battery.

The Galaxy Core LTE will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean skinned with the latest version of the South Korean company’s custom Touchwiz user interface, which Samsung professes as being the ‘easier way to use your device, giving you intuitive control over everyday tasks.’

There’s no information with regards to a launch date or expected price of the phone just yet, but recent rumors suggest that it will retail for around $200 and will launch in Eastern Europe and Asia very shortly.
