The Galaxy Core: Samsung’s answer to the alleged entry-level iPhone?

With the ongoing rumors of Apple intent on rolling out an entry-level variant of its highly successful iPhone series, Samsung recently announced a tangible, real mobile phone that works on the rumored entry-level iPhone’s premise.

Dubbed as the Galaxy Core, the handset is, essentially, a fully featured high end phone taking shape in a low-cost, entry-level price.


Looking a lot like Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4, the Galaxy Core is noted to come with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, running on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). With 1 gig of RAM, the phone is available in an 8 gig storage space variant, matched with a 4.3 inch sized WVGA LCD display, with a screen resolution at 480 x 800.

The Galaxy Core also comes with a primary (back) and secondary (front) camera, with its primary cam rated to capture images in 5 Megapixel clarity.

What sets it apart from other 4-inch sized handsets bearing similar hardware specs is its built-in LED flash, a hardware spec that comes in handy for night mode snapshots.

A quick comparison of the Galaxy Core’s hardware specs with other recently released Samsung handsets would note how low-end it is, considering the fact that quad-core processor phones have somewhat become Samsung’s thing.

But as an entry-level device, the Galaxy Core certainly has a lot to offer, just as it is available in single SIM and dual SIM variants.

Think Apple’s reported entry-level iPhone would bear the same specs? Or will the Cupertino-based tech giant roll out something better?
