Samsung Galaxy Core leaks – dual-SIM mid-range Android for Asia and Europe
Another day, another yet-unannounced Samsung phone! This time we're dealing with a mid-range device expected to launch in Russia, China, and perhaps more markets across Europe and Asia, we suppose. It is known as the Samsung Galaxy Core (model GT-I8262) – equipped with a 4.3-inch, 480 by 800 pixel display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor of some kind, and 768MB of RAM. Nothing impressive, we know, and the rest of its specs aren't going to wow you either.

The Samsung Galaxy Core is outfitted with a pair of cameras, the main one being of 5 megapixels. You also get 8GB of storage that can be expanded with a microSD card, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a 1800mAh battery. The unit measures 129.3 by 67.56 by 8.95 millimeters and weighs 140 grams. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean comes loaded on the device with Samsung's nature-inspired interface on top. 

As it becomes evident from the photos below, the Samsung Galaxy Core will be available in dual-SIM flavor, but a single-SIM variant might launch as well. The handset is said to be scheduled for a mid-May launch in Russia at a price of around $417. Whether anyone will take notice, given that there's little to make this mid-range smartphone stand out of the crowd, is a whole different story.

Might well be a replacement for the Galaxy S Duos. Samsung really knows how to keep all points of the market covered. Leave no gaps for competitors to fit in.
