Dual SIM Samsung Galaxy Core 2 to be launched in May
It looks like Samsung has a new smartphone that’s going to be included in the company’s Galaxy Core series. According to Russian website Hi-tech.mail.ru, the upcoming handset is called Galaxy Core 2.

The website has a couple of images that allegedly show the new Galaxy Core 2, and it’s also providing details about its features. Reportedly, the handset will run Android 4.4 KitKat at launch, sporting a not-so-great 4.5-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels. It will further offer HSPA+ connectivity, dual SIM capabilities, a VGA front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, only 512MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2,000 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Core 2 should cost about $277 (€200) in Russia, which is more than you'd expect to pay for it. Anyway, the handset is supposed to go on sale there starting May. We’re assuming that Samsung will also release it in various other markets.

Before the Galaxy Core 2, Samsung introduced four other smartphones from this series: the original Galaxy Core, the Galaxy Core Plus, the Galaxy Core Advance, and the Galaxy Core LTE.

With those specs the phone should cost under 200$ to be reasonable.

Phones in Russia are more expensive than others.

I guess it will be about $220 in USA

For normal people odd brand name is enough to not buy something. Another example is Moto G, here in Finland it is a fantastic deal, but nobody seems to like Motorola brand, so only select people choose it and do not go with similiarly priced Samsung and Lumia. Shame, really. But people who are tech enthusiasts value things differently, so to each his own, I suppose.

Yet, there is no competition to Moto G. Another stupid phone coming from Samsung.
