Samsung Galaxy Core Advance launches in South Korea

Samsung Galaxy Core Advance launches in South Korea
Back in December we told you that Samsung had introduced the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance in Korea. On Monday, Samsung officially launched the device. For those smartphone newbies, Easy Mode makes it a snap to set-up a home page even if you've never done it before. Widgets appear in a large size and are automatically installed on the home screen. That mode can be disabled for those smartphone veterans. Optical scan reads text out loud from an image that it remembers, while other features include a voice guided camera, instant voice recorder and S Translator.

The Samsung Galaxy Core Advance is equipped with a 4.7 inch screen offering resolution of 480 x 800, with a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor under the hood and 1GB of RAM on board. The device features 8GB of native storage, a 5MP rear-facing camera and a .3MP front-facing snapper. A 2000mAh battery powers the device and Android 4.2 is installed out of the box.

The Samsung Galaxy Core Advance is available from SKT for 410,300 won ($387 USD). There are two color options available, Deep Blue and Pearl White.

So... looks like smaller GS4 Active with MUCH worse specs and no water/dustproof/added durability stuff. And eventhough I don't know much about pricing in Korea, that doesn't sound very cheap while considering specs.

The price is meaningless in Korea where everybody buys phones through the carriers (unless you're buying a nexus phone from Google Play). These phones will be released as a free phone with a contract (unlike the US carriers' 2-yr period, these will be available for free with a 6~12 month contract).
