Samsung Galaxy Core II is now official: 4.5” Android KitKat phone with dual SIM functionality
The Samsung Galaxy Core II has just arrived to refresh and rejuvenate the lower mid-range ranks of Samsung’s Android smartphone army.

A successor to last year’s successful 4.3” Galaxy Core, the Core II comes with some significant improvements: a larger, 4.5” display, a more powerful, 1.2GHz quad-core chip (versus a dual-core one on the original Galaxy Core), and a bigger, 2000mAh battery (vs a 1800mAh juicer on the first Core). It’s also got a new leather-imitating finish, contributing to a new, softer touch and feel. With the larger screen, though, the Core II has grown bigger in size, as well as both heavier (4.87oz for the Core II vs 4.37oz for the original Core) and thicker (0.39” vs 0.35”) than the original.

Switching to the camera side of things, the Core II packs a 5-megapixel auto-focus main shooter with a single LED flash, and it’s also got a basic, VGA front-facing cam for the occasional selfie.

Being a new device, the Galaxy Core II also sports the latest Android 4.4 with a simplified version of the TouchWiz Essence UI, the interface Samsung introduced with the Galaxy S5.

It’s worth noting that the new Samsung Galaxy Core II supports Dual SIM connectivity, allowing customers to use two SIM cards and carry just one phone for work and home rather than two devices. How do you like this new mid-range soldier in Samsung’s Android squad?
