Samsung Galaxy Pocket 2 and Galaxy Core 2 Duos (both with Android KitKat) coming soon

Samsung Galaxy Pocket 2 and Galaxy Core 2 Duos (both with Android KitKat) coming soon
Samsung already introduced more than 100 different Android smartphones since 2009, and it will certainly release many more from now on. Two of those “many more” handsets seem to be the Galaxy Pocket 2, and the Galaxy Core 2 Duos. Both can be seen on the website of a Vietnamese online store, although Samsung has yet to announce them.

Succeeding the Galaxy Pocket from 2012, and the Pocket Plus and Pocket Neo models from last year, the new Samsung Galaxy Pocket 2 is an entry-level device. The best thing about it is that it runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. The handset features a small 3.2-inch QVGA display, dual SIM capabilities, HSDPA, 1.0GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a 2MP rear camera.

The Galaxy Core 2 Duos is the Samsung Galaxy Core 2 that we first heard of back in April. It, too, runs Android KitKat, and supports two SIM cards. However, it’s more advanced than the Galaxy Pocket 2, offering a 4.5-inch WVGA display, quad-core processor (unknown maker), 5MP rear camera with flash, VGA front-facing camera, 768MB of RAM, and 4GB of expandable internal memory.

Samsung was supposed to release the Galaxy Core 2 in May, but that obviously didn’t happen. Anyway, both the Core 2 and Galaxy Pocket 2 will probably be available to buy in the near future in select markets.

Actually, they can't. Observed Universe has more one hundred billion galaxies so if Samsung set out to release a phone for each one, it takes them some billion years at current speed.

Well, it's Duos not Duo, so I don't know if they are going to say anything at all.

looks like samsung is trying to use circular camera instead of the regular rounded edged square.I prefer the latter

The render image shows a nice display in the Pocket 2, but in reality you'd be able to see the pixels from one block away

Biggest thing about this news is we get to see how Kit Kat runs on less than 1GB of ram. Touchwiz tho.....will get in the way of course. And seriously, Core 2, Core 2 Duo? Keep on Samsung and I will start siding with those calling you copy cats...

It'll lag, not even a question. Android OEMs should stay at >1gb, just like Windows OEMs should stay >4gb.

Quite a downgrade for the Galaxy Core 2, the former had 1gb of ram, n 8 gb internal memory.

A single core 1 gHz processor ? Did i see that right ? The galaxy pocket 2 clearly shows that samsung doesn't know how to make low end phones or care for what consumers want. I know now people are gonna tell me that its a extremely low end phone and will cost the same but will you just look at the Lg L35 ? Dual sim, IPS display, dual core 1.2 ghz snapdragon, adreno 302 gpu, and android 4.4 kitkat with knock on feature. And it will costs only about 120 usd. Not to mention that its a better looker then the pocket 2. Sammy must learn from motorola and lg in order to come up with better phones instead of just flooding the market with useless phones.
