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.
