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.
