Samsung announces the Galaxy Core, coming this month
Samsung simply loves to flood the market with its devices! Even if it already has a good number of models in a particular segment of the market, it'll just continue launching more and more just to make sure that the competition's offerings get lost in the sea of Samsungs.

OK, we don't know if that's really the strategy behind Samsung's actions, but today's news from Seoul certainly doesn't refute it... The company has officially announced yet another Android smartphone, the Galaxy Core, and even though this model will not treat you to the very best of Android, it'll certainly deliver all the core goodies that the platform and Samsung can offer.

The Samsung Galaxy Core will be a low- to mid-range model with a 4.3" WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor (possibly a MediaTek or something like that), 5MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. One of its more interesting features is that it will come in a Dual SIM variant, where the two SIM card slots will be able to remain active simultaneously.

The Galaxy Core will come with the lovely TouchWiz Nature user interface and all of its useful features like Smart Stay, S Voice and Smart Alert, with the last one alerting you to missed calls and messages once you pick the phone up. Neat stuff!

Users who are willing to purchase the dual-SIM version of the Samsung Galaxy Core will be able to do so as soon as this month, while those who'd prefer the single-SIM variant will have to wait until July. The company hasn't announced the markets where the Galaxy Core is going to launch, but Europe and Asia are safe bets.

I really cant understand the point of releasing a phone with such poor specs and this horrible look. If it looked nice, at least you could expect it to attract some people, but......

There are already phones with similar specs from Samsung. Galaxy S2 plus: 4.3 inch WVGA, 1.2 Ghz dual core, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB memory. Galaxy S2: 4.3 inch WVGA, 1.2 Ghz dual core, 1GB RAM, 16 GB memory. Galaxy s3 mini: 4 inch WVGA, 1 GHz dual core, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB memory. Galaxy s duos: 4 inch WVGA, 1 GHz dual core, 768 MB RAM, 4 GB memory. Galaxy S advance: 4 inch WVGA, 1 GHz dual core, 768 MB RAM, 16 GB memory. It's Samsung's method of saying "hi $uckerZ, buy the newest one and pay more for the same spec because if you want to save more by buying older models, you wont get software updates."

Yeah, that's why when choosing a Samsung Galaxy phone will give you a headache, their Galaxy phones have similar designs and similar specs. Samsung is Apple wannabe.

I think they already exceeded Apple by leaps and bounds in terms of recycling. Apple recycles the design, but all of them are flagship models; Nokia recycles the N9 design but also reserved for flagship models. Samsung? They recycle it from $200 phones to $700 phones. =.= Open GSMarena's database of phones for Samsung and you are greeted by a full page of similar looking phones.

Wow no thank you, I'm not going to GSMarena's or PhoneArena's database of Samsung phones cuz it's gonna be a NIGHTMARE OF FREAKIN' GALAXIES! It's like hypnotizing you to buy a Samsung Galaxy! So, nuh-uh, no thank you! :)

I agree with you! :)

51. yudi.nemesis unregistered

ooohh.. please don't compare Galaxy core with those two great mid range devices. even NL620 and Sony Xperia L is still a lot better than this one

LOL!! And unlike the iRetards, Sammy believes in giving their consumers options across various demographics and price points. Not everyone can afford my Galaxy Note 2 at Full Verizon retail; this is a great option for the have-nots or people who simply don't want to spend $700+ on a SUPER SMARTPHONE (like my G-Note 2)!! +1 for you!!

What's the purpose of releasing devices like this?there's already galaxy s3 mini,win,s2 plus and the upcoming s4 mini and their prices really do not differ very much

i guess this is suppose to target the very-low to mid-low range of phones.

totally agree!! this look good! but actually that myphone a919i duo or micromax canvas a116 HD is better! but i just wish it has dragontrail glass though!

LOL Samsung is not even trying any more on design. They should have made this phone as small as possible with the same specs. Very thin, lightweight, with very small bezel on top and bottom. Better screen to phone ratio than the SGS4 would have been very cool
