Samsung launches Galaxy Core dual-SIM smartphone in India

Another week another smartphone from Samsung – this time it’s the dual-SIM Galaxy Core with 4.3-inch display with Android Jelly Bean 4.1
Priced at ₹15,199 the Galaxy Core is currently available online and will be reaching retail outlets very soon. The 4.3-inch display provides a 480 x 800 pixel resolution, which is definitely not the best out there. Some of the other features of the handset are 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1 GB RAM, 8GB internal storage expandable to an additional 32GB, microSD card slot, in-built FM radio, Wi-Fi, HSDPA 3.6, 5-megapixel camera on the rear, a VGA front camera and a 1800 mAh battery.
There is nothing that special about the phone and Galaxy Core seems to be a part of Samsung’s strategy of launching low-priced budget smartphones to compete against the local vendors in India like Micromax, Spice, Karbonn, etc. In other Samsung news, the Korean electronics giant just surpassed Nokia to become the vendor to have shipped the most handsets in India.
