Samsung instroduces the Galaxy Core LTE smartphone, offering users optimised performance and 4G on a budget.
Samsung has launched its new Galaxy Core LTE phone, aimed at users who want 4G browsing and media streaming, but don’t have the fat wallet needed for a more premium mobile device. The Galaxy Core LTE comes packing some decent features such as NFC technology with S Beam for sharing your files with other Galaxy users, and Samsung’s usual broad range of camera tools.
Samsung has cut down the Galaxy Core’s standard specs to trim down the cost, with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor on-board, but 1GB of RAM hopefully means not much stuttering when you’re playing with apps. The 4.5-inch qHD display is a decent size for a mid-range handset too, beating the likes of Motorola’s Moto G. The 2,100mAh battery will hopefully give you a full day of uber-fast web browsing, if you don’t abuse it too badly, and 8GB of storage can be boosted by a 64GB microSD card.
The Galaxy Core LTE also has a 5 megapixel camera which packs the usual range of Samsung snapper features. These include Best Photo, Continuous Shot, Buddy Photo Share, Sound & Shot, and Panorama.
Samsung has kept its leather-alike soft-feel rear for the Galaxy Core LTE, first spotted on the Galaxy Note 3, and you’ll notice from the above shot that the Korean company hasn’t exactly revolutionised its standard smartphone design. The phone comes in colours black and white, not exactly a great deal of choice, but fresh colours might come at a later date.
The Galaxy Core LTE will be available in countries across Europe, as well as in Russia and in some countries in Asia, although we don’t have a set UK price or release date yet. More news when we have it.
