Samsung Galaxy Core 2 With Android 4.4 KitKat OS
Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Core 2 along with bunch of other devices including Galaxy Ace 4 and Galaxy Core mini. Like the previous model, Core 2 comes with low to mid-range specs with nothing fancy to boast about.
This article talk about Samsung Galaxy Core 2 short review. With Android One coming in, Samsung seems to be in a tremendous pressure from the competitors as almost almost all OEMs are firing the new age smartphones in the market which comes with better pricing and stronger specs. The Samsung Galaxy Core 2 which was leaked earlier in the month of April, has been created official now in India. The device is the successor of the Galaxy Core which was launched last year and will have a 4.5 inch touch screen display with 800 x 480 pixel resolutions. Using the arrival of XiaoMi in India as well as with Micromax, Karbonn, LAVA etc, becoming a part of “Android One” project, Samsung is facing some serious tough time as the sub- $100 will really push the markets in India where Internet penetration is simply around 10-12% of total population. So, lets take a look at on what are the specs and features of this Galaxy Core 2 Android phone.
Specifications featuring of Galaxy Core 2:
The Samsung Galaxy Core 2 is a dual Sim variant and will be powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core processor along with 768 MB of RAM and can have an internal memory of 4 GB that may be further expandable up to 64 GB via microSD card slot. There is a 5 MP facing to the rear camera with LED flash which is accompanied with a VGA camera around the front for video calling and selfies. The connectivity from the device includes 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS + GLONASS and it will be powered by a 2000 mAh battery around the back. We have also summarized the detailed list of specs and features.
Display and Features
The Galaxy Core 2 uses a 4.5 inch TFT panel that features a WVGA screen resolution of 480×800 pixels translating to some pixel density of 207 pixels per inch. Again, the unit joins the already crowded budget smartphone market and therefore we cannot expect it to boast superior screen resolution. But, similarly priced handsets launched through the several other do arrive with better screens packing HD resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass coating for scratch resistance.
The handset is fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat operating system out-of-the-box and it is packed with the standard connectivity options including dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
Camera and Internal Storage
The camera unit at the back of the Galaxy Core 2 is really a 5 MP one that is along with auto focus and LED flash for enhanced low light performance. This standard camera is accompanied further having a VGA front-facing snapper that can make basic video calls. These camera capabilities are definitely standard for the pricing so we cannot expect anything more advanced in the handset.
The storage department is look after by 4 GB of internal storage space that is too low to store all of the necessary content including the operating-system, default software and installed applications. Thereby, to assist the users there is a micro Sdcard slot that can support expandable memory cards as much as 64 GB providing the users the freedom of storing any content with no trouble of limited storage.
Processor and Battery
The processor used in the Galaxy Core 2 is really a 1.2 GHz quad-core unit of unspecified chipset that needs to be capable of delivering an average performance and user experience. This processor gets teamed up with 768 MB of RAM for multi-tasking and switching between applications. Considering this hardware combination, we can’t expect superior performance in the Samsung phone.
The battery unit within the Samsung offering is a 2,000 mAh one that’s acceptable as it can deliver a decent backup towards the device given its mediocre specifications.
