The Samsung Galaxy Core 2 which is one of the many entry-level Android 4.4 KitKat phones from the company has been put up for grabs in India. The handset is retailing at Rs 12150 online and the OEM is yet to announce its arrival, but that should be just around the corner.
The Samsung Galaxy Core 2 is a decent upgrade over its predecessor that’s currently retailing for around Rs 11479. The handset doesn’t appear to be attractively priced considering that devices with similar features are available for under Rs 8000, but this was expected from the company.
Nevertheless, the handset is a pretty good option if you’re a Samsung loyalist and want the same flagship design in a cheaper package. The phone was leaked multiple times and was officially launched earlier this month along with the Galaxy Ace 4, Young 2 and Star 2 handsets, all of which are expected to debut in India as well.
Being an entry-level phone, it comes with a generously sized display of 4.5 inches and the resolution here is the standard WVGA. Along with Android KitKat, you get the TouchWiz Essentials UI which is a lightweight version of the interface and while the phone packs a quad core processor, the RAM is a measly 512MB.
