The Samsung Galaxy Core Plus, an entry-level smartphone with a decent set of features, has been unveiled in Taiwan and seems to have plans of arriving in some other countries where there’s a demand for dual SIM devices.

It is capable of rendering visuals in 480 x 800p resolution. A VGA webcam graces the front side too and a 5MP camera with LED flash has been fitted on the rear panel.
