Samsung Galaxy Core Prime 4G hits LTE handset market in India

A new Samsung Galaxy Core Prime 4G smartphone is now available for purchase in India; at least through physical retailers. Even before the company could announce its release officially, a reseller in Mumbai has revealed that this 4G LTE device can be grabbed in exchange of Rs 9999 right now.

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime 4G is the South Korean giant’s answer to the many attractive and affordable 4G handsets that are being sold with much success in India. These include the likes of the Yu Yureka (Rs 8999), the Redmi 2 (Rs 6999), the Lenovo A7000 (Rs 8999) and more.

Samsung’s offering comes with slightly lower end hardware as compared to these smartphones however. With it, you’re getting a 4.5-inch WVGA display and a 1.2GHz quad core processor sitting atop an unmentioned SoC. Our guess is that it’s the 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chipset that’s present inside this gadget.
