Samsung’s focus on the entry-level segment isn’t fading away and it plans to strengthen its portfolio with two new additions, the Galaxy Core 2 and Pocket 2 smartphones. Both devices have been leaked online as sequels to the original releases.
GSMArena is reporting that the two handsets popped up at a Vietnamese online store called Mainguyen. Well, both pages have been pulled, but the website did manage to save the images and details about each device. The Samsung Galaxy Core 2 was leaked once before. The handset was spotted in Russia where it was expected to go on sale towards the end of May for around $277. The difference is that the phone had single SIM support, while the newly leaked one carries dual slots.
What’s more, the single SIM model has just 512MB of RAM, while the new one carries 768MB of RAM. The handset comes with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and it’s powered by a 1.2GHz quad core Cortex A7 processor. Other features include a 4.5-inch WVGA display, a 5MP rear camera, a 2000mAh battery, 4GB of flash memory and a microSD card slot. The Galaxy Pocket 2 is much smaller with a 3.2-inch QVGA panel. The phone houses a single core processor and 512MB of RAM whilst still offering KitKat.
