Today, Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Core — a low-spec version of the recently-released Galaxy S IV — though it doesn’t come as much of a surprise given how much information about the handset leaked out prior to its reveal.
All of the Galaxy Core’s specs were confirmed, including its 4.3-inch, WVGA (800 x 480) display, its 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU, and both single- and dual-SIM options. Other specs include 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of onboard storage (expandable via microSD), a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a VGA front-facing shooter.
As far as the software goes, the Galaxy Core will run Android OS Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. It will also come preloaded with some of the higher-end Galaxy software features like Smart Stay, Smart Alert, Motion UI, and S Voice.
Though no pricing information has been provided for the Galaxy Core yet, Samsung did say that the single-SIM version will be available in July, while the dual-SIM version will be coming this month.
