Samsung has launched a new Android smartphone named as Samsung Galaxy Core Plus with a dual-core processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system in Taiwan today. It is essentially the successor of the previously launched phone, Samsung Galaxy Core for the budget conscious buyers and it is surely likely to be priced around in the same range.
Talking about the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Core Plus doesn’t differ very much from its predecessor. It comes with a 4.3 inch WVGA TFT display with the resolution of 480*800 pixels. The phone is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor along with 768 MB of RAM, which is lesser than its predecessor that was launched with 1 GB RAM. It comes with 4 GB of internal storage, which is further expandable up-to 64 GB via external microSD card slot.
It sports a 5 MP rear camera along with a VGA front facing shooter with the standard video recording and calling features. Connectivity features of the new Samsung device include, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and in addition to that it also offers Near Field Communication.
A noticeable difference between the new device and its predecessor is that the new phone runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, while the previous edition was powered by a bit older, Android 4.1 JB operating system. And, considering the features it offers, we can expect it to arrive in India to compete against Motorola Moto G
, which is set to launch in the country in early-January 2014.
