Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Features

Following the launch of numerous affordable handsets from Xiaomi and Asus for the Indian market, Samsung follows the same route with the Galaxy Core 2.

The Galaxy Core 2 which is available in Black & White colour comes with a standard set of specifications. It’s running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat baked with Samsung’s TouchWiz Essence UX. The performance is backed by a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor coupled with 768MB RAM. The display is 4.5 inch in size with 480 x 800 resolution (~207ppi). The device sports a VGA camera on the front and a 5 megapixel rear camera capable of video recording at 720 x 400 pixels (@30fps).

Samsung offers a leather-like back cover for the Galaxy Core 2, thus offering a comfortable grip. It comes with a removable 2000mAh battery. The internal storage tops off at 4GB with the option to expand it upto 64GB via a MicroSD card slot. The device seems falling short in terms of specifications when compared to the likes of Moto G or ASUS Zenfone 5.
