Samsung has upgraded its Galaxy Core smartphone with a newer model – the Galaxy Core Advance. (GT-I8580). The phone features a revamped design with a “soft feel” coated back cover and surprisingly comes with a physical set of menu, home and back buttons along with dedicated keys for voice recorder, camera, volume, menu, home and power functions.

Samsung says these can prove useful for users who aren’t that comfortable with the touchscreen interface. The Galaxy Core Advance also comes with enhanced accessibility features for the disabled and visually impaired users.

Some of the features include Optical Scan that automatically reads the detected text on the image aloud, Light Sensing technology that uses the device’s camera to sense light direction and brightness, and Instant Voice Recorder that offers simplified access to make quick voice notes. The device is also equipped with Screen Curtain that enables users to operate commands on a black screen to ensure privacy and saves battery life, high quality TTS (Text-to-Speech) functionalities and Voice Guided Camera functions to help users take pictures by reading out the number of faces detected and their standing location.

The Android 4.2 OS supports HSPA and features a 4.7-inch WVGA TFT Display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP camera and front-facing VGA camera, 8GB internal memory, microSD card slot up to 64GB, 2000mAh battery.

Galaxy Core Advance will be available in Deep Blue and Pearl White from early next year.
