Samsung Galaxy Core Prime breaks cover on Indian e-retailer website


Last updated: October 5th, 2014 at 15:52 UTC+02:00

A new entry-level Android smartphone from Samsung has broken  its cover on the Indian online retailer’s website. Flipkart has prematurely listed the Galaxy Core Prime on its website with a price tag of INR 8,499 which translates to about $138 or €110. The device is quite similar to the Galaxy Core LTE and the Galaxy Core Lite LTE. It features a 4.5-inch WVGA PLS LCD display, runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and is 8.8 mm thin. It is equipped with a 5-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, autofocus lens, 1080p video recording, and a 2-megapixel front-facing secondary camera.

The Galaxy Core Prime is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor of unknown make coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM. The storage capacity can be expanded by a microSD card slot (up to 64GB). As per the information available on the website, which is yet to be confirmed by Samsung, the Galaxy Core Prime would have a single SIM card slot (GSM – 900MHz, 1800MHz), though we would not be surprised if Samsung releases a dual-SIM version of the device. There are accelerometer, proximity sensor, an ambient light sensor, and a 2,000 mAh battery.

The 4G LTE (TD-LTE and FDD-LTE) variant of the Galaxy Core Prime (SM-G3606, G3608 and G3609) has been certified by TENAA. All of them have dual-SIM card slots while two of them feature international 4G LTE connectivity and differ only whether they have GSM or CDMA connectivity. The single-SIM variant of the Galaxy Core Prime doesn’t feature LTE connectivity.
