Many smartphone enthusiasts in India will have heard of the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime. It’s a mid-range smartphone that released last year, and back in June there were rumors of a cheaper alternative (Value Edition) of the phone on the way. Now the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime VE has finally made its India launch, so read on for details on the price and more.
The giant smartphone manufacturer has put the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime VE price at Rs. 8,600 and it’s now listed on the company’s e-store in India. However, at the time of writing it’s showing as ‘out of stock’ although potential buyers can register their interest for the device.
Specs of the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime VE include a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, a 4.5-inch display with resolution of 800 x 480, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD to 128GB. Further specifications of the dual SIM handset include a 5-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, 2-megapixel front-facing snapper, and 2000 mAh battery.
Connectivity is catered for with 3G, WiFi b/g/n, WiFi Direct and WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. It runs the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and measures 130.8mm x 67.9mm x 8.8mm. The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime Value Edition also features an Ultra Power Saving Mode and will be available in grey, silver or white colors.
It’s interesting that Samsung has decided to launch the Value Edition of the Galaxy Core Prime so soon after the Samsung Galaxy J2 was announced.
