By | October 6, 2014

Samsung is yet to officially announce the Galaxy Core Prime smartphone, but it appears to be yet another smartphone that will follow the footsteps of the selfie focused Galaxy Grand Prime. However, the handset appears to have a less impressive camera department similar to the existing Core smartphones, but it is astounding as it is likely to include LTE connectivity.

Well, three variants of the Galaxy Core Prime have passed through TENAA and they are SM-G3606, SM-G3608 and SM-G3609 respectively and they are all claimed to feature dual SIM support and TD-LTE connectivity. Also, couple of these models includes support for international LTE and they are different only in 2G or 3G connectivity.

Moreover, the smartphone has been listed for pre-order by an Indian retailer Flipkart with better images and details specifications. That particular variant of the Galaxy Core Prime appears to be a single SIM model without LTE. However, these specifications are unofficial and we cannot confirm anything before Samsung launches the device.

According to the list, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime would flaunt a 4.5 PLS LCD display with WVGA screen resolution and run on Android 4.4 KitKat platform. It is likely to incorporate a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor backed by 1 GB of RAM. There is a 5 MP main camera with support for FHD 1080p video recording and a 2 MP front-facing camera for video conferencing. The other aspects of the yet to be announced smartphone include 8 GB of expandable storage and a 2,000 mAh battery.

The price of the Galaxy Core Prime as revealed by the Indian retailer is Rs 8,499 that translates to $140 or €110. However, there is no information on when the handset will go official. Overall, the Galaxy Core Prime is similar to Galaxy Core LTE and Galaxy Core Lite LTE respectively.
