Samsung launched Galaxy Ace 4, Young 2, Core 2 and Star 2

Samsung used to be the company that got a strong hold of the smartphone market by launching a slew of budget droids. But the onslaught from a slew of Chinese and Indian companies globally meant that it started to lose ground in the entry level smartphone segments. In a bid to gain back the lost ground, it has just launched 4 new budget handsets named the Galaxy Ace 4, Young 2, Core 2 and Star 2 which are the successors of their yesteryear offerings. Let us take a look at their specifications:

Galaxy Ace 4 specifications:
