By December 3rd, 2014 AT 11:01 PM

The Galaxy Core Prime was listed last month on Flipkart, but it hasn’t been officially released yet. Well, it looks like Samsung might soon launch the Galaxy Core Prime in India. A Mumbai based mobile phone retailer, Mahesh Telecom, has posted an image of the box package on the Internet, which shows the specification of the device, its image, and its official pricing.

As per the image and other leaked information, the Galaxy Core Prime will be based on Android 4.4 KitKat and feature a 4.5-inch PLS LCD display with WVGA resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, microSD card slot, dual-SIM card compatibility, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It would also feature a 5-megapixel primary camera with autofocus and LED flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Other connectivity features include 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and Bluetooth v4.0.


Samsung Galaxy Core Prime Specifications

  • 4.5-inch PLS LCD display, WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution, 233 ppi, and capacitive multitouch screen
  • Android 4.4 KitKat operating system with TouchWiz UX
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor (either a Spreadtrum SC8830 or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) with 1GB RAM
  • 8GB ROM and a microSD card slot
  • 5MP primary camera, autofocus, LED flash, and 2MP secondary camera
  • Dual-SIM (3G + 2G), HSPA+, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, A-GPS, and microUSB v2.0 port
  • 2,000 mAh removable battery

It can be seen as a slightly beefed up variant of the Samsung Galaxy Core 2 and looking at the price tag, it will compete with the likes of the Asus Zenfone 5, Nokia Lumia 630 Dual SIM, and the Xiaomi Redmi Note. It would be great if Samsung can provide the Snapdragon 410 processor in the Galaxy Core Prime. Its successor, the Galaxy Core 2 was powered by a Spreadtrum SoC so it is unlikely that Samsung will use a Snapdragon 410 SoC in the Galaxy Core Prime. Samsung’s offering is missing an HD display, a norm in the smartphones these days, which are priced around Rs. 10,000.

Computer science engineer turned technology blogger. Following consumer electronics industry closely from 2006, he can now predict pretty much where the market is heading. He has a dream to own Android, Windows Phone and iOS smartphones all at the same time.

It is Spreadtrum only. There’s a different version of Core prime SM-G 3606 that has Snapdragon, 768 MB RAM and 4G support.


*Finally a quad core smartphone from Samsung at a price less than 10k. This actually indicates that Samsung is now bending to market pressure. In the past Samsung never released a quad core smartphone in the less than 10k segment fearing that such a move might cannibalize the sales of their 15k+ segment of devices like Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 \Galaxy Win etc which had quad core processors. *This new phone does seem promising but I guess Samsung needs to do more. The three things Samsung has to do are as follows 1. Reduce their portfolio Although there was news… Read more »
