Galaxy Core

4.3-inch WVGA screen, dual-core 1.2GHz CPU​, 5-megapixel camera

In keeping with its track record of putting out new smartphones at every conversion of screen size, price and specs, Samsung has announced the Galaxy Core, a mid-range handset sporting Galaxy S2-level internals. The Galaxy Core, which looks an awful lot like a shrunken-down Galaxy S3, packs a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU behind a 4.3-inch WVGA screen. Other notable spec points include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, an 1800mAh battery and 5-megapixel rear shooter. As you'll note from the pic above, the Galaxy Core will come in black and white color options.

On the software side it's running the TouchWiz Nature UI atop Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. That means it includes many of Samsung's latest software tricks, such as Smart Stay, S Voice, and Smart Alerts. 

Samsung says the Galaxy Core will arrive in dual-SIM form from May, and that a single-SIM version will follow from July depending on markets. But exactly which markets will get the Core is unclear -- we'll likely have to wait on local announcements from Samsung offices around the world.
