Samsung has added a new cousin to the Galaxy Core family dubbed as Samsung Galaxy Core Lite that supports 4G unlike other members of core family. The mid ranger might cost around 15,000 in Indian market. Samsung has just launched the smartphone in South Korea and has not revealed plans to launch the smartphone in the Indian market yet but we hope Indian consumer will soon get to test Core Lite.
This 4G mid range model from Samsung runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.3 which is a disappointment at the time where most brands are offering latest Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Although, like most Galaxy models the Core Lite also has an extra coating of Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI that sits on top of the Android OS.
The smartphone has massive 4.7 inch TFT screen with 480X800p WVGA display that gives about 199 ppi. Galaxy Core Lite comes with quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor that is clocked at 1.2 GHz and coupled with 1 GB RAM and 8GB internal memory along with micro SD slot for expandable memory for up to 64GB. The smartphone has 2000 mAh battery.
Core Lite is comes with primary 5 megapixels primary camera with LED flash but its missing a front camera which is prominent feature at this price point. In the connectivity segment the device offers Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, 3.0, NFC, 3G, GPS tracker.
With Galaxy Core Lite Samsung gets more misses some right notes apart from its 4 G connectivity, no secondary camera, and average display for its class leave us wanting for more. If you are looking for a midrange Android LG and Sony already have attractive 4G options but perhaps a tricky price may work in Samsung’s favor.
