The Samsung Galaxy Core launched back in May has been updated in the form of a new device, Galaxy Core Plus.
The Galaxy Core Plus is everything that the Galaxy Core was save for two things: the RAM and the Android version. The Galaxy Core Plus has 768 MB RAM, a reduction since the Galaxy Core has 1 GB of RAM. It also packs Android 4.2 out of the box, an update since the Galaxy Core shipped with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

- Camera: 5 megapixel main camera and a VGA front-facing camera
- OS: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- Battery: 1800 mAh

The Galaxy Core Plus has been launched in Taiwan but should be available in most markets where Samsung readily pushes mid-range and low end Android smartphones pretty soon and is bound to replace the Galaxy Core in store shelves.
