Samsung already have the flagship device of 2014 out, but their line of mid range and entry level might need a booster if they are to counter the huge fight placed by many vendors in key emerging markets. The market segment that purchases low cost dual SIM phones is getting invested into with quite a lot of success from players like Nokia, Micromax in India and Tecno in major African markets.
This leak goes to confirm that they indeed have noticed that they need to self-reinvent to stay competitive. Oh! forgot Motorola also have quite the products for the same market segment and recently hit India, the hot-bed for entry levels and mid range.
Now this new leak comes from a Vietnamese retailer who might have placed the product images quite early and removed them off as quickly. The Internet is usually not asleep, so these caught some attention and here we are. The two devices have interesting specs sheets as you will see below.
Galaxy Pocket sequel comes with a 3.2 inch QVGA display, up from 2.8 and a boost in OS version. Galaxy Pocket Plus and Galaxy Pocket Neo came with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich after the Galaxy Pocket which run Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The Galaxy Pocket 2 will come running Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, Dual SIM support, HSDPA, 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 4Gb internal and camera at 2MP.
Galaxy Core 2 Duos on the other hand follows the Galaxy Core Plus announced late last year. It comes wearing Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, Dual SIM support, 4.5 inch WVGA Display, Processor at Quad Core (clock info not available), 768MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, 5MP rear camera and a VGA front camera. Both of them take from the Galaxy Note 3 with the faux leather design and as you will notice the cameras are round as opposed to the usual rounded squares that Samsung does for past devices.
Well, this is Samsung positioning itself to tackle the recent announcements like Moto X, G, E and of course the Nokia X. Oh! And I won’t be linking to the source I got this information since as at time of publish the post on Sammyhub was removed. What do you think of the two devices, do they stand a chance at your heart?
