We do know that Samsung loves to launch a smartphone with minor upgrades when compared to its existing range of devices and sometime it does make it difficult for users to choose from a couple of them as the tiny difference in the specifications and the price confuse them a lot. And today another budget smartphone from the Korean giant, possibly going to be called the Samsung Galaxy Core has leaked online which is expected to be budget smartphone going by the leaked specifications. The Samsung Galaxy Core has the same old design language which can be found on the Galaxy Grand, Galaxy S III and even the recently launched Galaxy 4 which makes it a bit monotonous. Going by the specifications, the mid-range smartphone packs which goes by the code GT-I8262 will have a 4.3 inch display with a decent resolution of 800 x 480 pixels while getting all its processing power from a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor which will be complemented with about 786 MB RAM.


The Samsung Galaxy Core will have dual-SIM functionality, as per the leak and will carry a 5 megapixel camera on the back with LED Flash while we can notice a front facing camera in the leaked image.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will run the shows on the device while, connectivity-wise, the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack.

Currently the device seems to be aimed at the markets of Russia and China and is expected to be priced at $430 and going on sale sometime in mid-May.
