Samsung has unveiled another mid-range smartphone that offers LTE connectivity with a sub-$300 price tag, the Samsung Galaxy Core Lite.
Not to be confused with the Galaxy Core LTE which we reported back in February, the new Samsung Galaxy Core Lite has a slightly bigger display which measures 4.7-inch. However, in exchange for the larger real estate, the South Korean firm has outfitted it with a lower screen resolution.
Other than the display, the only two other difference between the two LTE-enabled handsets include a newer and faster Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor on the Galaxy Core Lite which comes at the cost of a slightly lower battery capacity.
Samsung Galaxy Core Lite specs:
4.7-inch WVGA (800 x 480) display, 198ppi
1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor
Adreno 305 GPU
8GB internal storage
microSD up to 64GB
5 megapixel AF rear camera w/LED flash
1080p @ 30fps video recording
VGA front camera
WiFi b/g/n, WiFi-Direct
A-GPS + GLONASS
Android 4.2.2 Jellybean
The Samsung Galaxy Core Lite will be available starting this month and will be retailed for TWD7,988 or a little under 11,600 in our local currency.
