Samsung Galaxy Core now official: 1.2GHz dua-core CPU, 1GB RAM, and Jelly Bean

Samsung just announced another android phone to come up with a more cluttered portfolio of devices. Well, I think they’re doing it too much and adding this would makes this worse. They already have tons of smartphones out in the market and it seems impractical to have another one.
Samsung Galaxy Core has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor processor that could take almost any game that you want and it goes with 1GB of RAM. There is an 8GB of internal storage so that you could enjoy your apps, games, and multimedia files on the go and it’s expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card.
Galaxy Core comes with a 4.3-inch WVGA TFT display which is really a downer. It lacks the Super AMOLED technology which a similar Samsung comes with. Have you guessed it? Yes, it’s the Galaxy S3 Mini. It has pretty identical specs too and it’s only advantage is the bigger 1800mAh battery.
I don’t really like the strategy they’re doing because it’s confusing the consumers even more. I know that they want to offer something for each budget level, but they’re often crossing the lines between their own devices.
