On one hand, Android has blessed us with many choices when it comes to buying mobile devices. On the other hand, the mobile market is so saturated with devices that very few offer unique features. The scene will even get more crowded with the eventual release of more Galaxy Core variants.
The original Core (1.2GHz dual core processor, 4.3-inch 480-by-800 display, 5MP main camera) was announced last May and meant to target the low-end market with its mediocre specs. Fast forward to December, the Core Advance (1.2GHz dual core processor, 4.7-inch 480-by-800, 5MP main camera) was announced as a dual core smartphone for the elderly. This year, Samsung wants to trademark new names for the line: Galaxy Core Prima, Galaxy Core Ultra, and Galaxy Core Max.
The Korean device maker is even planning to add at least one more device to its Galaxy Ace series with Galaxy Ace Style.
It’s not yet clear if these to-be-trademarked names will really turn out to be derivatives. After all, they could be just different names for one device to be used on different carriers. In any case, Samsung is reportedly reading a LTE-enabled Galaxy Core by the end of March.
