It appears that Note 3 isn’t the only entry-level device that Samsung is planning to release in early 2014. They’re also working on Galaxy Core Advance, a low-cost smartphone that features entry-level specifications. It seems that earlier reports of Samsung going mid-range in 2014 were correct.
Galaxy Core Advance will apparently sport a 4.7 inch WVGA display, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, and a 1.2 GHz dual core processor. Like always, the small internal storage capacity will be expandable through a microSD card slot featured by the device. As for the rest of the specs, Galaxy Core Advance will also feature a 5 MP rear-facing camera, a 2.000 mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and GPS.
The device’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS will be in tone with the hardware configuration, as you wouldn’t really expect the latest software to run on an entry-level device. On the bright side, Galaxy Core Advance will come equipped with pre-installed apps and features such as Easy Mode, Group Play, S Voice, S & Shot, and S Translate. Details on the price are unknown at this point unfortunately.
