Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Black - Expert Reviews


At the very onset, it should be noted that this review has been written on the basis of leaked information and at the same time, information available from reliable sources in the industry. Last year, Samsung came up with Galaxy Core series, specifically targeting the mid-range Indian market. After introducing Galaxy Core Advance, Galaxy Core LTE and Galaxy Core Plus, the time has now come for the company to launch Galaxy Core 2. If rumors are to be believed, this handset will be launched in India in the month of May itself. This handset will be available in two variants - dual SIM and entry-level one. According to the leaked information on a Russian website, Hi-Tech Mail, this handset is expected to have a bigger display screen than the earlier Galaxy Core. The screen size will be of 4.5 inches in place of 4.3 inches and the resolution will be of 800 x 480 pixels.

One of the best aspects of this affordable mid-ranged smartphone is that it runs on the latest Android operating system – Android 4.4 (KitKat). It is also expected to be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor along with possessing a LCD capacitive touchscreen display. When it comes to the camera, users will be elated to get a good rear primary camera having a sensor of 5 megapixels. However, the front faced VGA secondary camera is a bit disappointing as it sports just 0.3 megapixel sensor. The camera has some basic additional features such as smile detection, face detection, touch focus, geo-tagging and auto-focus. The leaked information of Samsung Galaxy Core 2 shows that it will be packed with 512MB of RAM. If this comes true, then it will be a great disappointment as all other Galaxy Core products come with 1GB of RAM.

It seems that this leaked information is incorrect because a company generally does not change the hardware aspects abruptly, especially in a smartphone series. In Russia, it is reported that Samsung Galaxy Core 2 will be available in Russia from May 20, 2014 onwards. In London, it will be available from June 1, 2014. The internal storage is limited to just 4GB and the storage capacity can be expanded with an external microSD storage by up to 64GB. There are multiple connectivity options available on this smartphone including Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, v4.0 Bluetooth and GPS. The handset comes with a battery of 2000mAh capacity.

Operating system and UI

The user interface of Samsung Galaxy Core 2 is expected to be TouchWiz and the device shall run on the latest version of Android OS – Android 4.4 (KitKat). Moreover, this handset will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. The users can use it pretty comfortably if these mentioned specifications are maintained in the smartphone when released. The smartphone is likely to sport dimensions of 129.7mm x 67.9mm x 9.8mm and weight of 138 grams. The display technology used will be TFT capacitive touchscreen having display size of 4.5 inches and resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The color depth resolution will be 16M with a pixel density of 207ppi.

Other Features

The multimedia options would be limited in Samsung Galaxy Core 2. Users will get YouTube Player as well as music player. There will be a loudspeaker and a 3.5mm headphone audio set. The music player can be filtered by Playlists, Artists, and Album. Some of the important features that you will get here include Background Playback as well as Album Art Cover.


There are two cameras to be expected in Samsung Galaxy Core 2. The primary rear one having a 5 megapixels sensor (2592 х 1944 pixels resolution) with important features such as LED flash and Auto-focus. The secondary VGA camera would be present at the front of the smartphone having a sensor of 0.3 megapixel. The other camera features users can use are Smile Detection, Face Detection, Touch Focus and Geo-Tagging. Video recording facility is also there for the users to take advantage of.


The Internet connectivity options available on Samsung Galaxy Core 2 will be Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Hotspot, EDGE and GPRS. Therefore, users will get multiple internet access support. Internet speeds would be available on bands like HSDPA and HSUPA.


The internal memory would be restricted to just 4GB. However, users can expand the external memory by up to 64GB with the help of an external expandable microSD card. The leaked information also state that RAM would be available for 512MB. However, all other smarphones in Galaxy Core series have 1GB of RAM. Therefore, it seems this leaked information might not be true. It is likely that RAM of Samsung Galaxy Core 2 will be of a minimum of 1GB.

Other Features

The users of Samsung Galaxy Core 2 can access Picasa, YouTube, Google Talk, and Calendar. Gmail, Google Search, and Maps are also available here. Other important inbuilt apps will be Organizer, Document Viewer and Image/Video Editor. Games like Temple Run 3 and Contra can be easily played on this smartphone.


Samsung Galaxy Core 2 is expected to come with a 2000mAH Li-ion battery and thus expected to provide a healthy standby time and talk time.


Multiple connectivity (data and internet) options are expected on Samsung Galaxy Core 2 such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, v4.0 Bluetooth with A2DP, microUSB v2.0, EDGE and GPRS.

Other Features

Here, we will compare the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Core 2 with similarly priced Blackberry Z10. Though Blackberry first introduced this handset at a ridiculously high price of Rs. 43,490, they have now slashed it to an affordable mid-range price of Rs. 17,990. If rumors are to be believed, Samsung Core 2 will also have a similar price, which will be anything around Rs. 17,000. The Samsung handset will have the latest Android 4.4 (KitKat) OS whereas the Blackberry handset has BB OS 10 operating system. While the former will be powered by 1.2GHz quad-core processor, the latter is powered by 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. When it comes to RAM, the latter is much better equipped to the former (2GB over 512MB). Even if Core 2 is released with 1GB RAM, the same at Blackberry will be a better one. Therefore, it seems Blackberry has a better hardware specification than that of Samsung’s.  Z10 also has a better internal storage capacity (16GB over 4GB). However, the external expandable storage is same in both (up to 64GB). The users of this Blackberry smartphone will get Adreno 225 GPU.

The connectivity options you get here include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 4G LTE, 3G, GPS, and NFC. However, in Samsung Galaxy Core2, the connectivity options are much less (Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, and GPS). Both the cameras at Z10 is better than the ones with Core 2 (8MP over 5MP rear camera and 2MP over 0.3MP front faced camera). The battery capacity however, is better in the Samsung handset over Blackberry (2000mAh over 1800mAh). The screen size of Z10 is slightly smaller than Core 2 (4.2 inches rather than 4.5 inches) but the resolution is much higher (1280 x 768 pixels over 800 x 480 pixels). Though the price of Blackberry Z10 is Rs. 1000 more than Samsung Galaxy Core 2, the Blackberry product is way ahead of the Samsung one. Therefore, the verdict goes in favour of Z10.

Other Features

April 25, 2014: Samsung is all set to launch its Galaxy Core 2 smartphone after successfully launching Galaxy Core one year back. It is expected to cost around Rs. 17000 in India and will be launched in Russia on May 20, 2014 and in London on June 1, 2014. This handset will have a capacitive touchscreen display screen size of 4.5 inches and resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The color depth resolution and pixel density will be 16M and 207ppi.  This mid-ranged phone will run on the latest Android OS – Android 4.4 (KitKat). In fact, the device will be powered by a moderately strong quad-core processor clocked at a speed of 1.2GHz. The users will be able to take great pictures with the dual cameras of the smartphone.

Multiple features will be available in the camera namely, face detection, smile detection, auto-focus, geo-tagging, and touch focus. As per leaked information, this handset is going to have 512MB of RAM, which is surly a letdown. However, this information is supposedly wrong and it is expected that Samsung will unveil this smartphone with 1GB of RAM. Internal storage space of 4GB is visibly inadequate. However, the storage capacity can be expanded with the help of an external storage microSD card by up to 64GB. Multiple connectivity options will also be available at Samsung Galaxy Core 2 and they are v4.0 Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and GPS. This handset will come with a Li-ion battery of 2000mAh capacity.
