Towards the end of last year, Samsung released a budget smartphone called the Galaxy Core Prime. The device contained a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, 1GB of RAM, and ran Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, but now runs Android Lollipop. All of this was was offered at a budget price point and it caused the device to become decently popular among consumers, especially Samsung fans. Samsung obviously realized this as now there is a good piece of evidence that says the smartphone giant will soon be releasing a successor to the Galaxy Core Prime.
Evidence of a successor to the Galaxy Core Prime comes from a listing on a Dutch retailer’s website. Said listing contained a few images of the device as well as some specs. Before talking about that, here is probably the most important information from the listing. The release date of the device, in the Netherlands at least, will be July 23. Now, let’s talk specs. The successor to the Galaxy Core Prime will be called the Galaxy Core Prime Value Edition. It will feature a 4.5-inch display, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of internal storage, 4G LTE support, 5MP rear-facing camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera. Out-of-the-box the Prime Value Edition will be running Android 5.1 Lollipop. None of these specs, including the Android version are much better than the original Galaxy Core Prime, unfortunately. But, in the end that’s the sacrifice that consumers have to endure for a budget device such as this one.
There is currently no word on pricing yet seeing as the Galaxy Core Prime Value Edition hasn’t even necessarily been made official, but seeing as the device will be released soon in the Netherlands, some official word from Samsung in the near future would not come as a surprise. Speaking of that, there is also no word yet as to where this device will be getting released. Right now the only place it will be released that is known is the Netherlands. When the device does become official you can probably expect there to be more information and details regarding the actual cost of the phone as well as release dates and the regions in which it’s going to launch.
