Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy Core 2 leaks on its way to Russia
Its model number is SM-G355, and its specs have been leaked today along with some official-looking images depicting it. The Galaxy Core 2 has a 4.5-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera, a 0.3 MP front camera, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, dual-SIM, HSPA+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat (nice to see such a low-end device getting the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, but it’s unlikely to ever be updated to a new one). Its dimensions are 129.7×67.9×9.8 mm, and it weighs 138 grams.
It will become available in Russia on May 20, and will retail for 9,990 rubles (which means around $277 or €200 at the current exchange rates). We’re obviously expecting it to make its way to other countries and territories as well, but for now the only leaked release date is for Russia, so it’s unclear if the international rollout will start there or will happen sooner.
