The entry-level Samsung Galaxy Core may have been launched not too long ago (approximately half a year) but that doesn’t mean that the company can’t come up with a slightly upgraded version for it. Samsung recently announced the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance that is almost identical to the original Galaxy Core, except for a bigger display and the addition of many physical buttons.
Don’t be confused by the Galaxy Core Plus that was announced about two months back, the Galaxy Core Advance may have a similar 1.2GHz dual-core processor as the previous two Galaxy Cores, 5MP rear camera, VGA front camera, HSPA connectivity, expandable internal storage and such, but the Galaxy Core Advance is noticeably different because of its larger screen size – 4.3” vs 4.7”, a larger battery capacity of 2,000mAh, as well as the addition of a lot of physical buttons catered for users who are less comfortable with a touch-screen experience – dedicated keys for voice recorder, camera, volume, menu, home and power functions.
Other features include Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, Android 4.2, and some of the latest Samsung Touchwiz features like S Voice, S Translator, Sound & Shot, Group Play and Easy Mode. The device will be launched early next year in Deep Blue and Pearl White color options.
