Expanding its Galaxy line-up of Android smartphones, the Korean manufacturer Samsung today took the wraps off four new smartphones. The new Galaxy Core II, Galaxy Ace 4, Galaxy Young 2, and Galaxy Star 2 belong to the company’s mid-range and entry-level smartphone portfolio.
The company has not revealed any details about the pricing or availability right now but we expect to hear more in the coming weeks.
Starting with Samsung Galaxy Core II, which is the most powerful phone out of the four, it features a 4.5-inch WVGA display, 768MB of RAM, 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 2000 mAh battery. Galaxy Ace 4 sports a 4-inch WVGA display and is powered by 1.2GHz dual-processor. It will be released in two variants – LTE and 3G, both pack slightly different specifications.
Coming to Samsung Galaxy Young 2, this successor to the company’s previously launched Galaxy Young includes 3.5-inch HVGA display, 1GHz single-core processor, 1300 mAh battery and 512MB of RAM. Lastly, Galaxy Star 2, which will be most affordable phone out of the lot, also features 3.5-inch HVGA display and 1GHz processor.

Yet another round of gadget spamming from SS. I fail to understand how the amount of installed RAM can actually go down from last year’s version in Core II. If I recall correctly, it had 1 full GB, right? And single cores in 2014, seriously?
Oh well, who cares. Anybody who buys Sammy instead of Moto at that price range probably deserves to be ripped off anyways – for being a dumb@$$ LOL!
It’s just that the much needed competition is just not materializing 😦
