Galaxy Core - isnow up for pre-order on the Samsung India eStore for Rs 15,350. The company will start shipping the smartphone from July 1.
Samsung Galaxy Core up
for pre-order for Rs
15350 in Samsung India eStore...it's better to spend Rs 1k more and get Sony Xperia L which has Krait cores, 720p video recording and Adreno 305 GPU...
Its "available" on flipkart for Rs. 15200. What do you think of price. I think its ridiculous to ask this much for outdated phone. One interesting spec it has is "smart dual active sim", means while using one sim, you can simulteneously use the other sim.
If cpu is cortex a5 arm v7 and gpu is adreno 203 then there are two possibilities:
1. The price of this phone will be reduced drastically very soon
2.Samsung has gone mad, as cortex a5 is one of the oldest chipsets in smartphones and moreover quattro is nearly priced but by far better than this brother model.
The Shephard, 22 Jun 2013CPU Instruction Set is ARMv7
CPU is Cortex A5....Watch video properly, Qualcomm has no dual c... moreGalaxy fame is priced around Rs. 10500, single core a5.
Galaxy quattro at Rs. 16500, quad core a5.
So I think galaxy core will be about Rs. 13500.
But sony xperia M should also cost about Rs. 14000. Sony xperia M has dual core krait (but lesser internal memory 4gb, and camera 5mp)

[deleted post]Its Samsung I8552 - Galaxy Grand Quattro not Galaxy core
Good news for Mediatek Fans.....
Lava to release A500+ which has the MT6572 budget chip.
A500+ reportedly has a dual core cortex A7 cpu clocked to 1GHz, single core MALI 400-MP 3D Gpu...
This phone comes with Android 4.1 JB with promised update to 4.2
Price tag to be 6499 INR...reportedly coming in June itself...
i think samsung is a xerox machine. all phones look the same!!!!!!
Its like samsung galaxy win or quattro in india which is quad core. I wonder if this is more affordable and perform well.
yeah you are right that cortex a5 is low performing chip but you have to also take into account that it is quad core chip at 1.2 ghz.. and if you compare it with dual 1 ghz krait the performance is not much different cpu wise.. but it will be good only in tose apps which ustitlizes full 4 cores.. i think most apps are now designed to support 4 cores.. i too won't buy it because it comes with adreno 203.. see dmips for processors
a15 - 3.5
multiply it by clock speed and no of cores..
a5 quad = 1.6 x 4 x 1.2 = 7.688 4 ores genrally operate at 80-85 % of the capacity so ar0und 6.4
krait dual - 3.3 x 2 x 1 = 6.6
as you can see the performance difference is hardly 5 % between dual krait and quad a5.. so do not disregard it as completely waste... you can confirm the same by checking antutu scores of cpu... it scores high because of presence of extra cores but in single threaded performance dual krait will kill it.. just wanted to make a point cortex a5 quad is not that bad as people think it is .. there is not much difference between a5 and a7 still people hail a7 as masterpiece in xolo q800 and mmx a116 and crib about a5
The Shephard, 05 Jun 2013This phone will do its job regardless of its chip(only 480p capable) but price will be the dec... moreyeah, the phone will do it's job. But Xperia M has Krait cores and as you said Krait's performance lies between Cortex A9 and A15 and Adreno 305 with 1 GB RAM so it is a better choice, right?(XM also also has 720p video recording)...And Optimus F3 also has good specs but i think it will be priced much higher than Core and XM because it is sporting 1.2Ghz processor and IPS display and not forget 4G LTE...
Good news For indian people. samsung galaxy core is listed in flipkart as coming soon.
Manju, 04 Jun 2013you were right Mr.Shephard...it has Snapdragon S4 Play chipset...Samsung's website says it doe... moreThis phone will do its job regardless of its chip(only 480p capable) but price will be the deciding factor.
The Xperia M now has the same chipset as
Nokia Lumia 520 (which costs 10K)
i.e. Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8227
1 GHz Dual-core Krait should put its benchmarks right between cortex A9 and cortex A15.
Adreno 305 scores 6.3 fps in 1080p offscreen test
However Mali 400 MP scores 6.8 fps in the same test (this is not the single core mali 400, MP could mean MP2(dual-core) or MP4(quad-core)
There have been various leaks on the internet about MT 6572 from mediatek having a Mali 400MP gpu. MT 6572 has a combo connectivity chip which reduces its cost significantly and is completely 720p capable...its rumored to be in phones which cost around 100$...
Micromax should soon be implementing this chip and bringing phones in the range 6K-8K which is good news for people who dont want their phone to cost an arm and a leg.
The Shephard, 27 May 2013Source may not be entirely reliable all the time.....
http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=specs&am... moreyou were right Mr.Shephard...it has Snapdragon S4 Play chipset...Samsung's website says it doesn't record or play 720p videos and so is S4 Play....what a let down...now i waiting for Ace 3 or LG Optimus F3(not the L3!)...and Sony just announces Xperia M...it's also very interesting device...
please anyone of you can tell me the expected price of this cell phone in Pakistan? and Date of Release too??
