The next cab off the rank from Samsung is coming on store shelves shortly. You’ll find a basic mix of features inside the Samsung Galaxy Core I8260, including up to 1 GB of RAM on-board and a 1.2GHz dual-core chip delivering the major horsepower.
Inside, there’s a 4.3-inch panel using TFT capacitive touchscreen technology with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, however, Samsung hasn’t specified the CPU or graphics core driving this phone.
An 8 GB cache of internal flash handles on-board storage while there’s microSD, up to 64 GB, to provide bulk space outside of the device. There’s Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) inside to keep the CPU interested with the latest apps. And for power, the device includes an 1800mAh Li-Ion-type battery but unfortunately, no talk or standby times were available at time of publishing.
Connectivity such as Wi-Fi is included in the form of 802.11 b/g/n-standard options and Bluetooth v3.0 covers wireless personal communications. There’s basic 2G coverage on networks supporting the 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz bands while 3G is covered only by 900 / 2100MHz bands.
A 5 MP (2592×1944 pixels) with autofocus image sensor on the back delivers the device’s best photo quality and you get a secondary VGA option on the front for self-portraits. The device is also capable of capturing video but only up to a moderate 480p@30fps.
The Samsung Galaxy Core I8260 lands on the scales with 124 grams and measures 129.3 x 67.6 x 9 mm. The unit was originally announced in May 2013 and is expected to hit store shelves in July 2013.
