Notably, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime 4G is also available via an e-commerce website at a discounted price of Rs. 9,750. Initially announced in February, it was then set to be made available in India in March – but never did release.
Last week an established Mumbai-based retailer had claimed that the Galaxy Core Prime 4G had gone on sale in India at Rs. 9,999. The retailer had claimed that the smartphone comes with free bundled offers from the company including up to 3GB free 4G data on Airtel network; free Hungama premium offer (with 3 months) subscription, and Vuclip prime offer (with 3 months subscription).
To recall, the Galaxy Core Prime 4G was unveiled alongside the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime 4G and Galaxy J1 4G. The Galaxy Core Prime 4G supports TDD-LTE (2300MHz) 4G networks used in India. The 3G-variant of the smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, is already available in the Indian market.
The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime 4G, much like its 3G variant, runs Android 4.4 KitKat and features dual-SIM support, a 4.5-inch WVGA (480×800 pixels) PLS (plane-to-line switching) TFT LCD display, and a 1.2GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. It comes with 8GB of inbuilt storage, and supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 64GB). The smartphone sports a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and also packs a 2-megapixel front camera on board.
The Galaxy Core Prime 4G measures 131.3×68.4×8.8mm, sports matte body finish with metal sides. It will be available in Charcoal Grey, White, and Silver colours. On the connectivity front, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime 4G offers 3G, GPRS/ EDGE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB, NFC, Glonass, A-GPS, and Bluetooth options. It is backed by a 2000mAh battery.
