Samsung Galaxy Core Plus officially launched

Has Samsung launched a new phone every month this year? It seems like that's the case, with a good number being forgotten just days after they launched. The Samsung Galaxy Core Plus is a good example of that.

Presumably it fills a gap in the company's portfolio, but we're not quite sure which one. it's an upgrade of the original Galaxy Core, that's for sure, a phone that only arrived in May of this year. But it doesn't offer much on that handset. It does offer a step up in operating system, going for Android 4.2 as opposed to the Galaxy Core running Android 4.1. But that's not exactly a big step up.

Also, rather confusingly, some of the other features seem to be a step down. The new model has 768MB RAM and 4GB of expandable storage, compared to 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage inside the Core. It also packs a similar  1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 screen, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a front VGA camera.

Its saving grace is likely to be price, although with the likes of the Motorola Moto G on the market, Samsung might find it a tough call to shift this modest offering it is comes in at over £100 in the UK.
