Samsung Galaxy Core LTE smartphone launches

Another Samsung phone that didn't make the cut for the MWC stage, although the Samsung Galaxy Core LTE could still find its own niche in the UK market.

It's a mid-range smartphone, but with the selling point of offering 4G connectivity. That should give it the edge in that particular sector. The downside is the specification, which doesn't exactly have us raving.

You are looking at a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.5-inch 960 x 540 resolution TFT display and just Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for the operating system. There's also a 5-megapixel rear camera (which is able to shoot 1080p video at 30fps), a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage (plus the usual MicroSD slot) along with Bluetooth 4.0 and a 2100mAh battery.

You also get the Samsung additions, such as the TouchWiz interface, S Voice, S Translator, Continuous Shot and Smart Shot for example. So very much swings and roundabouts.

If you want in on 4G but don't want to pay a fortune for the hardware, it might be worth checking out when it lands in the UK. As yet, we don't know when that is, although Samsung has confirmed it will be heading to Europe, as well as Asia, in the coming months.
