The Galaxy Core Prime Value Edition will be available for 8600 Rupees or the equivalent of 115 Euros and come with a smaller screen size.

In Germany and Austria, online merchants are selling the Galaxy Core Prime Value Edition with the model name G361F and with color options including Black, Silver, and White for roughly 140 Euros. Samsung will be bringing the budget smartphone to India for a lower asking price of 115 Euros instead. The Value Edition includes an 800 x 480 resolution 4.5-inch display and a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor.

Samsung presented a slightly pricier LTE variant called the Galaxy Grand Prime in 2014. This original model uses a larger 960 x 540 resolution 5-inch display for a higher asking price of 150 Euros. Multiple retailers are listing the Core Prime Value Edition with either Android 4.4 KitKat or Android 5.1 Lollipop, so it is conceivable that individual units could ship with KitKat with future upgrades to Lollipop.

Differences between the Value Edition and the original Grand Prime include a higher-clocked processor and Bluetooth 4.1 for the newer version. The original is on par with the very weak Galaxy J2, which uses a similar qHD panel and is also available for around 113 Euros.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
