Entry-level Samsung Galaxy Core Prime Value Edition coming to India
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.
