Rumor has it that the Galaxy Core will ship with a 4.3-inch 800x480 display and feature a 1.2GHz unknown processor. It is also said to feature 768MB of system RAM, which is a very odd number, considering convention is done in multiples of 512MB. The phone will supposedly handle photo capturing with a 5MP rear camera and will be dual SIM capable.

The smartphone is expected to ship with Android 4.1 and will run TouchWiz. The phone's specifications are very similar to those of the Galaxy S II Plus as well as the Galaxy Win that is set to release in China.


An official launch has not been set, but the rumor mill says that it should blast off in Russia next month at about 14,000 Ruble or about $450 USD.
