The launch of the Galaxy Core Lite seems imminent as Samsung has opened an official support page for the SM-G357F model number.
This budget-minded addition to the Galaxy lineup is expected to pack a 4.3-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
Multiple variants of the Core Lite are in the works, including:
- SM-G350E (dual SIM version)
The support page doesn’t reveal much, but its existence signals the phone is nearing release. Samsung typically sets these pages up just before a device goes on sale.
With its mix of entry-level specs and modern KitKat software, the Galaxy Core Lite is shaping up to be an affordable option for basic smartphone needs. Samsung is aiming to cover all tiers of the market.
Pricing and launch dates remain a mystery for now. But the Core Lite likely won’t stay under wraps too much longer. Expect more details directly from Samsung as the phone’s retail debut approaches.
For budget-conscious shoppers, the Galaxy Core Lite looks to deliver respectable value given its price point. Though the specs won’t impress power users, Samsung is meeting a key need with this no-frills addition.
