Samsung Galaxy Core 2 and Pocket 2 dual-SIMs leak [UPDATE]

16 June, 2014

Obviously not satisfied with the number of already available "Galaxy Pocket " and "Galaxy Core " versions, Samsung is working on sequels for both of these devices. Both showed up at Mainguyen, a Vietnamese web shop.

Samsung G355H Galaxy Core 2 Duos

The Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Duos will be an affordable dual-SIM phone with a 4.5" WVGA screen (207ppi). It has a quad-core processor (Cortex-A7) and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but memory is limited – 768MB RAM and 4GB storage, plus a microSD card slot.

The phone has 21Mbps 3G and Wi-Fi b/g/n, plus Bluetooth 4.0. Both SIM cards have quad-band 2G, while the 3G is just dual-band. It doesn’t become clear from the specs, but presumably only one card will have 3G connectivity.

The camera department of the Galaxy Core 2 Duos boasts a 5MP main shooter with LED flash and a VGA selfie camera. The phone measures 130.2 x 67.9 x 9.8mm, weighs 138g and houses a 2,000mAh battery.

Update, June 17: The site has been updated with prices, the Galaxy Core 2 Duos will cost VND 3,990,000 or $190 / €140.

Samsung G110H Galaxy Pocket 2

This one is a dual-SIM phone too, but it's an entry level smartphone par excellence. The Samsung Galaxy Pocket 2 has a 3.2" QVGA screen and while it runs a fresh Android 4.4.2 KitKat, it does so on a single-core 1GHz processor with 512MB RAM.

It has the same connectivity as the Galaxy Core 2 Duos though, meaning quad-band 2G for both cards and dual-band 21Mbps 3G for at least one card.

The two cameras on board are only 2MP/VGA snappers and the battery is a tiny 1,200mAh unit. The Galaxy Pocket 2 lives up to its name with its dimensions of 109.7 x 60.6 x 11.7mm and 110g of weight.

Update, June 17: The Galaxy Pocket 2 will cost VND 1,800,000 or $85 / €63.

Both phones are listed as Coming Soon and we find no evidence that either is official. There's no price for either of them too. The last time the Galaxy Core 2 leaked back in late April and the scuttlebutt was that it will launch in Russia on May 20 at RUR9,990 (€200 / $280). At least half of that info proved false.

Thanks to Nguyen for sending this in!
