Samsung has quitely launched a successor to the Galaxy Core Android smartphone, called Galaxy Core Plus. The plus sign on the device indicates it is an upgrade over the previous generation, but surprisingly it is a downgrade from the Galaxy Core if you look at the hardware specs.
Galaxy Core Plus features a 4.3-inch TFT screen with 800 x480 pixels resolution. It is powered by a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor. It comes with 768MB of RAM along with 4GB of internal storage, which is a downgrade if you compare Galaxy Core, the latter comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
Galaxy Core Plus runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS which is an upgrade over the Galaxy Core running Android 4.1. Other specifications remain the same compared with its predecessor.
