Labeled with an extremely low price tag of $29.99 the Galaxy Core Prime is now on sale in carriers stores nationwide on contract. If you are a budget-conscious person who thinks twice before spending some money on a new phone, you may be interested in the Verizon’s recent offer.
Samsung Galaxy Core Prime for Verizon
The Big Red carrier will make the Samsung Galaxy Core (aka the Galaxy Prevail LTE) available online starting today for $29.99 on a 2-year contract. Additionally, if you are a Verizon Edge customer you will be able to get the phone for only $8 per month. If you don’t like buying phones online, the device will also hit the carrier’s local stores starting March 5th.
Moving on to the handset itself, the LTE-capable Galaxy Core Prime sports Verizon’s Advanced Calling 1.0 feature for VoLTE and runs the Android 4.4 KitKat right out of the box. The phone’s OS is promised to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the nearest future. ]
When it comes to specs, the phone houses a 4.5 WVGA 480x800p display and is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor paired with 1GB RAM and a bit disappointing 8GB of built-in storage that later can be expanded up to even 128GB via microSD card.
On the optics side the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime offers its users a decent combination of a 5-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. Furthermore, the slate also packs a 2,000 mAh battery with Ultra Power Saving Mode, which taking into account the handset’s pretty basic hardware should last a whole day on a single charging.
Announced for the first time in October 2014, the budget-friendly Galaxy Core Prime is now within your reach at highly affordable price. So, if you’re thinking about getting yourself a nice and cheap phone that will meet all the modern communication, entertainment and productivity standards, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime may be the one you are looking for. At this point Verizon is the only carrier distributing the phone in the US, but there’s unofficial information circulating the net saying that Boost Mobile also is planning to add the handset to their offer.
