Samsung is an OEM that likes to throw everything at the wall to see what sticks, evidently, as even more smartphones from it are on the way. The Samsung Galaxy Pocket 2 and Core 2 Duos are allegedly to be new Samsung smartphones in the near future, if a Vietnamese online store is to be believed.
The Pocket 2 would be the successor of the original Pocket, along with 2013’s Pocket Plus and Pocket Neo. This one’s reportedly for the smartphone low-end, as a 3.2-inch QVGA display, 512MB of RAM, a 1.0 GHz processor, and more weak internals are expected to be found within it. Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) will allegedly power the device, so performance shouldn’t be as bad as it would have been on older revisions of the OS.
The Core 2 Duos isn’t going to stun anyone, but is most definitely a better device than the Pocket 2. A 4.5-inch WVGA display, 5MP rear camera, and a quad-core processor (with no additional details) make this one up, and it runs atop Android 4.4.2 as well. The Core 2 Duos will almost certainly be faster than the Pocket 2, but something has us worrying about performance issues on both (ahem, TouchWiz).
We don’t know when to expect to see these new Samsung smartphones, but soon is a good estimate.
