Samsung Galaxy Core LTE
We get our grips on Samsung's midrange 4G phone, the Galaxy Core LTE, which is set for a UK release in the second quarter. Click through for loads of photos.
The bottom edge of the Galaxy Core LTE houses a microphone pinhole and a mini-USB port.
The volume rocker on the side slightly bubbles above the edge, making it easy to find when in your pocket.
Is that what I think it is?
From this angle, the Galaxy Core LTE looks a little like another recognizable smartphone.
The sleek slides lose their high-end appeal due to the Galaxy Core LTE's extra girth.
Jelly Bean flavor of Android
Though it ships with Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2., the Galaxy Core LTE still offers a bevy of useful features.
Solid build for a budget buy
The Core LTE is expected to be affordably priced when it hits stores, yet its build feels anything but cheap. The solid smartphone appears to pack a solid build quality.

It's almost like it's winking
If the LED flash was an eye, the camera a cute button nose, the speaker a winky eye, and the Samsung logo a smirk -- right? Is it just me? Anyways, the aligned features work best when using the smartphone in its default portrait orientation.
4G LTE please
The fast browsing and data downloads while out-and-about is one of the main appeals of a tablet with 4G LTE capabilities.
Back in black
Samsung offers the Core LTE smartphone in black or white.
Black in the front
