Galaxy Core LTE shoots for cheap 4G

Mobile
Hello, phone fans. We're at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, checking out. This is the Samsung Galaxy Core LTE. Now, as you probably know, Samsung is best known for making really, really enormous mobiles. But this is actually one of its smaller options. It has a 4.5-inch display, and this is becoming harder and harder to find phones that are roughly this size. This could instantly be a contender if you do prefer those more manageable mobiles. It has a 1.2 gigaHertz dual core processor now on paper that is not as powerful as some of the quad core mobiles that we see around these days. But anecdotally, using it here, it does feel quite sleek and smooth. I didn't notice any stuttering moving through home screens or menus. Around the back, there's a 5-megapixel camera, and this thing is running Android version 4.2.2. Now, that's not the very latest edition of Android, but it's still extremely sophisticated software. And Samsung's put loads of its own apps on here, so you'll have plenty to keep you busy. As the name implies, this thing has LTE or 4G, so you will get faster mobile data. Because the specs aren't too impressive, I'm hopeful that this phone will be quite cheap and could be a good way of getting affordable 4G. It's out in the UK in the next few months. Here's hoping we can find it at a decent price. Let me know what you think. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET. Check out CNET.com for loads more from Mobile World Congress.
