Samsung Will Release Two Value Edition Models
We were told last week that a new version of the Galaxy Grand Prime, the Value Edition, was in the works. Apparently, another Value Edition device has passed through the certification process in Taiwan and it is based on the Galaxy Core Prime design. Samsung smartphone device could run the new Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.
As comparison, the original Core Prime is equipped with Android 5.0, instead of the slightly updated Android 5.1. Unfortunately, the phone is largely unchanged hardware-wise. It is still equipped with 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, 4.5-inch display, 8GB of internal storage, 4G LTE connection and 5Mp rear-facing shooter.
Regardless of the slight improvement, we should see it as a positive step, especially given most of the company’s line-up is still using the older Lollipop or Android version. Nevertheless, the phone should represent a minor step forward and casual users won’t see any difference in terms of software implementation.
Meanwhile, the aforementioned Value Edition of the Galaxy Grand Prime offers more than a slight software update. Curiously, it seems like a step back with its less powerful Cortex A53 quad-core Marvel PXA1908 processor, compared to the Snapdragon 410 on the original. But this contributes to the lower overall price.
