It seems the race is on for more affordable 4G LTE devices as Samsung have officially announced the Galaxy Core Lite for just TWD7990 (RM853). Other tech specs for the Galaxy Core Lite include a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, 4.7-inch display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution, 5MP rear camera with LED flash and 2000 mAh battery. Running on Android 4.3 the Galaxy Core Lite is available for Taiwan in June 2014, but there are still no details on Malaysia release dates or pricing. In related news, a number of other below RM1000 4G LTE smartphones are coming to Malaysia including the Huawei Ascend G6 and we should be able to expect the OPPO R1S or the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE eventually.

The Samsung Galaxy Core range has always been about afordable smartphones with relatively good tech specs and features. This trend continues with the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Core Advance but with a larger 4.7-inch display. It joins the Galaxy Core and Galaxy Core Plus with rather "old" tech specs that include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage + microSD, 5MP rear camera, VGA front camera and a 2000 mAh battery. While it doesn't support 4G LTE, it does have NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi b/g/n and GPS (GLONASS) features. The Galaxy Core Advance has rather standard looks (a lot like a Samsung Galaxy S3 actually) with a normal 9.7mm thinness and 145g weight. Running on Android 4.2 it also comes with a number of S features as well including S Translator, Group Play, Sound & Shot and others. The good news is that the Galaxy Core Advance has a lot of physical buttons, so you also have a dedicated camera button included. Unfortunately, no Malaysia pricing or release dates are available just yet, but it should be within the same below-RM1000 price range as the other Galaxy Core smartphones.
