Verizon will soon start selling a new mid-range smartphone from Samsung. The company originally announced this device in India last week and so far Verizon is the only carrier that has confirmed that it will offer this device to its customers. Interested customers will be able to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime from Verizon starting Thursday, February 26th.


The specifications of this smartphone are nothing to write home about, and given that its a mid-range device, customers will certainly have appropriate expectations from the Galaxy Core Prime.

It has a 4.5-inch WVGA display. Underneath the display you’ll find 1GB RAM, 8GB onboard storage which can be expanded using microSD cards, a 2,000mAh battery as well as a 5 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front facing camera.

Android 4.4 KitKat comes pre-installed with the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime but Verizon will release an over-the-air update after a few months which will bring up the device to Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Verizon customers will be able to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, which supports the carrier’s 4G LTE network, for $29.99 with a two year contract. Off-contract pricing has not been revealed by the carrier. It will also be available on the Verizon Edge program with customers having to pay equal monthly installments of $8 per month.
