Samsung has released their budget Galaxy Core Prime smartphone in their store from India at a price of 9700 Indian Rupees, which is equivalent to 155 dollars. For now, the device is listed as “not in stock” and it’s not known when it will be.
Earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime was rumored to be released soon in India by Mahesh Telecom and back then the device was rumored to be priced at 9599 Indian Rupees. Flipkart e-commerce website listed this device at 8499 Indian Ruppes back in October, but it seems that the device was a bit more expensive than expected.

The connections that are supported by this device are: Wi-FI b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Hotspot, GPS, 3G and Bluetooth 4.0. The handset measures 130.8×67.9×8.8mm and has some metal sides, which make it look quite awesome.
