Samsung Electronics today introduced the Galaxy Core Advance, combining the powerful Galaxy user experience with enhanced features. The Galaxy Core Advance has a premium design, sporting a large 4.7” display as well as a soft coated back cover that makes it more durable, and giving it a soft touch, making it easier and more comfortable to grip in your hand. The Galaxy Core Advance also incorporates physical keys for frequently used features and dedicated keys for voice recorder, camera, volume, menu, home and power functions.
Together with its stylish design, Galaxy Core Advance provides a connected experience with updated Bluetooth 4.0. The Galaxy Core comes equipped with GPS with GLONASS offering improved location accuracy and NFC with S Beam so you can share information such as YouTube videos, contact details and audio files with just a tap.

To extend the Galaxy experience to more people, the Galaxy Core Advance also has convenient usability functions and enhanced accessibility features for disabled and visually impaired users.
