Samsung has launched four new Galaxy smartphones, all of which will bolster the company’s entry-level ranks. Android 4.4 KitKat is installed on all four, which is great news, but rather than slap the full TouchWiz user interface over the top, Samsung has used a stripped down, simplified version it calls TouchWiz Essence instead.

Initially introduced on the little-seen Galaxy Ace Style in April, Samsung has confirmed TouchWiz Essence will be installed on the new Galaxy Core 2, Galaxy Trend 2 (Galaxy Ace 4 outside of Europe), Galaxy Young 2, and the Galaxy Star 2.

The Galaxy Core 2 (pictured above) has the highest specifications, coming with a 4.5-inch, 480 x 800 pixel screen, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, and a 5-megapixel camera. Samsung has had a go at classing it up with a leather-look rear panel too. The Galaxy Ace 4 comes with either 3G or 4G connectivity, which should make it as popular as its predecessors, plus a 4-inch, 480 x 800 pixel screen, a dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel camera.

Finally, the Galaxy Young 2 and the Galaxy Star 2 are quite similar, both boasting 3.5-inch, 320 x 480 pixel screens, and single core processors. The Young 2 has a 3-megapixel camera, while the Star 2 has just 2-megapixels. Regardless of which new Galaxy phone you choose, they all have 4GB of internal memory, plus a MicroSD card slot.
