Samsung has finally announced its first Android Go smartphone. Google’s Android Go OS is a lighter version of stock Android, and is designed and optimised to go easy on low-end models. This is exactly what Samsung’s Galaxy J2 Core is.
The phone runs an Exynos 7570 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. On top of a small 960×540 LCD screen, the camera manages an 8MP camera on the back, as well as a 5MP selfie camera. The battery is also serviceable with a 2,600mAh battery that should last a single day.
With the limited amount of capabilities, it should be a given that the Galaxy J2 Core is a budget device through and through. Even so, Android Go makes good use of limited RAM and storage. The software offers apps such as Google Go, Gmail Go, Maps Go, and more without befuddling processes much.
Seeing as this is a low-cost phone, Samsung is ramping up sales for Malaysia and India first. At the moment, however, no details on price and availability have been revealed yet.
For now, stay tuned here and on Samsung’s Facebook for further details as they come.
