Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy J2 Core as its first ever Android Go smartphone. It is also the first Android Go smartphone to come with a custom skin on the top. Now, the company is getting ready to unveil the successor to Galaxy J2 Core. However, the new Android Go smartphone from Samsung is rumored to be launched under the Galaxy A series. The device with the model number SM-A260F is now spotted on Wi-Fi certification website.
Back in August 2018, Google has already released the Android 9 Pie (Go Edition). Even though the certifications shows the device will be running on Android Oreo (Go Edition), we expect the device to come with the latest Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) out of the box. On the connectivity front, the Wi-Fi on this device also supports the 2.5GHz band. As of now, there is no official information from Samsung about the new Android Go smartphone.
Talking about the Galaxy J2 Core, the device comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It is priced at Rs 5,990 and comes in Blue, Black, and Gold color options. The device sports a 5-inch display with qHD (960 x 540 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is 14nm Exynos 7570 processor quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. The device supports 4G VoLTE and includes a MicroSD card slot for further expansion of storage.
On the rear, we can spot the single 8MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash. For selfies, the device sports a 5MP front-facing camera with the same f/2.2 aperture. Though it is backed by a 2,600mAh battery, the advantage of the Android Go OS will make it last till the day end. While the company restructured its budget segment, let’s wait and see what the company offers with its upcoming Android Go smartphone. Stay tuned on PhineRadar for more details!
