Last year, Samsung launched its first ever Android Go smartphone called Galaxy J2 Core. It is also the first Android Go smartphone to come with a custom UI. Recently, there are leaks about the new Android Go smartphone which will be launched under the Galaxy A series. It will be named as Galaxy A2 Core and comes with the model number SM-A260. The leaked press renders already revealed the design of the device.
Today, the user manual and complete specifications of the device are leaked online. Just like its predecessor, the new Galaxy A2 Core will be coming with a 5-inch TFT display with qHD (960 x 540 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is the 14nm Exynos 7870 quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz and Mali-T830 MP1 GPU. It packs 1GB of RAM and will mostly come with 8GB of internal storage. There is also a dedicated MicroSD card slot for further expansion of storage on this device.
While Google already released Android 9.0 Pie (Go Edition), the upcoming Galaxy A2 Core will be running on Android Oreo (GO Edition) out of the box. On the rear, the device sports 5MP camera with f/1.9 aperture and LED flash. Just below the rear camera setup is the single speaker. While the device also comes with a selfie camera on the front, the resolution is unknown. The Galaxy A2 Core measures 141.6 x 71.0 x 9.1 mm and weighs 142 grams.
The 2,600mAh battery on this device is good enough to last for one complete day of usage. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, FM Radio, 3.5mm audio jack, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. While there is no fingerprint scanner, we expect the company to at least add face unlock support. We expect the company to launch the Galaxy A2 Core at the scheduled launch event on April 10th.
