Samsung is rumored to launch its first ever Android Go in the near future. The device is already listed on benchmarking websites with the model number SM-J260F. Just like other Android Go smartphones, the Samsung’s smartphone will also come with Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) out of the box. Interestingly, the device will offer stock UI instead of Samsung Experience skin. However, we might see a few Samsung apps coming pre-installed on this device.
While the SM-J260F will be available in Europe, the same device is also being tested with the model numbers SM-J260M and SM-J260G in other parts of the world. With the newly leaked image, we also got to know the specifications of the device. Before going any further, take these details with a pinch of salt. The device is mentioned to come with a 5-inch Super AMOLED display. Earlier to this, the company also used Super AMOLED panels on quite a few low-cost smartphones.
Under the hood is the in-house Exynos 7570 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. The device will be offering 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Coming to the cameras, the first Android Go smartphone from Samsung will be offering an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. It is mentioned to come powered by a 2,600mAh battery. It should at least give a single day of usage, considering the Android Go Edition OS. We also expect the device to come with a polycarbonate shell.
While a few manufacturers are opting for 18:9 display for their Android Go smartphones, we think Samsung will stick with the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Even the recently launched Galaxy J4 (2018) smartphone also came with 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 16:9 aspect ratio and is powered by the same Exynos 7570 quad-core processor. As of now, there is no official confirmation from Samsung about the launch of its first Android Go smartphone. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
