It has only been a few months since Google launched Android Go but it looks like the plan has a bright future. After Nokia and some other smaller brands, Samsung just recently launched its first Android Go phone in the country.
As usual for phones running the Android Go platform, the J2 trades high-end specs for a cheaper price while still providing acceptable performance.
The phone will come with a Quad-core Exynos 7570 SoC and 1Gb of RAM. Under the hood, the phone will run Android 8.1 Oero Go edition with some Google optimized apps including Files Go, Assistant Go, GBorad and Gmail Go.
Probably most interestingly, phones with Android Go get updates directly from the mothership and the J2 Core will also be devoid of bloatware and apps that Samsung installed on its other phones.
Apart from the unimpressive specs of SoC, the phone will come with a 5-inch qHD display and an 8-megapixel camera on the back with an LED flash. Samsung has also added a 5-megapixel sensor on the front.
“The Galaxy J2 Core offers a complete smartphone experience, incorporating some of the key features available on high-end devices with improved battery, storage, and performance that is particularly appealing to first time owners,” said Junho Park, VP of Global Product Planning.
The company has not announced the exact price of the phone yet, but we can expect it to be quite cheap considering its OS and its specs.
