While renounced Chinese Android phones makers like Tecno, Infinix, and itel had launched and released a couple of Android GO-themed phones, Samsung has just announced its first. The phone, named Samsung Galaxy J2 Core, borne Android GO Edition operating system, which is a lightweight version of Android Oreo.
Although the pre-loaded apps on the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core haven’t been announced, the phone is expected to come with a stripped down version of Google app, Assistant, YouTube, Gboard, Chrome, Maps, Files, Gmail and Google Play – just like the other Android GO phones from other manufacturers.
And because Android GO OS doesn’t require advanced specs, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core specs aren’t top-notch but perfect for the OS. The phone has a 1GB RAM, an 8GB internal memory, and 8MP and 2MP for the back and front cameras respectively.
Samsung Galaxy J2 Core’s screen measures 5.0 inches and has a resolution of 540 x 960-pixel resolution display. The phone was released yesterday in Malaysia and India, and within days, it should be available in other parts of the world.
