The long-rumored Android Go smartphone from Samsung isn’t by any means the most anticipated device from South Korea’s chaebol right now, hower, it appears tech pundits are all very well excited seeing an Android Go device from the Korean giant. The expected Android Go phone purportedly called the Galaxy J2 Core has been subjects of rumors and leaks in the last couples of weeks and more recently showed up on the Geekbench site.
Today, we’re looking at a couple of live images of the device, revealed by Sammobile. While it has been widely expected that the device will come with stock Android OS out of the box, today’s leaked images indicate that Samsung might have customized the Android Go OS, as the device is seen running the Android Go OS with the Samsung Experience UI on top.
Stock Android on not, the Galaxy J2 Core is still a Go device, so it is expected to come with slimmer Go versions of Google, but with apps icons and on-screen navigation that looks borrowed straight from devices like the Galaxy S9.
So far, the leaks and reports claim the Galaxy J2 Core would offer no surprises in specs, as it will reportedly come with a 5.0-inch display, with an Exynos 7570 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz and 1GB of RAM and 16GB storage. The device is said to come with an 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, while a 2,600 mAh will light up the device.
While there are indications Samsung would unveil the device soon, so far we’ve got no official word when it will be revealed. However, we will update you as soon as we get useful information on this. Stay tuned.
