The much-rumored Android Go smartphone from Samsung could be arriving soon. The device has cleared virtually all pre-requisite certifications needed before a device is made official. The device allegedly dubbed Samsung Galaxy J2 Core a few hours ago cleared the Bluetooth certification.
Although the Bluetooth documentation didn’t include a name, it did certify the device under different model numbers all of which are similar to the one earlier tied to the Galaxy J2 Core Android Go phone. The model numbers SM-J260F, SM-J260M, SM-J260Y, SM-J260F_DS, SM-J260G_DS, SM-J260M_DS, and SM-J260Y_DS are thought to be different variants of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core destined for different regions including South America, Asia, and Europe.
While the Bluetooth listing didn’t divulge any major details except for its support for Bluetooth 4.2, previous leaks suggest the device would look much like Samsung basic entry-level smartphones and will come fitted with a 5.0″ super AMOLED display with 16:9 aspect ratio, while the home-grown Exynos 7570 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz will take charge of its processing needs.
The major selling point of the device, however, is its Android OS. The device is tipped to boot the Android Go – a lightweight version of Google’s 8.0 Oreo with Samsung’s own Experience UI on top. Other rumored specs can be found here.
We are yet to get official confirmation when the alleged Samsung Galaxy J2 Core Android Go smartphone will be announced, however, there are indications it might launch alongside the upcoming Galaxy Note 9.
