Samsung has an Android Go phone in development and it is expected to launch as the Galaxy J2 Core. Unlike other Android Oreo (Go Edition) phones that run a clean version of the OS, the Galaxy J2 Core runs Samsung’s Experience UI.
Samsung has not yet announced a date for the release of the phone and we don’t expect it to since this is an entry level. The phone’s user manual has surfaced seen online ahead of whatever time Samsung decides to release it.
The user manual reveals the Galaxy J2 Core will have a removable back plate and a removable battery. It will have support for two SIM cards and also has support for storage expansion. Other features mentioned are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 4G LTE. There is also a MicroUSB port for charging.
The Galaxy J2 Core is an entry-level phone so it skips the features and design of Samsung’s more expensive phones. It has huge bezels, is missing a fingerprint scanner and iris scanner, and has a single camera on both sides.
The Galaxy J2 Core should launch soon and will probably be priced under €100 or $100.
